I have a new predator and absolutely love it except the front end seems pretty squirrely at higher speeds, on the track, on the rough trail and on gravel roads. It is new so it shouldn't be ball joints. If anything I may have the front too stiff. Has anyone tried a steering dampener for this machine, or is there anything else I should check? I will look at the front end alignment next as I found the front end specs here for that. Thanks.

I just installed the Denton 7 way click adjust steering dampner on my TLD predator, and after 5 days of high speed duning and trail riding, it greatly helps absorb dune ruts and harsh hits.

Interesting point was that on my Banshee I usually run one on click 5 or 6, but on the Preddy I found click 2 was fine and 3 was stiff enough. Never had (nor wanted) to run it on 4 or even 5 as click 3 was plenty stiff.

For trail putt putts, click 3 was great for one handed riding and relaxed stable steering.

Another great thing is that you can bend over and reach the adjustment knob while riding so you can even adjust it on the fly......THAT is really handy.

It's a really good mod, one of the first I'd do after a exhaust and K&N, got mine for $139 through Rath Racing to support the little guy. Great performance, I run them on all my quads as do most my riding buddies.

Let me know if you have any other questions on it.......
