hey Bryan I know you said you weren't looking to sell, but would you consider it for the people who would play for it? I personally would love to have this kit! Thanks again!
He is selling.

I have purchased a set from him in powdercoated Black - I should have it on hand in a few days. Try and reach him on facebook, it might be quicker.

For you folks installing one of these units, what is your primary (and secondary?) reason to do so? Do you feel there is a mechanical 'need' , something Kawasaki missed, for this unit based upon the bikes' functioning?

In my case, I have been going to the dragstrip alot lately, and I just want reassurance, wobble at 160mph isn't too fun.

Starting to get back to the track and with the extra power added, a damper is a good piece of insurance. I been in a wobble at 156kmh on the track and its scary as fuck. Went i to a small wobble on my sx/se in stock form due to uneven pavement. The bike should have come with one.

For me a steering damper is among the first mods I do to a bike and the reason for that is because I had a fairly bad accident due to death wobble. I know some people will argue that they don’t ride hard enough to need one.

Well I was going 30 mph on a rustic road and crested the top of a hill and somehow upset the front end and started the shake. Next thing you know I wake up in the hospital with a nurse asking me if I know where I am!

I look at the damper as a added layer of safety and when I’m about to do something stupid I just turn that dial up and know the front end is going to be solid.

Got the damper mounted after nearly having a tank slapper the other day (Wasn't even going crazy; speed limit of all things, and a lane change). Thank you for the bracket! Makes a world of difference.
