Can't say I've had problems with mine. It does what it's supposed to do. Even when landing the front crooked.

i didn't feel a difference between having my stocker on and when i took it off - i've heard changing the oil in the stock damper makes a difference though.

my hyperpro at the lowest setting offers a better feel than the stock one i had.....hence why I think it's useless.....but maybe I just had a dud to begin with

Attack life. It's going to kill you anyways

You would have seen it fall out most likely. The stock is pretty useless, if you are really worried about it just buy an aftermarket, I now wish I would not have sold my hyperpro since i decided to keep my bike. Its a great SD

Are you the original owner?

That frame boss is for the steering damper bracket. The bracket is held to the frame with two bolts and to the radiator bracket with one bolt. The steering damper is also held to the lower triple with a bolt. The Damper is held to the bracket with one bolts.

That's five bolts on the assembly, four of which hold it to the bike. Highly unlike that they fell out at the same time

Wait, Do you have a Striple? it's nothing then. The Damper/bracket is a Daytona item
