Mounted mine up today. Similar look to stock but has adjustability. Simple install. Spacers are different. Heading out tomorrow to give it a go.

Got one on backorder, maybe Mid june. And $600!

Waiting game which sucks.

You could always cancel then buy the hyperpro one from Adelaide for $450

I could but id rather buy ohlins. That way I can match it if they ever finally release anything for the DDC suspension.

Ok cool but you paid a lot for it. You could always get it for around $420 AUD delivered from here https://www.omniaracing.net/en/ohlins-linear-steering-damper-for-bmw-s1000r-2014-p-20689.html

Haven't got my bike yet, but why replace the standard steering damper with an aftermarket part? Is it because the original sucks or you guys just want an adjustable one?
If at first you don't succeed, chuck it all in and go for a ride!

So I take it the standard one isn't up to the task? Will be good to hear some feedback on various brands, and if they cure the headshake. Cheers.
