I dont think the 14 needs a damper.
More than a few ocasions any normal bike would have thrown me off, at times.
Recently i was going 110 , cranked over at lean, went through a deep patch of sand in the road, ( from winter maintainance ) got a good little wobble in the bars. Enough for me to put my foot down and peel back the toe soul of my brand new boots.
A second occasion, going even faster in a long sweeping curve,, with alot of lean angle. There was some sort of rock,, about 3 inch by 3 inch diameter in my line. My front tire and rear tire both went over it.. I also found a flat spot on my cat converter right after that. MIGHT have happened when it fell over in garage. Nothing scary happened. Didnt shop for a damper after that.
Coming to stop lights,, i can totally let go of the bars and with 1 finger , lightly pull the front brake lever and slow her down to a stop. No shaking or turning happens.
If you have shake , something else is wrong.
