For improved steering during riding, the addition of a steering damper can go a long way toward adding steering precision and comfort. A steering damper kit adds just the right amount of resistance and keeps your motorcycle tracking where you direct it. It can also help reduce kickback and vibrations that transmit from the road up into your handlebars, which is tiring, especially over long distances.
At Design Corse, we offer a wide range of upgrade parts and accessories for your performance motorcycle, including the Ohlin steering damper kit from Moto Corse. The Ohlins steering stabilizer offers many great advantages over other aftermarket brands:
Designed for easy installation on your MV Agusta F3, an Ohlins damper kit only requires a few common tools for installation. If you already have a damper installed, start by removing your existing damper. All you need is a 5mm Allen Hex driver or key:
With your existing damper removed, you can start with the installation of your Ohlins damper:
Note: If you do not currently have a damper installed, you will need to get a fitting bracket kit along with the steering damper and install this prior to following the above steps. Instructions for this are included with the fitting bracket.
That's all it takes! When you straighten up your handlebars, you'll see the damper sits mid-way along the damper rod. Turn full right and full left a few times to verify that your damper moves freely and doesn't bind. Double check that you have tightened according to specification and always avoid over-tightening, which can damage your damper kit or motorcycle.
It is always a good idea to put a sheet or cloth over your tank when you’re installing your Moto Corse steering damper kit, as it only takes one slip to scratch the paint on your tank. Thanks to the attractive design of the Ohlins damper, your MV Agusta will look better than new and offer steering damping and feedback like it’s a totally different motorcycle!
At Design Corse, we don't sell aftermarket products we wouldn't buy ourselves. Not only is this a fast and straightforward install, but it also allows for adjustment while riding and reacts differently at low, medium and high speeds, giving you the right amount of damping and feedback you need at each speed.
Check out our catalog for part specifications and let us know if you have any questions! You can also choose the color that best suits your MV Agusta F3 — go for intense flat black or eye-catching machined aluminum.
Once you have installed your Moto Corse Ohlins steering damper kit, grab a few pictures and send us a review. We’d love to hear your impressions and learn your tips on how best to install the damper. Your advice will go a long way in helping other MV Agusta enthusiasts with their own installations!
