The rake and trail of my EX screams STABILITY.
But, I just had to install a steering damper, the bling it adds, looks so pretty.
For those with one, can you show me mounting alternatives?

Most are mounted from a fork tube to a frame rail, or crosswise from a tube to a rail under the key switch,
in either case you will find it must be left in the off setting. Worse possible thing you can do to your bike.
my race org required them but no ex needs one.

The caster angle on my EX is greater than my CBR1000 or R6, you can see it with them all next to each other.
The tip in on my EX is slightly slower than on my R6, and the EX wants to stand up sooner when I power out.

Try FOGBONES to get the drive vortex in line with the swingarm angle will allow getting on the throttle sooner
