Although I only do basic sport flying, I was wondering how often I should replace the head dampers? The dampers that are currently installed are over 18 months old (black 80°).

Move the main blades by hand and if you feel them kind of loose then change the dampers.

Should there be some resistance felt?

The feathering shaft should be snugg on the dampers.... Therefore by moving the blade grips up and down you should not feel any play. You can grab a grip in each hand and wiggle one up and the other down to check for play/slop. Once you begin to feel that slop its time to change them
