steering damper

what is the best steering damper for my 03 zx9r? I was thinking of getting it installed this june when i get back from overseas. I dont like the thought of getting into headshake and i heard that it really improves stability at speed. Anybody? I dont have unlimited funds for this but i dont want to limit myself to the cheapest brand either.

i would go with gpr if ur just street riding b\c ohlins or Scott's is a bit over kill. they are great steering damper but unless u race the gpr is good enough for street riding. if u want to pony up the extra cash the scott is better than the gpr b\c its more precise. so is the ohlines but mainly its what u want that matters. we have the gpr in stock but i am not sure about the scotts. we install too.
