I went an got me a GPR V4 damper, it supposedly 30% lighter than the original.

I heard the piston type dampers can be damaged in an accident and have to get replaced whereas the rotory types do not.

scotts hands down





*

Base Valve-adjusts the amount of dampening (resistance) you feel at low or medium speeds
*

High Speed Valve-designed to help absorb large, unexpected hits
*

Sweep Control Valves-controls the distance of dampening force (or sweep) from the center line out to either side (left or right) until it releases. The damper is then free to move to the steering stop and back to center.

Scotts dampers let you safely adjust your steering dampening on the fly (use caution when doing so). It is also the only damper that is infinitely adjustable so you can set it to absorb any range or size of energy impact. You can even "turn it off" in case of a flat tire or other sort of emergency. There are no other dampers currently on the market that even come close to the performance of a Scotts steering damper. The damper is fully rebuildable and serviceable.

Let's face it, if you crash the first thing that breaks is your steering damper. Why?? Because they all use some sort of dampening rod.. that gets bent or worse ripped right out of the housing when the bike falls over. All except the SCOTTS Rotary Damper. That in itself is worth so much more than All the leading competition. If you add up all the features of the SCOTTS Damper ( High Speed & Low Speed Adj. , Total Degrees of Dampening Travel, Full Lock to Lock Rotation, Simple 4-5 minute Installation, and Virtually BulletProof Design)..It's clear there is only one way to go. We have had 100% satisfaction rating from our customers on ALL SCOTTS Dampers.

Well I do want to start stunting soon. But mainly I'm tired of hitting a bump and feeling like I'm riding a huge dirt bike.

i've got the GPR and its freaking awesome, it makes a major differance, and will prob be one of my first mods on any bike i buy in the future.

I know that the 600rr's come with dampers built in.

I have the Scott's and it makes a huge difference. Especially in canyon carving where the road might not be as smooth as a track. I got a smokin deal on mine though. They're normally like $500 or something, i got mine for $250.

i got mine for $250 on ebay........ not in box, but never installed. the new 600rr graffiti is pretty nice looking.

Just got my GPR V4, and it's awsome. I would highly reccomend a stabilizer. turnig and not so smooth streets are a breeze, no more handle bar vibrations. They are sweet.

Iv got a Hyperpro and I love it. I never really thought id need one cause I wasnt pushing it that hard at the time. As my skills got better I had a some head shake coming out of a turn so I bought one as soon as I got home. Its required equipment in my book. :fact
