no we don't have one on our bikes .. about the only company that they don't come with .. basically because the factory dampers that come on bikes, like suzukis, are cheap

I have the hyperpro ... but I've nothing but good things about both the gpr and ohlins ... I think it's more of a preference on what you like better looks wise

Anyone got a good website to get one of these? The manufactures websites don't seem to sell them.

I purchased my Matris damper from there, quality finish and just as good as other brands but they have good special pricing. For 06>

But I would just call for fitment confirmation...

scale of one to ten how bad do I need a damper? I have been riding for three years and have not gotten one for two reasons not sure if my riding style requires it and which one are the best?

I would have to say 10! you need it .
it really smooths the front out and makes it more stable no squiggle or sliping feel . my 06 is more stable with my hyper pro installed , I prefure hyper pro /olhins style dampners to the scotts/gpr type but all are good enough.
