Steering damper
« on: July 26, 2012, 02:06:51 PM »
Just got sidecar attached to G5 and definitely need a steering damper for wobble.  VW bug steering dampers are commonly used - anyone  know what the  measurement is from closed to full extension for  them?   Looks like  i need 10" travel for maximum steering flexibility.   Thanks, Al

Installed vw bug steering damper and it made a huge improvement - no more wobble at any speed.  Attached to sidecar frame and a bracket mounted at top of forks just below headlight.
