modded a HESD Steering Stabilizer for the DRZ

Recommended Posts

I machined all the mounts and built a manual electronic controller operated by the rotary pot knob by the throttle, it's the tits for $30 total spent, some fabricating required. :thumbsup: It's a 2007/2010 CBR600RR HESD..... control range 1 volt to about 8V full damp. My DRZ400E is happier now with knobbies at 70 mph and a solid feel on full damp.

Can't get pics to work, here's a link, look down the page those pics work.

how did you mount it on the drz, and what did you use for a post ?

Had to machine off HESD mount flange 1/2 inch so it would sit close to bars, made 2 alum mount plates that clamp inbetween handlebar clamps (machine clamps so mounts fit in) uses ewxisting HESD mount holes on the sides. Made a actuator arm from alum instead of the crappy steel one that came with it, the position pin/ring is a common aftermarket design I copied the only way to do it and still have full bar lock travel, the ring I machined and slotted to clamp on top of the stem with a hardened bolt to connect to the pivot arm. I'll try and get a pic to work up close.
