does the bike feel more stable and help you achieve better line going through corners with a steering damper (any type) than without one ?
I don't like to borrow from another forum but on this topic I feel the need to. I am not trying to stir up controversy here, but trying to offer the best advice we as riders can receive and ultimately make our riding experience the best it can be....
That being said you DO NOT need a damper...... Please read the comments from this post on another 600RR forum. I tend to agree with him, just my opinion.
Read Jeff's posts closely....he races and I am sure is expreienced enough to speak on this topic.
Keep the shiny side up!!!!!

for racing its a different story ...
make sure you have quality gear and a good set of tires before you laydown the money for a damper.
as in the linked thread, most of the wobbles, etc; are caused or made worse by the rider ... the bike WILL correct it self very quickly if you let it.
