Which Damper/stabalizer???Need recommendations

looking into getting a new damper for the bike. i was going out to the ccs races on sunday and noticed a woble during a high speed pull.
any recommendations on which one i should go with, best performance/money, that i can buy for a good price.

I was looking at ohlins website and the have 2 different sizes (63mm & 68mm)
which size would i need??

And then i see Scotts, a lil bit more expensive 100$ bucks...

just a lil confused and need some recommendations/advice

You ride an 04 and have never had yours services I would suggest you change the oil in the 1 that you have 1st that will stiffen it up fo shizzle and wont cost you anything besides the oil you can do this yourself

Matt,
They're not really serviceable, but I've got a low mileage one I'll give you if you want.

IMO on that bike the stock damper isn't real good.

I'd go with a GPR or a Scotts.
Give me a shout tomorrow and I'll see what kind of pricing I can get you.
