My total opinion - 99.9% of the time, probably not necessary. The one badly placed pothole or oddly placed hill sneaking up on you that gets a tank slapper going and suddenly the thing is priceless. I justified it as a safety investment; better to never need it and have one rather than need it and not have it. ...had a tank slapper on a duc once and saved it and really don't want to try it again.

I have a Scots and they're a nice quality product.

I grew up on Kawasaki Triples, still ride them, I do agree about your peace of mind theory...anyone think a damper has actually saved them (on a Brute), just interested all opinions welcome

No, they're not. The B4 has altered geometry and ergonomics to the F4--Learn to ride, adjust the suspension, don't use a bandaid.

B4 750S [sold]
B3 675R [waiting]

I have installed one...because I have experimented, sometimes, how the front wheel likes to see to the sky and how the bar shakes in this situation...When the wheel in on the road...it is not necessary at all...the bike is very stable.

Once you have installed the steering damper...your Brute is able to look to the sky safe!

Hate to tell you this but if your front wheel is in the sky it's pretty hard to get a tankslapper from your front end God knows I love wheelies
