In 1990, Michel Toby developed an all new concept in motocycle steering dampers, he studied and applied all the latest engineering technology. He was the first on the market to design kits suitable for all motcycles, to be used both on the road and track for competition.
Toby steering dampers have the same advanced technology used in the Standard models as is used in the Titanium race dampers. The racing Titanium is currently the lightest steering damper on the market. Toby exports its products to a lot of countries wolwide. Michel Toby never stops striving to improve on his already Market leading products. Toby steering dampers are manufactured with an expansion reservoir, to house the oil which expands when the friction generates heat in use.The expanding oil moves into the reservoir with the heat and returns into the damper body as it cools automatically. The bodies of the steering dampers are made from aeronautic grade aluminium ( AL7075) and are rearned to a tolerance of 5 micron. Polished after machiningg to a high gloss to reduce friction. The body is then anodised in an assortment of colours. The steering dampers rods are made from CK45 steel and finished to a close tolerance. The ball joints are manufactured in Japan for Toby, all self lubing without the need for gease nipples.
The fork clamp, damper mountings and body straps are all machined from aeronautic billet aluminium and all pieces are machined before anodising. All parts of steering damper kit are manufactured in Toby workshops on CNC MORI SEIKI machining center to a hih tolerance.
