At least it fell completely out. I think some folks have had problems with them becoming loose and them jamming up the steering mid-ride.

This motorcycle is simply too goddamn fast to ride at speed in any kind of normal road traffic unless you're ready to go straight down the centerline with your nuts on fire and a silent scream in your throat. ~Hunter S. Thompson

the stock one sure doesnt hurt anything. may not be as nice as some of the $500 ones but it isnt a total waste. just use this as an opportunity to justify getting a better one

I don't know how you'd be able to prove the bike never came with a steering damper.....it probably won't be covered under warranty for "falling out"

Doesn't hurt to ask though

Not sure why you want the stock damper on there anyways - it really doesn't help at all.

Well there was a service bulletin put out to loc-tite and tighten the bolt to make sure it did not loosen mid ride and bind up the steering.
