I wish to change the standard black rotorhead dampers which came with my SE for some stiffer ones. Are there any available as an upgrade, thanks.

Does anyone know the Shore Hardness of the stock “O’Rings? I do urethane casting and I though of making a mold to cast not an o-ring but a complete bushing to fit in the head. Any thoughts?

I read somewhere that people had used fuel tubing instead of the o-rings. You could probably cut a urethane bushing pretty easily, but does the o-ring itself compress, or does it deform first? If that's the case you may need a round cross section to give extra room in the head. I've also wondered if you could just add an extra o-ring per side. It would compress a lot when tightened down that way ....

What's the purpose of the damping anyway? Would solid be real bad?

home made dampers
I use silicone fuel tubing - cut longer and with a flat washer these will squeeze up to increase damping - cut shorter and the opposite of course - works a treat - infinitely adjustable and cost nothing!

two pumps and a squirt

This looks real cool, who knows if it works? Trextuning.com is doing a review soon.
