Think of a tuning fork. Frame oscillations cause tank slappers, or front tire problems or steering head bearing play, causing oscillations in the fork, like what happens when you hit a tuning fork.
Frequenly occur in racing, not street, situations where you hit a pavement change while accellerating out of a turn or onto a straight. If you have steering head oscillation, first have the head assembly examined by a technician. If it checks out ok, and they also ok the swing arm bearings and f/r axle bearings, THEN consider a steering dampner.
