I have posted this before.
My story is I applied for a new job, the best job in the world, I got the phone call on the Thursday to say I got the job, on the Friday I high sided my WR450f at about 10kph and broke my collar bone, I was very lucky they held the job for me while I recovered.
Since that accident I decided dampers were very very cheap and I would fit one to all my major rides, a damper is cheaper than any hospital bills, lost wages due to recovery times or motorcycle repair bills.
When a damper if adjusted properly you don't know it is there but you do know when it has done it's job, they do their best work on surprise elements like pot holes, tree roots and wildlife.
If you don't leave the city or your a very good clairvoyant then you probably don't need one but if you like to get out and about they are cheap insurance.
I have come to love the Scotts product, I have a GPR damper on my MT09 and it is rubbish, it works but it is very intrusive and there is not enough adjustment to get it comfortable.
