I rode my friends 929RR on Saturday, It is a amazing bike! He has a Scott Dampner on it, it really allowed perfect steering and no jarring due to road imperfections. I have heard the Triumphs are really well set up in regard to steering, do think a dampner is important? Should I consider one? Mainly for the second point I made in regard to minor bumps.

I don't think a steering damper is needed on an ST. The chasis geometry just isn't that radical to require it. I've only experienced a hint of head shake once on my ST. It happened when I was running at wide open throttle passing a car in a slight turn and I hit some bumps. It lasted for just a second before things settled down. It was a little scary but not enough to be dangerous. Basically, I think it would be money wasted for an ST.

Thanks for info Sprinter, I agree the ST is very well setup.

Any other opinions?

I agree that the ST really doesn't need a stablizer. If our bikes gets squirlly it's more likly something needing tightening(head bearings, swingarm bearings, etc) or something wrong in the suspension.
