Re: 929 Steering Damper ??????
I have a 2001 929 that I just acquired a few months ago. It's winter here where I live. So, I haven't really had a chance to ride it much, yet. But in anticipation of having the head shaking the 929 seems to be famous for, I installed a Scotts damper. I did a lot of research on-line before making Scotts the choice. The GPR seems to get okay ratings, too; but a number of riders reported oil leak problems with the GPR. The Scotts also has adjustments for low speed, high speed and total swing.
We had a warmer day last week and I got the bike out for a couple of hours. I don't really know how the bike would have handled without the damper, but I can say that the Scotts seemed to work really well. I also have a CBR 600 F4i and the 929 felt more stable than the 600. So much so, that I ordered another damper for the 600.
The Scotts is also a very easy install. It takes about a half an hour. These things are expensive, but seem a quality product. I know not much help; just giving my two cents. I am happy with the Scotts.
