Yamaha YFZ 450 Elka System 5 Steering Damper


Elka Suspension is proud to announce the launch of a next-generation line of steering dampers that offers an unprecedented level of adjustability and performance. This project, which has been in the works for the last two years, has finally reached the final stage of development and testing in real-world racing applications.

The System 5 steering damper is second to none in terms of adjustability, providing five different adjustments: high-speed damping, low-speed damping, return to center damping, angle between straight or cornering and cornering damping level. All these adjustments allow a rider to fine-tune the steering damper to his riding style, helping him when needed without requiring unnecessary effort by removing vibration over choppy terrain, reducing arm pumping and rider fatigue. It also increases control over obstacles and helps reduce lap times.

They will be offered as a lower mount rotary damper for the following ATV models: Honda TRX450R and TRX400EX, the Yamaha YFZ450, the Suzuki LT-R450 and LTZ400, the Kawasaki KFX400 and the Arctic Cat DVX400.

Features System 5 Damper

  • High and Low Speed Adjustment ( adjusts the resistance separatley for when you turn the handlebar quickly or slowly so that the steering damper works for you not against you)

  • Return to Centre Damping Adjustment ( allows the rider to have full damping when the handle bar returns to centre or reduces the damping so that vehicle hold its line)

  • Conering Angle Adjustment ( adjusts the angle of the transition (four preset positions) between the damping stage for going straight and the damping stage for cornering)

  • Conering Damping Level Adjustment ( allows reduction of the damping level for the cornering stage so that there's less resistance when you dontneed the damper to work against you)
