Default RTT Steering Damper

I bought an RTT Steering damper about 6 months ago. It comes with a new top triple clamp into which it is integrated. It also has a remote thumb control that can be sited near the grips so you can easily change the amount of damping while riding. The unit is a free to centralise type.

There were various horror stories about the seals not working well and units leaking. I spoke to RTT about this and they said the design had been changed and the problem cured. I have had no problem so far.

So far mine works great and I really love it. The thumb control is the icing on the cake - you can adjust the damping as the terrain changes. The undamped centralising makes the steering retain a light feel whilst having a good amount of deflection control. It feels so much better than the GPR2 unit which I am also familiar with. Looks very neat integrated into the clamp too.

I didn't know what the RTT steering damper looked like, so I found a pic on their product page. I attached it below for reference.

How is the fit with the gas tank?
Any issues removing the gas tank (such as having to rotate the steering damper post)?

Yes, you have to rotate the post unfortunately to get at the tank bolt. I had heard the same problem exists with some other dampers and I guess your question confirms that.
