What's more important to you how it looks or how it rides? that's about the only determining factor.

I'd say take care of your damper first. You could always tell yourself the paint is coming later as this is only your winter testing

It's not about my bike silly! I have one...

My friend was saying he was going to get a dampner and the douche said ooh noooo you don't need one... Get a paint job!!!!

It's a good safety feature and makes a of a better ride.

Haha!

ugh! I don't know everything!!! But I know r6s and how they ride. I also know my boyfriend is a smart lil man and he rides an r6 and he said dampner first... (I promised to not bring him into this) so I won't say his name lmbo! But this is my really good friend and his safety is more important then a paint job to me. Just saying!

Dampner.. because worst case senario...you might crash not having one from a tank slapper then you will need new paint and a dampner...check this out! http://www.hardracing.com/Shocks%20&...20Damp/GPR.htm they have the lowest price I could find. V4 from 319-379 and since were in Texas no sales tax and shipping is like $10.00

do you think a stabilizer is needed when someone doesnt drive aggressively? in my opinion a stabilizer is utilized when exiting corners at high speed, landing wheelies, or for high speed stability. ive owned two bikes without stabilizers and honestly, i didnt feel the need to have one until i got my liter bike... unless however you plan on taking it to the track in which case it would be a different story

I guess you're all clueless

It's DAMPER, not "dampner"

I havent put an R6 through the paces so Im not sure how much they need one, but knowing how I ride, if it was me I would get the damper first
