i bought mine with a hyperpro damper and swapped for a rotary GPR, i cannot attest to the stability of the RC without one. They've saved me in the past so im a firm believer in them, and just help keep that front end stable when riding hard. I don't doubt screamincheif though, its a great bike and wouldn't surprise me if the bike was just as stable without one. I also agree on the riding school if they are available near you, but they can be very expensive.
If you cant afford one of these schools, at least do some reading, figure out techniques and so on. There was a pretty good show shown in Britain recently called superbike school consisting of 6 episodes and taught by the CSS. A lot of good basic rider info in there. Just take it slow and have fun.
