I've read that in most cases tankslappers happen because of improperly setup suspension and not using proper throttle control.

I've had my 796 for two seasons now, including track days (I'd consider myself fast intermediate), and have never had a single issue running without a steering damper. Then again, the 796 doesn't have quite as much torque as the 1100.

I think it's easy enough to put one on if needed, and if it gives you the peace of mind of having it there, that's all that counts. So while I don't see it as a necessity, it can't hurt, and as is the case with most things, your mileage may vary.
