    Are the aftermarket steering dampers that much better to be worth upgrading?

    No.. ask me how I know..? a clue, my bank account is a little lighter than it was with the OE damper...  :164: :008:

    Just put my order in for hyperpro. Looking forward to trying it out. Ohlins was too expensive, this hyperpro was border line. Last year front was too twitchy on high acceleration, guessing this year may be worse.

    Guess you would have installed and tested your new damper... any discernible improvements? Worth the expense?
    Or if anyone else on the forum went down that road and would like to comment?
    Would appreciate your thoughts... thanks
