I'm looking for a damper, scotts is a bit pricey but i still prefer rotory style dampers. i like my friends gpr on his r6, works great and looks better (its black, small things count). the only problem is on the gpr website it only lists the damper for 03-04 sv650s not 05 (mine). may sound rediculous cuz the triple didnt change yet i cant get a positive answer from anyone one whether it will fit the 05. i just dont want to get it and for some stupid reason it not fit!

Thanks a lot!

P.s- why has no one considered a gpr before?

I use GPR,and whole our team.it should fit 05 fine.we dont have 05 yet(we do but not set up yet).
maybe they dont list it because they did not try to mount on 05 and are not sure if anything changed,better than assuming it is same and will fit.

Hey, I'll show my ignorance, but what the heck does a steering damper do? Seen em, but have no clue! Is it useful for regular (not race) riding?

It's basically a shock absorber for your steering. Have you heard of a tankslapper? This is an extreme case but you get the idea:

It's one of those "just-in-case" things, probably not the dumbest way to spend money.

Pit Bull also has them now. Theirs has that cool dog on it! ;D

$399 for everything is not the greatest price in the world, but I bet that dog adds 10 hp. ;)
