Yeah I was thinking of waiting on the damper until after I did my forks but after 650 miles of windy miles this past weekend I thought I'd go ahead and get the damper. I've been running the forks moved up in the tripple clamps by 10mm. Really like the way it turns into corners now but the stability in cross winds at highway speeds has diminished somewhat, esp in traffic. I don't think the modified fork dampening would affect the stabiliy much on the highway. I could drop the forks back down but as I said it turns so sweet in the twisties I enjoy most that I think I'll keep them raised and run a damper.
