the damper isn't the problem if you get headshake...its something else...

the damper just masks the problem.

You need to check your suspension settings and be sure not to grip the bars tight.

I agree with ya Hill and want to add that the stock Ohlins is somewhat junk because it is built per Kaw. specs. The aftermarket Ohlins are a hell of alot better and are considered one of the best. I'm wondering if one could send the stock damper to Ohlins and have it built back to their specs and what the cost would be.

You do need to sort out the suspension to match your weight and riding style. Do a search because there is plenty of threads about setting the sag and stuff.
