I'm glad you asked, I thought that viscous dampers were/are mounted to the end of crank shafts to reduce vibrations!!

If I'm going to hell, I'll go on a Buell

Sorry, a viscous damper replaces the harmonic balancer and dampens vibration at all frequencies making the engine smoother and the valvetrain work better. Underdriving the accessories will account for approximately 4-5% horsepower at the rear wheels, overdriving would be for supercharged applications.

That's the plan, to make the system modular so you can change pulleys
