I would like my bike to feel more stable and secure on long high speed turns especially on track. I will install the Matris.
Welcome, Nidan, this is a great forum with great people here, hope you enjoy it. BTW, I was noticing your name, are you a second degree?

BrisBrutale: When you refer to "tank slapper" does that mean one handle bar hits the tank on full lock agressively? or do you mean when the tanks hits your chest ie unintended wheelie?
Tank slapper- rider's legs banging against the sides of the tank rapidly due to front wheel instability/wobble caused by the lack of traction of the front end(during acceleration and/or bumpy road etc.) it is sometimes called speed wobble too.

Another member is trying to get a mount made for the Scotts damper, and I hope he succeeds so we can all benefit. I was just speaking with Pit-Bull, and they have no immediate plans to make one for the Brut either.
However, the more I see the Matris, the more I like it, I just wish I could see/ride one in person.

Wink Slapper

BrisBrutale, a "Tankslapper" is an uncontrolled violent kicking of the bars from side to side usually caused by hard acceleration over an uneven road surface. The steering damper "dampens" this motion out.

All the best
