The stock damper is fine for the track......I raced my 2000 750 in FUSA and CCS races at NHIS, Summit, Pocono and Daytona without any problems. I'm currently racing my 04 600 in FUSA, CCS and WERA and will keep the stock damper until it needs to be replaced and when it needs to be replaced, I'll buy a Scotts or an Ohlins.There's no need for an aftermarket damper on the K4's, unless you're racing. The handling is so good out of the crate, there's really no need to try and dampen out anything.
yes thats why I like my scotts. I wouldn't of bought it, but i already had it on my previous 929 for only 3 months. So i sold the bike and transfered the dampner. I rode it stock for a while, and I still think i can tell under more stressful conditions on the bike that she responds better with the different dampner. I had a near highside that also went tankslapper that was smoothly and quickly resolved, along with some annoying lane dividers here in texas that are the size of a softball!!. Point being, the stocker is fine, but the scotts is a beatiful peice of work. Plus you get plenty of complimentsi also like the adjustability of the aftermarket units..plus the look of a top mount HyperPro with the black and gold is just sweet..
I was just teasing....sorry but this topic has been beaten to death numerous times in this forum. As I've said numerous times...roll how ya like.Its not about being cool...or the cost involved, its about the improved handling and the performance of the bike being more stable.. Ok then why did you buy a Akra pipe for your bike..maybe performance or a "cool sound or look".. everyone likes there bike nice looking, too..dont get me wrong..i like getting stuff just for that reason..
