slingshot steering damper removal?

I was thinking about taking off my sprint steering damper from my 1100m.

question is I suppose, has anyone tried this?

im wondering if the handling will turn into a headshaking wobbly mess?

What with newer rubber (Michelins), and renthals, is  it still needed?

 

opinions , or even better, experiences please. 

I don't want to be pulling it out of a hedge since ive just painted it.

Personally, I think it depends entirely on what roads you ride. Good quality A or B roads I'd say probably not necessary nowadays with improved tyres and suspension. But if you're partial to minor roads which can have some interesting surface variations a damper can occasionally be a useful insurance policy if you're cracking on. Can be a personal thing.
