I agree with your friends, I think a steering damper is unnecessary on our bike. While the steering is fairly quick the bike is not powerful enough to cause the front end to float under acceleration. I know, you can wheelie in the first two gears, but after that the drama settles down.
Nothing sticks as well, and makes you feel so much like Rossi (confidence), as a new tire. Maybe your pr2 is close to the end of its life? Besides the stockers, I've had 4 different tires on the front: Avon Storm, Scorp Trail, PR3 and MT60. When they were new they all felt unbeatable. Some adaptation is required as the tires begin to wear out, IMO.
