    Steering Damper ????

    I recently got an 07 RSV r haven't really had time or weather to ride it yet just wondered if anyone has an opinion on weather or not to get a steering damper as this model doesn't have one standard and the factory does. What you reckon.

    If you ride flat out on twisty back roads a damper is a good thing to have! my factory starts to tank slap now and again when nailing it on bumpy back roads and the damper makes it stable pretty quick!

    As big bazz says, it all depends how hard you push your bike ... if you just do a gentle 30 miles every other wkend then i'd say no. if you tend to get a little carried away every wkend then yes, definately a worthwhile investment. on track - a must i think !
