WR steering Dampner
Posted December 08, 2008 - 08:27 PM
I hear some guys say that the WRs are stable and don't headshake and therfore don't need a streering dampner. My reason for shopping for one is I ride eastern style, rocky, tree root, tight trail. I thought the dampner might take that jolt out of sharp impacts. Am I mis-informed? I am considering several mods for rough terrain riding and to dampner was going to be first, but I'd welcome your opinions. New bike is an 07 WR 450. Thanks.

A stabilizer will defiantly help out a lot. It will allow you to go faster. I tend to notice it most at the end of the day and im tired and i make the most mistakes and it kicks in and saves me...be warned...once you ride with it you will never ride with out one:thumbsup:
as for which one...well that is like asking which girl is hotter....you will always get a different answer!
I have only used a GPR and i love mine...

When I bought my WR I made them order a scotts damper mount kit and roll it into the loan... thats how much I love mine. I've seriously never rode my WR without it (other than a few loops around the yard.)
