On my FE570 offroad I love my steering damper (Íhlins S2).
On my FE570 motard/ice a steering damper feels like it works against me so I have none.

Depends on you, your setup, the bike and what you drive I guess?

The pre-09 enduro bikes IMO need them for speeds on tarmac above 50mph or so. They have a slight skake.
I fit the scotts damper to mine but only like it barely on at about 6 clicks. And pretty much leave it there for everything, on or off road.

What bike do you have phillboy?
My 05 to 07 enduros benefitted on the street 50+
Benefits in the sand at high speed.
And I like the slightly added stability in all other general dirt trails.
Like I said. Around 6 clicks for me but at a full affect. I dont like the partial radius setting.
And I have turned it up a few clicks for street, but usually leave it in its sweet spot.

can usually get rid of headshake by lowering rear or raising front (dropping tubes) to get rid of "stinkbug" posture

I knew I should have went flush with the tubes.
But then again I liked how it turned at a few mil up..
