if so will a generic one be o.k. as they all seem to be pretty much the same
cheers in advance.
I have one on a Beemer Boxer.
They can be very helpful, especially if you have a big fairing and or heavy panniers at the rear. High Speed riding and straight line cruising at high speeds sometimes also benefit from dampers.
I'm inclined to ask why you think you might need one?
Are you getting much wobble? If so, when does this happen, what helps to sort it out?
Are your steering head bearings, wheel bearings and front forks all in good order? Wheels true and well balanced with good tyres correctly inflated? If not you need to get these addressed before adding bits of kit that might mask problems.
There are two types of damper:
Friction - less common and probably not suitable for aNTy. Basically two friction surfaces that rub together, they slow any movement of the steering and "damp out" oscillation.
Damper - more common and suitable for generic placement. A small piston rod moves inside a damper chamber with hydraulic oil this also "damps out" oscillation.
Both systems can be adjusted for different rates of effect
