Cost is the only thing I can think of... many a sportbike do not have steering dampers.Pigface1 said:I can't think of any reason NOT to have one. . ?

Anything Ohlins is good! They just make some of the best stuff. However, the number one great thing about the Scotts is no drilling holes, no damage to the stabalizer in about any and every crash.Mojo said:Rotary dampers are nice. I had a Scotts on my RC51. My Aprilia is Ohlins equipped, and I have to say that I do like it a bit better.
All the same, for me, the best reasons to have one would be the crash damage I sustained when my old TL1000R had a tank slapper on the freeway..
You may be right...I've never heard that idea, but they definately look alot alike. Either way, I love the idea of the rotary style and it works great! :cheers:Big Kahuna said:Actually, Scotts dampers are made by Ohlins.
I think Scotts just makes the mounting hardware and re-packages the damper as Ohlins only sells their rotary dampers for off road use.
