    I perfected my hdpe steering damper bushing.
    Sold all my Goped's that had these on em, so I had to make one for my Goped's I kept.

    If you ever have problems with wobbly steering or just want a basically free steering damper for a bike or moped or goped, I replace my top headset bearing with a piece of HDPE plastic (cutting board). The top headset bearing is not load bearing, it just holds the headset fork tube centered.
    I cut it first with a hole saw (2 blades in it) then heat up the races and melt the hdpe into the shape of the races. Trim it down and you're ready to go.
    Lube it up and install.

    It's awesome. Resists steering as much as you like depending how tight you like by tightening or loosening. Will prevent speed wobbles at high speeds and allow a looser grip on the bars with keeping steering stability.

    Figgrd I'd show this mod since it's super easy and really works well
