i like my ohlin's steering damper...18 settings and #6 is perfect for me...so that tells me it has a lot more room to grow or loosen up if that makes sense

I've heard the newer v4 is mch better unit.

my experience is gpr or scotts is easily the best, the early gprs had some probs but were still great dampers, i go with whatever you can get a deal on....

ohlins prob works amazing, but i WILL NOT run a rod style. they bend in crashes and get expensive quick.....
