2001 748, is the stock damper good? is it a progressive damper like the Hyperpro HCS or is it like a cheap Suzuki one? I currently have a Scotts Rotory type and was tinking about buying the top tripple to mount it to the 748. Any imput on anyone that has an aftermarket damper would be great.

there has already been a thread on this topic. If this does not answer you question, you may want to search the archives more - I had to search myself to find the link...

BTW, I think the stock damper is pretty much useless.

The Scotts is a helluva damper, but really it's hard to make a Duc twitchy enough to really need that much damper.


Are you racing this bike, or is it a street bike? Street, the stocker is just fine. For racing...maybe. Depends on how good - or bad - you are.

I agree, for street use the stock damper is fine, I've never had any problems with mine. I never had a bike with a damper before and never had any real problems there either, sure the Ohlins are better and look better but I can't justify the expense, maybe if you're racing or very fast on the track? :)
