Wish I could shed some light on that damper for ya, but my only experience is with the Scott's.

Life is too short to ride anything but an R1

You can go to www.gixxer.com and search for it. If you want a cheap solution the 96-99 750 damper should bolt right on. Dirt cheap on eBay but not as good.

I have one of these. I like it. It was very easy to mount (on my F4i) it took about 20 minutes. it's easy to adjust on the fly (in my location montued on top) and seems to have a smooth action. I haven't had a headshake since I got it and when my front comes up, it's definitely smoother.

I think it's a good cheap damener. DanO at Woodfield recomended it to me.

What ever you do I would not recommend a HyperPro. Mine leaked from day one and there is no rebuild kit only send in for replacement or rebuild. Both cost over $100

My curiosity is wondering what the pricing is on an M.Toby damper? A search didn't result in any places that sell them.

Nevermind, found a place that sells one for the F3 for $270. Not too bad considering pricing on other dampers. Maybe later in the summer I'll put one on when the funds on there, the front end does like to wiggle a bit when i pull the wheel off the ground

They are good dampers and at usually good prices. I used to have one but traded up for an Öhlins. I had a Hyperpro too with poor results.
