Has anyone tried one of these Scotts steering dampners? I would love to know if they are all that before I get off my wallet and pay for one. I am either going with one of these or a conventional hyperpro damnper, so input on either wouldbe appreciated.
by the way this is a great site, defenitely in the favorites.

When I put a Scott's Dampner on my 00 R1, it was like an entirely different bike. It made it handle so solid and stable in turns that I had flashbacks of my RC-51, except the R1 wasn't slow, uncomfortable and heavy.
I will never ride an R1 without a Scott's Dampner. The key is to crank it up pretty high. Adjust it all the way tight then back off about 6 clicks. You will be amazed. I hate that I have to wait for an 02 mounting kit, which probably won't be done by Bikeweek.
Go for it,
I love my scott's, I rode a buddy's Duck with an Ohlins, and it was a little difficult to steer, Of course that is because he had it cranked up pretty well because he is way faster than I am. The scotts in my opinion would be better for street riding. Just my opinion.

the scoots is used by the yamaha american racing team,so i guess its good for race too :)
just be carefull with the anodizing...it fades fast if you use the wrong soaps on it.
