Steering Dampers

I know that everyone is pretty split on whether or not the GSW requires a steering damper, but I'm interested in getting one. I've heard that Hyperpro is working on one, but I can't seem to find it any info on the product other than "it will be available at the end of August (or September depending on who you hear it from.) Does anyone have a link to a distributor, or even any reviews? I've also found one developed by a company in Belgium called Toby. ( http://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-R1200GS-...5124af&vxp=mtr ) Does anyone have any insight on ANY steering dampers currently available?

I emailed EPM Performance Imports, the US distributer for Hyperpro and received this response:

Thank you for your interest in the Hyperpro steering damper.
The factory is currently working on it and fitment tests are scheduled.
I expect to know more by the end of September.

Man it seems like they keep pushing it back. I wonder what's going on?

Yacugar is another European maker of steering dampers and is the brand I am tempted to get for my GS Adventure. Nothing listed on their website yet for water cooled models. It might be worth contacting them to see how soon.

How about this one ? I like it better than the "standard" dampener. Any news about a version for LC ?

Definitely interested in the GPR unit but can't find any info on how the pin mounts. Anyone had a look at one of these up close?
