I almost got a set but decided against it because they would not work with steering damper. 

I think they make a top mount clamp that works with these and the Damper.. saw it on their site.  However it would be a top mount damper.

Still metal to metal.....so it ain't gonna do much...

Thanks Kran, was just curious whether they had a "noticeable" effect or not.

I have the submount from BRP with a simalar 'elastomeric isolation' mounts, and it does nothing to quell vibration, in my opinion...

I have this one, it's full rubber touch points and 360* movement. Expensive and large but works as advertised. Reduces impacts to the wrist and lessen vibrations.

I can say that almost every EX pro uses the x-trig on their race bikes. I guess they reduce some of the shock. They also raise the bars up somewhat.

We made sure Beta didn't put them on Ty's race bike (Max Gerston uses them) since he doesn't have them for the practice bike and we want the two bikes to be as close to the same as possible. Plus I didn't want to pay that much just to try something.

Agreed on that. A pricey investment for something with little feedback. All I have found so far is that the green (softest) bushings are noticeable and help.

I bought the mounts for my Husqvarna and although I do like them (with the optional green elastomers) they do seem to allow the bars to tweak more often when crashing hard, which requires loosening and adjusting them which sucks

with the green bushings would you say you notice difference on trail hack and bumps?  less arm fatigue?

Sounds like you might be trying to solve a suspension problem with the wrong tool. Get your forks setup the best they can be first. If your holding too tight it could be your not confident in the fork to do its job. And no, stock is not good enough. After that experiment with dampers and Flexxbars. I run Flexxbars as I had them from another bike. I like them, but I run the stiff elastomers as I do not like to notice movement. The KYB fork is what does the job in the rocks and chop, an order of magnitude better than an OC Sachs.
