I need a Cheap steering damper

hey guys-my first race is it Tally the 19

I'm trying to get my bike ready- whats a cheap solution for this?

I saw a while back where someone posted something about taking a stock GSXR damper and buying a 41mm clamp for it-anyone know hwta i'm talking about or where i can find it?

Is there some cheap universal one somewhere?
btw-this is for WERA

Unless it is mandated, you really don't need a damper on an SV.

http://www.axljak.com/Billet%20Parts%20-%20Suzuki.htm sells side mount brackets, maybe go with a cheap damper initially.

Get one of those fork clamps and then get a GSXR steering damper from eBay for $10. Make a bracket to mount the body to the frame:

I've got one of these: www.brgracing.com/svSteering.html

Coupled with a cheap (LP) 90mm steering damper, the whole set-up is less than 200 bucks.

It's an easy install and looks very clean.

I can't find either of those products on denniskirk.com. That is the worst organization of a retail website ever. Do you have the part numbers?
