Hi. I’m trying to build up a steering damper like the one in the photo below but I’m struggling to understand a couple of things. I was wondering if anyone has an original one?
Problem 1: I can’t work out if the barrel-shaped spacer goes above or below the big nut with a hole in that attaches the upper yoke to the fork stem.
Problem 2: Does the spring go above the big nut with the hole in or ‘inside’ it so that it’s held in place with one of the small nuts? Problem 3: The hole in the star-shaped spring is larger than the small boss on the underside of the bent plate so it can move around. I don’t have the part that’s shown in the photo directly below the spring. It looks like it’s some kind of spacer - does anyone know what it is and what it’s supposed to do? Is that the part that’s supposed to keep the star spring centralised,
The chrome spacer at the top goes on top of the fork crown nut so the damper knob is clear of the bars, the coil spring goes inside the crown nut. The hex nut on the rod stops the upper spring from falling down and helps tension the knob. Is the washer under the star spring stepped to locate it? There should also be a nut 5/16 bscy below the yoke torque bar to lock it up,the torque bar will be threaded
