    Hi fellow 765 riders,

    Does our bike come with a steering damper? If yes how reliable is it

    If NO, what are the options for us?

    happy and safe riding!!!!!!!!!!

    Yes, it has one fitted on the underside of the fairing stay, however it has thin oil and does very little.  The old D675 came with one as well and I've heard of people putting thicker oil in it (it is serviceable as I understand).  I personally don't feel like I need or want a more significant steering damper but that's all up to the rider and their technique.

    My bike is off for suspension service so I can't send you a pic but it's basically the same mounting location as this:  https://www.apexmfg.com/all-products/2014-12-14-05-30-56/steering-damper-kit-daytona-13-15
