    Damper advice?

    Now then folks,
    My Mille doesn't have a damper, I ride on tracks and road and have suffered a mahoosive tank skipper on a previous bike with no damper. My blades had em fitted after that and never a problem.
    My issue being, I now can't afford an ohlins, two questions
    - Is there any issue with the standard Aprilia damper ( the old red one ) any comments?
    - I know people slag em off, but has anyone any actual experience of these Chinese dampers. Had one on my old race bike and it was fine to be fair, but it was also relatively low bhp. Any comments?

    Can only spend about 60.

    Thanks in advance.

    Got the standard red one. Couldn't afford the extra and if the standard works, that's all I need. Thanks for the advice
