Okay, I'm interested in purchasing a sterring dampener for a '02 Gixxer 1000, but most companies i look at don't make a 'top-mount'; which is what i want, also there are so many i don't know what is good...Actually i know Ohlins is supposed to be "the best" but i can't justify spending close to $1000(Canadian) to buy the dampener and a bracket to make it a top mount (because the Ohlins comes as a stock replacement). I've looked at nearly every company (Ohlins, Daytona, Hyperpro, Matris, Scott, Harris and the list goes on....), but i don't know how they handle, or if there's any problems with them. The only guys i know that have dampeners, all have Ohlins (cause they race, and they 'think' that Ohlins is the best).
So, I'd like some feedback on the dampeners any of you guys are using....I'd like the dapener to fit these criteria if possible:
2) Rebuildable (did i spell that right?)
3) Top mount, or Tank mount
4) I won't have to sign away my first born to buy it!
