    Performance Dumper

    Hi all,

    I want to ask those tech guys here if you know more about this Japanese Yamaha's genuine optional part called Performance Dumper that will be released in early May 2019.
    It basically gives the bike less vibration and make it sturdier. That's all I know.

    This YouTube video is about a different product that has different name, but what it does is the same, I believe.
    Even you don't speak Japanese, you get the idea by watching this video.


    BTW, the price is around US$300.

    I think that would be "damper", and it looks like it was designed for small bikes and scooters that get overloaded and ridden aggressively, which causes the frame to flex. Not much use on our bikes...

    Well, the Chinese (I'm guessing) web page shows the item mounted on an 09. Don't understand what it's for or how it would work.

    Oh, I just looked at the video. Yeah, the *Japanese* Yamaha page does show the unit on the 900's. Maybe it gets rid of some buzziness, but I'm not going to be the first to spend money on it to find out...

    Translated through Google:

    "A motorcycle-only version of the well-established "Performance Damper" mounted on four-wheeled high-performance vehicles.
    A vehicle-specific vehicle vibration control damper that suppresses vibration, improves ride comfort and handling, and is more effective in touring and long distance travel.
    Use the dedicated stay and collars on the right side of the body frame."

    If you want Goldwing smooth, buy a Goldwing. These bikes are what they are.

    I don't get why people make these statements. The same can be used for so many things "If you want cruise control, buy a cruiser", "If you want a windscreen, buy an FJ09", "If you want the bike to go faster, buy a litre bike" Everyone has their reasons for purchasing a specific bike and they also have their reasons for modifying it a certain way.

    I have no idea if this new product is of any value but if it really dampens movement effectively I could see this improving the overall suspension, making it not work as hard. I really have my doubts though.

    Well, that video says to me is that sr400, xt250 and xmax owners have bought poorly designed and badly specced bikes that need additional bracing to prevent terminal frame flex.
    Bit of an own goal there Yamaha!

    The best part is where its mounted on the 900 frame. That is hilarious.
