The TV has, in my experience, pretty stable steering geometry. I haven't experienced any 'flightyness' on mine. Can I ask why do you feel the need for a damper? Could there be a problem elsewhere that fitting a damper would only mask...

Counter intuitively, preload on the rear train may imply flightlyness on front train. If riding with too much preload or not enough preload, you may feel a steering damper on a bike is required. Additionally, the position (and the way to load the front train) may also have a key impact. Don't forget each driver conformation is different…

Another thing is the tire profiles : when the wear is not uniform, it have also a non neglectable impact...
Marko G. and Marko G. like this.

Looking forward for MVArdeche event in 2019

When i in third gear on approx 10000-10500 close to limiter front tire starts to "fly" and steering starts to wobble for a second, at beginning i thought it happens only when i speeding "uphill" but happens few times downhill also...

Yes, rear preload is set to full, and i don't mind for flightlyness on front train (its normal) and i can feel and regulate that with throttle, but wobbling is "pretty scary"...

I run with preload set to 0 normally, and when with a passenger or loaded, one turn of preload by 4kg of load... And when too much preload or not enough, I sense it easily... But not to the point front is wobbling (far from this)

Thank you MarcSilverTriple i will try to "play" with suspension more, have few more options, only thing that worries me is testing
I am pretty sure if there is a steering dumper for TV problem will be solved instantly.

Did you see Marc Márquez at Le Mans last weekend. Towards the end of the start finish straight he was getting a proper wobble on, did he back off...? of course not
