YZ seat of Scotts Damper what do you think?

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?

The dampner is also good for reducing arm pump.
Tough decision.......Good Luck!

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.

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??
99 WR, all YZ mods, de-octopused, OEM YZ tank and seat, jetting by Clark.
For clarification: WE'LL be having a KICK ASS time in Moab!! Right Mitchy & Bill?!!

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.

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