i get a couple wobbles every lap going around my local track. nothing real scary yet though. mostly because of inconsistencies in the track and suspension not properly dialed in yet(close though).The only time I ever get any front end wiggle is the turn 8 transition at Loudon.
well you could take my sv race bike out and ride it on the street for years and enver need a damper. It's how you ride.It's not really a question of where or how you ride the bike. More important is how it's set up. If it's set up like a race bike, with the rear jacked up and the front lowered, then you may need a damper. Rubber plays a role too, race tires are less stable in a straight line than street tires.
IMO, if you're racing you need a good damper. If you're on the street, but with a racing-oriented setup, or doing track days a DougZ bracket with a GSXR damper makes a lot of sense.
Rich: Thanks for the shout...much appreciated.
Raab: This is how my damper mount attaches the stock gsxr style damper to the bike( thanks to Mav for the site pics):
Thanks for the pics guys. Man I just sold mine. Didn't know it was so easy. Just buy a bracket and you're done.Here's a pic of mine. I commute about 45 miles each way to work and back (about 90 miles each commute), so the extra stability on the highway is appreciated.
