Does anyone have a link to where I could buy one? They appear to still have a website up, Bonnification I think, but no mention of these. Had one on my '04 and loved the stabilizing effect it made.

Thanks

Try calling them. I called them a short time back and found out that they are pretty much shut down. The owner I talked to had been in a pretty bad bike accident. He said that they would be still doing some small things, for a while. I have one of their dampers as well, and I really like it.

Dang that's bad news, hope he's going to be ok. Thanks Jim, I'll give them a call today.

Nope, sadly looks like they're gone to history. I'm surprised someone didn't pick up the design and produce them, they'd sell a ton I'm sure.

If you already haven't, take a look at E-Bay, you might find one there if you're lucky. Now, there are a few parts to it (washers, etc.) that might not be with it, again if you find one. Forchetto posted a picture a while back of one with all the pieces in place; it'd be worth your time to find it and check it out.
Hope this helps: Jim

By the way, Dazzzz, the damper came in 2 styles, a long and short top "handle". I found that the long version was much better for the Bonneville due to the height of the gas tank. The short one was too hard to grip and turn, especially with my arthritic fingers.
Good luck in your search: Jim
