Re: (LDH)

very true Mike. Well alot also had used two or more they just don't remember. Like the Gixx750 came with stockers and they were ok, with no adjustabilities compared to my Scotts.

I might not know much about other dampner but darnit. I really like my Scotts

Re: Whats the best damper for the RC51 (Rocryder)

Good point. GPR: Built in the USA, in Southern California - by motorcyclists that actually ride, Lifetime warranty, Lifetime servicing, More AMA racers use GPR stabilizers than any other brand. http://www.gprstabilizer.com

I had an Ohlins telescopic damper on my 916, a Scotts rotary one on my Superhawk, and a Hyperpro on my 900SS. so far the GPR is tits.

My ZX-10 needs one now and I think I'll give them a try.

I heard good things about GPR myself, but the Scotts Damper is gold, and that makes it better!

Re: (cutter)

I'm a dealer for most dampers but I had to go with the Scott's since it had my name on it....lol

I didn't place a vote because I've only used the Scotts. While I can't feel the damper working I can feel the absence of headshake when I'm pulling hard coming off a turn. I think that's why I like the Scotts so much...I know it's working because my headshake is gone but it's transparent. I never feel like I have to overcome the damper to steer the bike.

the one that keeps you from scanning Ebay for 3 weeks looking for parts to repair your RC after that nasty tank-slapper.....


I've used Scott's, Sprint (piston style, frame mount) and GPR. I've only ever used a GPR on the RC51, but it works great. i do both street and track days.


the only complaint with GPR, is it comes with a new fairing stay. the new one is thinner than the stock one and allows the mirrors to {{vibrate}} more than the stock one ever did. not an issue at the track, since mirrors aren't on then.

Food for thought....

Re: Whats the best damper for the RC51 (Rigor)

is it mandatory to use the new fairing stay? I am about to order a GPR, but.... that's kinda weak

Re: Whats the best damper for the RC51 (Wild Child)

yep you have to change the F. stay but it looks stock. i loved my gpr its was very user friendy while riding. colors choices are cool too.

Re: Whats the best damper for the RC51 (Wild Child)

yes.

it mounts farther forward on the stem then the Scotts damper, and it will hit the stock fairing stay.

the new fairing stay in INCLUDED in the price, but just not as thick.....



i wrapped the fairing stay with hopes of it possibly damping some vibration out of it, but no go.

for the record: it only vibrates at certain RPMs, not all the time. mostly if you lug the engine below 3000 rpms.....

Another selling point for the GPR for us California guys, they come to Laguna for the AMA's and will service your GPR for free.

I had an Ohlins on my R1 and although it worked well, I hated it.

It would vibrate all over the place and jump up and down on its pivot points when I went over rough concrete. I ALMOAST took it off a number of times.

I have a Scotts on my RC51 and LOVE it. It works great, does not vibrate in the slightest, its just plain good with no downfall.

Anybody have any experience with ICS dampers? They have one that is similar to the GPR and Scotts, but about $100 cheaper. I know cheaper usually means crappier, but not always.
