    NHK ODM 3000 E is the family of Damper I'm playing around with. I finally had a chance to get out and ride since my exhaust came back. I wish I could say... WOW WHAT A DIFFERENCE.

    I rode with set at full tight, 4 clicks in, and 0 clicks in (7 total positions, 6 clicks). Full loose to full tight you can feel A difference, but not overly so as to be obtrusive.

    At low speed it's no impediment, handles just like before, or 95% as before. I did set out to test it a bit, no speed wobbles occurred in areas I've had them before at full throttle. I charged a wide bridge gap on the freeway I normally slow for and it was the least eventful thing ever?!

    So either the dampers doing it's job perfectly and in a way that's not intrusive or the laws of physics have changed lmao.

    10/10 recommend, just don't expect any benefit if your bike wasn't getting a little squirly before adding it.

    The "laws" of physics change all the time. The underlying reality - ah now that is just what it is - reality.
