Put it on!!
One of the reviews of the Attack Performance Gixxer 1000 referred to the telemetry equipment on the bike. On the computer, it showed that the bikes front end was an inch or two off the ground for several long sections as speed increased. This occurs on the street as well. Not really a wheelie per say, but when the front is light enough, the intermittent contact with the ground can cause a tank slapper, especially if during a transition from left to right.
I've felt the front end skipping/skimming along and the steering dampner definitely helps to keep things straight.
The Gixxer, the last remaining tie to track days of lore.
