GPR vs Scotts rotary

Hey, I'm trying to decide between the two rotary dampners I can find readily available. I know that the Scotts has more settings, but is it really that much better? P.S. This is going on the '05 ZX-6R. Also anyone know of a group buy for these? I signed up for one on Kawiforums.com and never got the PM.

Thanks!

i have a zx7 scotts mounting kit that may work on your bike...i'll sell it for cheap if it fits...that would make your scotts buying purchase cheaper if you were to go that route...

GPR has had sporadic quality issues. They've made them all right, but the unit had to be shipped back, and they don't pay freight.
On the other hand, I've never had any issues with a scotts damper.

I'll do a group buy on the Scott's if enough people are interested. PM me for details.

I think the scotts mounting looks much cleaner also.
I also did not like the the dead spot when a GPR is turned to the left all the way. Would never effect you while riding but I just didn't like that.
Scotts worth the extra money

I just mounted a new gpr on my bike and it seems to be working great.

I have used several scotts in the past and they work great as well.
