I'm going to put one on mine. My bike is far from stock, and the front does get twitchy from time to time. I've looked at the Storz and LSL kits, but think that I'll go with the Monster Ohlins kit. From the looks of it, it'll take a little bit of modding to make it work, but that's OK.

I'll be curious to hear what you think of yours.

I run a Hyperpro CSC type steering damper on my '95 along with Hyperpro plug and play fork leg and frame tube mounting adapter kits. Everything bolts right on,no modifications necessary.
Totally unobtrusive and super easy to adjust on the fly. Tucks in real nice and tidy on the left side of the bike as though it was always meant to be there.

Just a little food for thought Mike. Hyperpro actually offers two completely different type steering dampers,the CSC (Constant Safety Control) and the RSC (Reactive Safety Control).

The CSC type is a linear damper. Meaning the more you ramp up the damping adjuster knob the more constant damping you're going to feel through the bars as you move them from side to side.

The RSC type damper is much more transparent. Meaning that as you ramp up the damping adjuster knob you're going to feel very little if any damping through the bars as you move them from side to side.
However once the RSC damper senses a quick bar movement it instantly springs into action with a much more progressive damping curve compared to the CSC to quickly catch,even out,and cancel any quick bar movements.

Hyperpro steering dampers are 22 position adjustable,are fully rebuildable,use high quality bearings,have a one piece piston rod for perfect alignment,use triple function oil seals,are equipped with a nitrogen gas pressurized reservoir to prevent oil foaming,and are offered in a variety of different colors.

New paint and indoor residence

I picked up my freshly painted replica fairings. They look awesome! I will put the originals in storage for safe keeping. They are in great condition and are getting rare these days.

I also wheeled her indoors for a few weeks while the family are away escaping the brutal summer here. I have to stay here and work but it also means I will get some decent spanner time at home to crack on with a fork rebuild and Ohlins shock install, and a brake rebuild if I get time for that as well.

Bodywork fitted

Drilled the holes (in the right places - phew!) and fitted the new replica fairings. They look amazing. The auto painters did a fantastic job. It looks like new.

Replaced my stock exhaust header with a ceramic coated header. Thanks Ducoddy-SS for the good deal on it.

Got started on a fork rebuild and mod. I’m putting in heavier springs from Racetech and the gold valve upgrade. The real work starts tomorrow, when I find out if I did actually order and receive the right parts. Here’s hoping!

Looking for a good single rear seat. Local supplier for yours?

New chain

I thought I had an issue with my return springs in the gear linkage. It was just the chain had stretched in one spot, tight in the other and was binding on the mechanism. New chain solved the problem.
