I have a GPR on my R6 and I know Gas Man will chime in and say that Scotts is the best. There are positives and negatives to each style of damper and I imagine it all depends on what you want and how much you want to spend. Do a search for steering dampers on the forum and I'm sure you'll find a thread where this has been discussed in detail.

JK, there are TONS of threads discussing this topic here on TWF! TONS!!!

Capt, is right.... Scotts is the only way to go! Many reasons!!

Scotts in general is a great company to buy stuff. The stabalizer and oil filter come to mind...

For average riding, save the money and get the hydro style.
If you are a track junkie or ride that pace on the street, get the rotary.

I was looking at the scotts because you can move it from bike to bike. Saving money in the long run. Can you do it with the GPR?
