Ordered steering Damper and Bar ends

Just placed an order for M4R Matris Damper with Oncycles.com
and
Bar Ends from https://www.motovationusa.com/mvstore/


After ride last night, I am convinced that damper is required for Brutale 910,
My plan is to soften up suspension for the street and raise the rear a bit but Damper will keep things in check.

Vibrtion is lot stronger then 750, so I hope barends will help things a bit.

Next thing I amgoing to order is mirrrors....

i'm amazed that you became convinced about the need for a dampener while riding bike during break in

I have thought a dampener would be a good idea. I quick run through the gears definetely gets the front end a little twitchy, especially over rough roads. I sometimes could use a stronger grip system for my hands on the handlebars as well.

I put a Matris damper on my 910R a while back and am really happy with the difference under hard acceleration. This bike accelerates so hard that the front can get a little twitchy.

The Matris has 18 settings and I'm running it on 6 for street use. I don't notice any effect at low speeds.

Great purchase and very easy to install.

They have some cool stuff.... those bar ends sound great and they offer another alternative in frame sliders.

I have also just ordered the Matris M4R damper from emotouk for my bike when it arrives in December. The damper is on it's way as I write this reply, my wife will also be ordering the Rizoma bar ends for fathers day for me, apparently.
