I got that crazy Honda HESD electronic one. It's great never come close to a tank slapper and I have needed it on several occassions. It's a little too stiff sometimes at speed though. I would like to get the Honda Power Commander because you can also adjust the HESD with it.

dnyce sweet, thx- i think the style and quality look better than your usual cookie cutter rotary imo-but the thing has to work, and work great, and i hadnt heard of any1 using them.

mason Dnyce, the Hyper pro is a great stearing damper. I've used it on a race bike before and had no problems.
10-10-2007 11:30 PM
dnyce what do you guys think of the hyperpro rsc linear dampner?

tightening the damper sometimes hides problems with the steering (which eventually gets worse over time).

It did on my buddies 2002 (maybe 2003, which ever year dumb ass honda tried tappered roller bearings in the neck) 954RR. BAD BAD BAD tank slapping at 130mph+ I had it happen to me and damn near **** myself.

Back _Marker the stock damper on the 750 works really good for the street. i've tested it a few times. when i had an adjustable, i kept it almost to the loosest setting and never changed it. i don't like having tight steering.

Shags71 I thought so but just wanted to make sure. It's all good.
