The steering damper is a pretty ez replacement. I'm about due at 52,000 miles.

I am looking at HyperPro as a replacement. They have been endorsed by a number of members here on the site. Check them out before you pull the trigger on an OEM replacement.

Just bought a Hyperpro active for $269 at ExoticSportbike. It is on backorder and will be here on the 17th, a day after I start my 10 day trip!
