    Steering Stabilizer/Damper

    Has anyone installed a steering stabilizer/damper on their NT? I'm considering it in an effort to decrease th vibration and harshness in my steering.

    Speaking generally, steering dampers are not designed to reduce vibration and harshness you feel in the grips.

    I don't know of anyone who has added a stabilizer.
    Have you gone over the front end closely (wheel balance, steering bearings)?

    Check your front tyre as I suspect this is probably the cause of your front end problems.

    It is amazing how much better a bike feels with a new front tyre ;-)

    +1. Some brands/models of tires seem to develop cupping at a fairly low mileage.
