Wow. The ultimate set of sliders and they look awesome! The seat looks perfect as well. If anybody doesn't mind a noob question. What does a steering damper do for the bike?

A steering damper reduces head shake. Do a forum search for: head shake

In YouTube.com do a search for: head shake motorcycle

One of the results for that:

But if I recall right that doesn't mention one of the situations on the 09 that can produce head shakes is when you are accelerating so hard that the front tire is barely on the pavement.

alot of stunt bikes have that many rear calipers..


Actually, there is a rear hand brake setup, so you dont have to have your foot on the rear brake when wheelie-ing/standing up

The single piston caliper is for the foot brake and the dual piston is for the handbrake for off peg tricks like seat standers. The more brake power such as with dual piston the better the feel and more confidence it'll bring you back from the brink.
