Default MV's rotary damper

Hi. I'd like to know everybody's opinion on MV's corse rotary damper, also called 'pista' by some. The reason I'm not going Ohlins is because it's way too large and is painted gold which just doesn't work with a black 1078. MV's offering looks nice but I've heard bad things about those such as them breaking. Don't really like the look of piston-type dampers so looking for a rotary type for riding rougher roads (front wheel going out of control on bumps and rails is annoying).

I believe it is a rebranded GPR damper. But I don't know if there are any other changes to it, nor have I used one.

HTH.

Hey Buck, choice is yours

...but I remember reading an article which quoted Claudio Castiglioni or Tamburini stating that they didn't believe in them and said the combination of Marzocchi and frame design/balance should negate any add-on damping requirements ....(or words to that effect )

Hmm well I didn't know that. It handles exceptionally well that's for sure, and if the damper is going to interfere with that in any way then that'll be bad.
However they said that and then stuck their own damper onto a 1090? Why would they do that then.

Good question Buck, not entirely sure....

I'm sure the comments I refer too were made by Tamburini, (in reference to CC during an interview), I just can't find the bloody thing though ;-)

Didn't know about F4s either. Oh well! Seems like some damper is the way to go.
Piston dampers may work great but something in the way they look rubs me the wrong way.
While searching around for info about GPR dampers I came across a thread somewhere where people were pouring shit over each other because one guy said that GPR dampers were inherently better than Ohlins rotaries because Ohlins have to convert rotation into linear motion or whatever. It's a blessing we don't do this kind of pointless wars over here, really.
