I need some good advice. I am going to purchase a steering damper for the 05 this year. What is a good one to buy? Does the old saying-you get what you ay for hold true? How many bills am I looking at?

For me it was all about the Scott's. Hell of a damper from what I have read. But now I am looking at the HyperPro Active damper. Kinda reminds me of the Honda Electronic Steering Damper (H.E.S.D.) but it is a non-rotary style. Either one of these dampers will run you around 440 or so plus shipping. PM me if you want a link of where I have been eyeballing them at these prices.

i have a scotts on my bike, works great and looks really good in my opinion, if you live in a high theft area i hear they are easier to take off the bike in comparison to an ohlins because its pretty much only like 8 little screws to take it off.. still not a 1 minute job but something to think about

I've got a GPR and a aftermarket Ohlins for sale

And to be honest I would say the Scott's, thats what im getting for my race bike, but I've had Hyperpro suspension stuff before and it was top notch stuff, so I'm sure there damper would be just as good.

The GPR is great for street because you can just look down and know exactly where its set, unlike the Ohlins although stick dampers have less cavitation then rotary. Not that it much matters on the street, most are pretty good.
