So do we have instructions (for those of us willing to do that ourselves) of rebuilding it.
Commercial adds should be clearly presented as such. Somehow not so familiar to a contributing in a forum and offering to to do something against money instead of helping by giving advice how to do it. The price is modest compared to a price of new - admit that. Still the idea of this forum (I hope) is to help each others - not cash.
This is copied from post # 15 of a thread titled "steering damper help needed" (op was ltlfeat) Apr 10, 2012. Should help a little.
( I don't believe that the Steering damper does very much on the LT unless you have mechanical problems,....
or you like to ride without your hands on the grips. I don't recommend either.
When I got my LT, the damper had leaked, and wasn't working so much...So...
I performed a "re-seal & re-service" with info from here = http://www.bmwlt.net/ubbthreads/sho...d&sb=5&o=0&vc=1
And here = http://www.r1150r.org/board/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=14103
I Got my parts from Metric Seals Inc. Part # QHWA10-20-7/8.5 (S 10x20x7/8.5)
$ 21.50 each + shipping. http://www.metric-seals.com/
I first used 10 W fork oil, but I found it to make the damper go to "stiff" mode too easily.
So....I did the service over, this time using 5 W fork oil to very good effect !
It still leaks some, so I just keep it wiped down.
Good luck to you ! )
