I m looking for steering damper for my S4RS.

Question to those who has mount a Matris M4 on their Monster:
Does the damper obstruct the movement of the gas tank when you lift it up?

And does any member here have a photograph of the Ducati Performance steering damper?

Thanks in advance

I have a Matris M3 damper on my 620. There are no clearance issues with the gastank when it is properly mounted. Just make sure when you install it, you loosen the mount and twist and slide the damper around to get it in the correct position. It is very simple, a 5 minute job.

i have fitted a M4 to my S4RS.

There is no way you can lift up the tank without removing the steering damper.... period!

Loosen up the bolt move it forward tight it down again.

Notice how close is the damper to the tank at full left turn and right turn.

Btw Grifo which monster is yours? and whick bolt are you refering too, to loosen it up?

anyway it is still a neat steering damper. I still like it very much!

The ignition mount on yours and Grifos is different than mine. I guess because of your handlebars. My bracket mounts the damper partially over my top triple, away from the gas tank. Who did you order yours from? I would return it and inform Matris about this. :-\ That looks way too close for comfort

Can the damper for the s4 mount the same way on say, a 620 of similar year? The mount locations look the same?
