My 600 bandit handles like S*it on the twisties how do i Cheaply improve the front end . I have upgraded the rear shock to a 1200 bandit item which has helped a lot.
Also can any one recomend a steering damper to stop the tank slappers that i get on bumpy corners

Try race tech, they'll help with a re-valve for your forks.

as far as a steering damper goes, I've never had stability problems with the 1200 bandit, but I'm sure you won't have a problem finding one.

Build a man a fire, and he is warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he is warm for the rest of his life.

Everything I know I learned from killing smart people and eating their brains.

Cheers I have aquired a set of uprated springs for the forks. Progressive Suspension Brand and put 20 grade oil in.and the front seems much firmer . All i need now is some good weather to take the bike out for a good test run
