Mine works just fine. The ONLY place I've heard anything bad about the dampener was in sportrider, "we also found the CBR required a lot more muscle to flick from full lean on one side to the other, espcially as the speeds picked up, a probable consequencs of the electronic steering damper fighting your steering inputs.
Other than that, I havent even heard rumors of anything bad with the HESD.

Can't even tell there is a damper there. haven't ridden it hard enough to find out either. That would be a nightmare if they had problems with those.
I would assume that honda would have put a lot of time and R&D into that steering dampener... Imagine the lawsuits if they were to fail.
So I would guess that the guy heard that there were problems with the HESD probably heard that through the Bull$hit grapevine. :shock:
