GPR Stabilizer

How many of you run a Stabilizer on your bikes?

Does it really help reduce the amount of headshake at high speeds?

That's one thing that bothered me at the track was the headshake that happen every time coming into the back strait.
This wore me out pretty quick.

I have run the GPR Dampers on my R6 and 600RR. Don't like to ride without them and definetly don't ride at the track without them. (Made that mistake once.)

Patrick can beat internet prices on GPR dampers. Don't ask me how but he has had the lowest price I have found each time I have purchased one from him.

I've noticed the same w/ Motorcycles Unlimited.
I can't seem to find a place on-line that can beat their prices

It will definetly be saving your when coming up to speed on the TWS (Texas World Speedway) track. (Again, don't ask but it was a couple of check my leathers moments.)

I just ran across a thread talking about the GPR for the 675's

i had a scotts and even though its a great product to have, i get head shake going up wheelie hill. imagine how bad it would be without one!

whatever brand you decide on, it should be one of your first purchases after setting up your suspension too.
