      It's one of those things because lawyers stick their noses into everything.
      IF Your head bearings would come loose and U had a wipeout without that piece in You could go after Suzuki...

          so it's one of those things I could dispense with like a steering damper, right?

            I left the bearing lock in place... and I left my stock damper in place...

            Its your decision.


            Mine was that I kept both.

                Only a lawyer is silly enough to think it could actually come loose together with both top yoke pinch bolts and steering stem nut, all without the rider noticing Oh, and the two collar thingies on the steering stem just under the top yoke..

                  ! So those fingers are not suppose to be locked into the slots in the headset bearing are they ?

                  Mine aren't even really touching, is this the norm ?

                    It keeps the bearing nut torqued, It can't come off but it can loosen. Yes, once it is adjusted, one of the finger thingies should get pushed down into the stem slot nearest to.

                          My damper is on and stock. I'd never take it off. The little finger thingy was never on my bike (bike bought used and in questionable conditions). So if it a must, I'll look for a replacement, otherwise, if it is a torque to specs thing, I'll most likely do so and take my chances

                          Afterthought: sucks getting second hand stuff that was touched by third rate hands.
