The motowheels SF and the Shift-Tech SF. I also want to upgrade my stock damper to a Ohlins...Could any one tell me if there is any Ohlins steering dampers to fit the Streetfighter S and where to purchase them. My new bike gets really bad head shake is this common.
There is absolutely no reason you should be paying this stupid amount of money for the full exhaust. You should be buying it from the US and shipping it home. PM me if you need help on this. (Sydneysider in the US)... same with all the other accessories and gear available. The Australian importers and retailers are ripping you off. $6500 Aust = $5500 US which is $2000 US more than it should be.i have ordered a complete exhaust which they tell me is 10 weeks away and the cost is $6500 The bike itself was $33000 for the S model .
Aussie man, you may want to look at Shift-Tech. He sells all of all the above that you are looking for and his stuff is all top shelf. He even said he ships direct to Australia. I bought all my stuff from Shift-Tech and I am a very happy customer.TheDucnutOfBevelville Thanks for the tip , I have been looking at some american sites and I have noticed the price difference, I think Kevin Rudd is partly to blame for the pricing. I am chasing slipper clutch,crash protectors,carbon fibre and levers . I just had my suspension reworked and setup to suit me(and the crap roads here) Going for a test ride today
I think this buffeting that you experience on the freeway is probably NOT what is meant by head shake. It is the common side-to-side buffeting produced by the the air streams coming off the trucks and other large vehicles on the road around you. The best way to deal with that buffeting in my experience is just to relax and lighten your grip on the bars. The motion is unsettling, but will not make the bike uncontrollable at all, as the mean effect of the induced bike motion is usually close to 0. You can speed up or slow down to find quieter air to ride in. I doubt a steering damper change will make much difference in this phenomenon, unless the buffeting also triggers real speed wobble (head shake) in your bike, which I've personally not experienced.The motowheels SF and the Shift-Tech SF.

The only time I have any type of head shake is when I am on the freeway behind a large truck. It's a bit unsettling but manageable.

This was a proper tank slapper and it nearly went down the road, the surface was pretty rough and a slight left handed corner with the throttle screwed on hard. I now have had the suspension reworked with new springs and valve changes to keep me pointed in the right direction, but I would still like an adjustable damper
