Before you stick a damper on it, I would suggest you lift the front end of the bike, check to head bearings, fork alignment and wheel bearings.

+1 and also the suspension geometry for you. The bike should be properly setup for you, not how it came from the factory or the previous owner. Fix the cause (properly setup suspension) not the symptom (adding a steering dampener).
