:) simply put, does the CBR929RR have an electronic steering damper? If not, is it worth spending loads on a mechanical one? I dont hammer it much but did have a flappy head moment not long ago when pushing hard out of a corner! Also does anyone know which dampers offers best performance for best (lowest) price? Big UK Cheers in advance!

No the 929 does not have a electronic damper as standard, just get a normal mechanical one, chose a good brand one, ohlins, sprint, etc, you can normally pick them up on ebay for about £150, with fitting kit.

Hi, yes the sprint 954 damper and fitting kit I bought fitted straight on no probs, bought it on ebay for £150. works a treat, already had to test it out when I accelerated a bit too hard over a gravely road, totally kept me under control. Its a great purchase for the 929 in my opinion.

Cheers.

You brought a sprint with a 954 fitting? I bought a 929 fitting hoping it would fit my 954 blade but it doesn't. would you consider swapping the fitting kit as i think the tank connector is slightly different. Let me know either way so's i can sought it. cheers. If you think me cheeky, just ignore me.

i just bought the sprint damper kit, i must say makes the front feel much more stable and gives more confidence. Didn't no if it would be worth it, but after my first ride out with it this morning im sure will be well worth the money. :eyebrows:
