While the BMW S1000RR comes with a steering damper from the factory, there is always room for improvement. This is why we recommend swapping the stock unit out for a shaft-style damper from Ohlins - which is exactly the route that we went when we built our own BMW S1000RR project bike.
Ohlins Steering Dampers are easy to install and each bike specific kit comes with all the necessary hardware to do to the job. Once installed, the unit allows you switch to your preferred amount of resistance at the twist of a knob. With 18 “clicks” between the hardest and softest settings on the adjustment knob , there is no shortage of tunability. The Ohlins name is also synonymous with quality, so you know that you are buying a product that will be reliable and long-lasting.
