Re: Steering stabilizer
I have a Scotts damper on my and I can't say that I notice anything at all other than no more oscillations, which is what I bought it for. The thing I like about the Scott's is it has quite a bit of adjustability and can be dialed in pretty easily while riding if needed.
I think the only downside of the HESD is what Sky said, and we also saw that in the event that someone damages the ignition, as in an attempt to steal, it can also mess up the system.
The main concern that I've heard with the yoke mounted systems like the GPR or Scott's is that they are not as effective as the piston types like the Ohlins. Having only used the yoke style, I can't say one way or another.
