    how important would a steering damper be on a R6 kevin? or are 954rrs notorious for getting into tank slapper

    I kinda think they're necessary on just about any modern sportbike, They get nasty when accelerating hard over ripples or bumps while straight up n' down or leaned over slightly. The chute onto the straight at Race City is particularly bad, I've left some 100ft long "black snakes" onto the straightaway when I rode without a damper. Luckily I've never crashed from one, but I know more than a few guys that have.

    The R6's arent bad stock but the 954's are kinda well known for having extreme front end geometry, some roadracing friends have them and all of them ended up getting a damper after a couple of weeks following Sphincter-loosening moments..

    haha


    who makes some good ones for the R6 or are they fairly generic. Only name that comes to my mind is ohlins.


    never ridden a bike with a damper though, does it effect low speed manuverability much or does steering just require a little more muscle.

    Generally they're adjustable so you can have as much or as little resistance as you like. I usually run mine around 50-70% of the adjustment, and the only time I really notice it is in the left-right-left (or right-left-right ) flicks, it needs a little more muscle.
    Definately won't hurt on the street!

    I don't know if a person needs to spend the big bucks to get an Ohlins or Scotts, I've had good luck with the low buck Daytona ones in the past. Not nearly the same Bling-Bling factor tho!
