    i saw that too.......i've heard of toby, good quality from what i've seen.......try to get a web site on the damper so you can get more info on it, like adjustability and so forth. i don't think i'd pay more than $100-$125 for it though.


    EDIT: they sell for about $250-$300, have 19 way adjustment and are supposed to be the lightest available. they are also fully rebuildable.. here's a link http://www.newportcycleparts.com/cat...ng_dampers.htm

            I've never heard of a dampener.

            Ok.........just kidding. The Toby are fine but won't replace an Ohlins DAMPER quality wise.

              I guess that was what I wanted to know. At the $270 that kevh stated I would think most people would buy an Ohlins. I thought maybe they were a budget item or something.

              Damn spelling... You learn something new everyday. I guess I never paid attention to the spelling of it. I just assumed it would be the dictionary usage.

              "Damper" - being confused, bewildered, or shocked.
              "Dampener" - to check or diminish the activity or vigor of.

              From now on I'll use the correct term.

                Toby makes a nice product. Any LP Dealer will have them for you.

                    I have been using a Toby damper for about 2.5 years. Works great on the street and fine on the track. I would prefer a speed sensitive damper, like Extreme Tech, on the track. But anything is better than the stock crap. There is plenty of adjustment with the Toby. The TLR and TLS Toby models are the same. I actually have one for a TLS, so the sticker is upside down when installed.
                    Common sense is not very common.

                      OK it went for $96. Who here won it? I forgot about the damn auction and by the time I checked it had ended. For $96 I would say someone got a good buy.
