Pics on the way mick also I've got a question the 4xv is my first bike and to be fair after reading few one the messages on here seems quite hard to tame would you recommend me buying stearin damper and what dig fences will it make for me ?

It all depends on how much you twist the throttle mate.

If you ride it sensibly then you will have no problems with it, but as you get used to the power and start to ride it harder then a steering damper will be a godsend.
As they do like to lift the front under hard acceleration.

A 4xv for a first bike? No wonder youre struggling to tame the beast, the 4xv is arguably the most brutal of the R1s, and the R1 isnt exactly a timid bike at any age!

Steering damper will almost be a requrement when you start pushing it harder, in fairness you might be a way off that yet bu its better to get it now before t becomes an issue rather than it be an issue and youre in the ambulance before you buy one - the front gets proper light when you really bean it, and thats when you need the damper the most.

Take it steady!
