hyperpro dampners, active or non

are the active type really better, or are the traditional type just as good? The active type seem real cool, I just don't want to buy if the reg. type are just as good.

Personal choice I guess more than anything. I have the RSC and love it, but then again I can't compare it to the CSC 'cuz I never had one. If your spending this kind of money on a damper why not spend the extra and get the active type I say. The thing plain works wonderfully though so I guess I'm sayin' get the RSC and just set it and forget it!!

BIKES IS GOOD.

i have the rsc but have not tried the csc either... i like the one i have and thought about 2 seconds about the csc...i spent too much money to have the best bike not to get the best of the hyperpro series...maybe someone with a csc will post up so you can get your comparo...

rsc hyperpro

Hi I put the rsc hyperpro on my 10 about two weeks ago..it's ok...quality is good...honestly I don't think it's the best out there..I actually think there is little difference in feel from csc to rsc (maybe just a gimmick but I'm no expert) I run mine in the lower numbers on the street as it takes away a little from the overall steering feeling away....just my 2 cents worth..although you really do need a steering damper on this bike more than most ....I too have had the tankslapper from hell with-in the first 80 miles from new....ride safe ..steve

thanks for the input, I hope someone w/ a csc will post. I just didn't want to fall for a gimmick. I'm wondering what the mechanical diffs are. How does the RSC stiffen up at more stress? I guess the mechanics of it are what I wonder about.

I'm not sure why you feel reactive dampers are a gimmick. Almost all damper manufacturers are going this route. Even the stock Honda damper is active. The reason seems obvious to me: Reactive types give you the best of both worlds. Virtually no interference when maneuvering, but loads of damping upon sharp steering inputs. I can't imagine why you wouldn't want that.

I have the CSC and love it, I'm old fashioned I guess I like to be able to set it how I want it, I'm not a big fan of anything "automatic" although I'm sure the reactive type are great.

As I stated I'm no expert....my only beef with the Rsc damper is it feels no different from an old ohlins damper I use to have on my race bike a few years back...you turn the dial and it's gets stiffer!!!!...now if it was truly re-active I could have it set nice and free and when needed it would kick in?....anyway I'm no expert just my opinion where in the land of cyber loons should be taken with a pinch of salt...I'm not putting down the rsc just saying it's ok but not really any different from any other type of damper out there....steve
