DRAG SPECIALTIES Janesville, Wisconsin, USA Tel: 608 758 1111 Constant Safety Control steering dampers Internationally well known for their sportbike and streetbike suspensions, Dutch specialist Hyperpro has had Harley- Davidson (and more recently Indian Motorcycle) model-specific suspension applications in its line-up ever since the company began in business in 1993. Their range includes stock replacement and performance upgrade rear shock absorbers and rising rate/progressively wound shock absorber springs, front suspension springs, full front end suspension kits and one of the best known and most widely used steering damper programs in the market. Stock replacement and performance upgrade rising rate front and rear suspension springs are where the company started, and they are still a major part of their business. In 1998 the company launched a steering damper design that has 40 AMERICAN MOTORCYCLE DEALER - JANUARY 2018 gone on to be a signature product. “The idea behind our damper is that slow movements of the handlebar should not be felt,” says Sales & Marketing VP Jan Belder. “As soon as the handlebar starts shaking, a well designed steering damper should keep the motorcycle in line to avoid tank slappers.” Hyperpro CSC (Constant Safety Control) steering dampers are available for selected Sportster, Dyna, Touring, VRSC, XR and Street models. The company also manufactures their own fully CNC-milled mounting kits. They are fully adjustable, with damping adjusted in 22 positions; fully rebuildable with spare parts always available; fitted with high quality bearings and have a low friction design due to the use of a one-piece 8mm piston rod and Diamond-like carbon (DLC) special surface treatment. This results in perfect alignment through the slide bearings and no excessive force on the piston. Additional features include triple function seals, dust scraper and double oil seal, and nitrogen pressurized heat expansion reservoir – gas pressure prevents against foaming. The company has 25 employees, a 10,000 sq ft (1,000 sq m) facility at Werkendam in southern Holland, and is exporting to more than 40 countries around the world.
