I need your help!

The wife laid down the law. I have to make a decision. As part of my Fathers day present I was told I could have;

1. Gore-Tex Fly fishing jacket
2. Scotts Damper
3. YZ seat, Clark tank, shrouds and graphics

What do you think?

Thanks!

JJ

I would say the seat and tank. The improvement in cornering is awesome.

The dampner is also good for reducing arm pump.

Tough decision.......Good Luck!

Well the gortex fly fishing jacket is out the window, but If I had my option Id go for the dampner. I think it makes riding easier than the seat tank combo. PLUS YOU GET TO SPEND MORE MONEY! :)

Easy decision for me.

Scotts Damper!

Before I got mine, I got TERRIBLE arm pump at Rampart. Lots of BIG whoops. It's like riding the whooped part of an MX track for miles and miles. I had to stop every 15 or 20 minutes and I had cronic elbow pain. After I got the damper, no more arm pump EVER.

But I'm tall and don't think the YZ seat tank would benefit me much anyway. I can barely get all the way up on the stock seat. When I do, my knee that is still on the peg is all jammed up.

So, I guess it depends on what kind of terrain you ride, whether or not you get arm pump, and whether or not you feel you can't turn the bike with the stock seat and tank.

My moto: Increased fun factor is priority #1. The damper greatly increases the fun factor of riding by reducing the pain.

Dude! I just bought my first DVD player. It is awesome! I would recommend one of those too!

Probably right after the Steering Damper.

How about down-link satellite internet access? With that and a laptop you'll be set.

Don't listen to those Colorado guys. Didn't you hear they get a kickback from Scotts on every dampner that is sold through this websight?? :)

Ha!

It does sound that way doesn't it Kevin? :)

I feel like such a slime ball.

Truth be told: A friend that I ride with, KerryT, doesn't have a damper and he gets horific arm pump during every ride. I keep telling him to drop the $400 and fix the problem but he doesn't believe me either. He thinks I get a kickback from Scotts too I'm sure.

JJ,
I've got the YZ seat/tank - get the dampener, I'm going to. The dampener will benefit ALL riding conditions, the seat/tank combo is more selective to your riding style & terrain.

I've got the seat/tank. I stand a lot so I'm not seeing a big difference in handling. I will say that the IMS seat is mucho more comfortable than stock. As I don't have the dampner that's what I think you should get. Then you can tell all of us without how we need one too. :-)

It's a conspiracy, a conspiracy I tell you!! I can see another civil war unleashing over this dampener thing!

One thing I have found in life when it comes to women/wives: It is easier to get forgiveness than permission...

Kevin,
I've only been married since Oct last year - I'm finding either to be a real pain :)
