Rider Testimonies:
"DesertRat": This may be the best thing you can do for a Ural. The accel/decel yaw is almost completely gone. There's just enough to use in the curves. The whole rig feels more stable over bumps and potholes, it doesn't randomly change directions anymore, resulting in a far more confident rider. Sean is first class in customer service. He responded to my query very quickly, and actually shipped within an hour of my payment. His instructions are clear and concise, and left no doubt as to how to install the damper. Order on. You won't regret it.

"markdam": Super easy to install... Great pictograph and text step by step instructions. Reduces fatigue and jolts. Made any shimmy wobble or shake imperceptible. way more "planted " feel at speed.

"Navy TM": I installed one of Seans steering dampers on my Ural Tourist, and have put a little over 2,000 miles on the bike since installing, most of the mileage on the interstate highways traveling to the C.R.A.P. Rally (1600 miles) in Sanford NC. The damper removes about 50% (in my estimation) of the yawl one gets on acceleration and deceleration, plus when hitting unseen road hazards such as potholes the handlebars are not jerked out of ones hands. I am very pleased with the product, installation takes 15 or 20 minutes

"Flattop": I just put one on my 2012 GU, wow what a difference. If you have a friction washer you definitely need to convert to Sean's damper. The acceleration yaw is cut by 90% turning and accelerating (normal turn at slow speed) the yaw is very low and really makes the driving experience better.

"myklt8": Wow, my Ural handles like a sport bike now! Ok that may be a bit of an exaggeration, but it does make a huge difference.
All can say is get one, you will not be disappointed. Thanks Sean

"Lmo": First time out with Sean's damper installed. WHAT A FR'N DIFFERENCE!!! Totally different machine in all speed ranges. I can finally take a hand off the bars to WAVE at other sidecarists.

"URAL CT": Here's my assessment of the sean0262 steering damper. I was totally satisfied with its performance around town. But...I thought the real test would be my trip from Texas towards New Mexico, Colorado & back. A total round trip distance of 4,375 kms & to dispel any doubts, the damper performed admirably throughout the whole trip. Tracked straight & managed the road surface imperfections in a steady manner...solid as expected. What else can I say...it works! Yes folks...this damper is one of the better mods I've done to my 2007 Patrol. Good on ya Sean!

"airkooled": I put Sean's damper on my 2004 Tourist 3 weeks ago. 20 minute install and the best modification that I have ever done.
A whole lot less fatigue, no jerky handles bars on those unexpected pot holes. For the price I believe you can not go wrong. Thanks Sean.

"stagewex": If you have a 2013 or older rig with the friction damper this is like the ephipany of drilling the slides or taking out the cats or adding Modtop free-flow exhaust. It's the first real upgrade I have done in years since adding the new style branch pipes & perch rings. Simple solution but someone actually had to do it. Absolutely worth it. If you have a 2014 and newer it's been pretty apparent from all the complaints that while a nice attempt, the original damper spec'd by IMZ is was a poor choice... just not up to the job. And a somewhat newer style that is similar if not the same as sean's lacks the appropriate hardware to make it work right. If I had a '14,'15' or '16 I'd take him up on his "try it and if you don't like it return it" offer.

If there is any Uralist that lives close to my location (Plainfield, IN) that owns a Retro, Deco or any Ural that is equipped with fork tubes instead of leading links. I will give and install my R3W Steering Damper kit if you allow me to use your rig so I can design a upper damper attachment bracket.

Just a quick shout out to Sean and his outstanding customer service. In swapping one of his dampeners between bikes I somehow managed to misplace, OK lose, the top shock bracket. Sent Sean a note and two days later a uniformed government employee delivered it to my door. Outstanding!!!! Thanks again my friend!

Kudos to Sean on two counts. One for incredibly fast service. I ordered the R3W on Wed. afternoon and received it in PA at 9:30 this morning. Second for an outstanding product. As a bit of background...I bought a 2012 GU GOBI from a member here last September, never even having seen one up close in person. I had no experience in how it would ride or drive, so I thought that how it was , was how it should be. I would pull out of my drive turning left and it would have a severe wobble for 50 yards before it would settle in. Bumps, potholes and rough country roads were a handful to drive on, with constant steering corrections. I figured .."They all do that"....I played with the steering damper knob and hydraulic damper to corrrect the problems but it didn't seem to get much better, unless I had them turned in so tight that I almost couldn't steer.


After seeing the original post , I read up some more on the R3W and considered ordering one. I read Sean's claims and thought he might be "stretching it"..EXCEPT...he offered a full money back guarantee to back up his claims. I installed it today and went for a short 5 mile ride, hitting every bump, pothole ,manhole and rough section I could find and was absolutely amazed by the difference in my bike. His claims are no bull!

Aside from that, he seems to be a really great guy. I called him after my test to tell him just how impressed I was with his damper. We spent a considerable amount of time on the phone talking bikes and cars. He gave me some great tips on doing things to the URAL, willing to take his time to help me , a newcomer to Urals. You couldn't ask for any more from a guy. Thanks again, Sean.

Sean:
Will this damper fit a 2013 Retro ? And would it make a big difference given the congenital from suspension?

Henry, I have not had the opportunity to design a upper bracket on a retro yet. I have been unable to locate anyone close to my location who has one for me to use as a design-bed.

Sean, thank you for getting the steering damper out to me so quickly. It was here in only a couple of days from across the country. I am excited to get it mounted up on my 2014 gear up. I also appreciate your fast response to if I would be able to use it with an ammo box mounted to the drivers side of the tub. That is great news that I can have both the ammo box(moved forward a bit) and the steering damper. The best of both worlds!

Put mine on last night, took a total of maybe 30 minutes with just basic hand tools. Only put 10 miles on it thus far but instantly it gave the feeling of a more stable rig. When accelerating it pulled straight. Leaving Friday on a 2300+ mile trip and when I get back I'll write up an update/review of the R3W Steering Damper.
