The difference between the two in terms of cost is roughly $25.00.
I've used both, the GPR's have less fine tune adjustability although on the street it's a non-factor.

2 things I have seen on the GPR:
We've had 7 come back in the last 1 1/2 years for leaking.
GPR repaired them at no charge, but the customer had to pay shipping.

On a lot of models the damper "let's go" at the end on the strke in either direction when close to steering lock.
Probably not an issue either, just an observation.

I've had one leaking Scotts in 8 years or so. It was a 5 year old unit that came from a wrecked racebike. Scotts repaired it for free.

The Scotts is only available in gold for you guys interested in "color matching" your bike.

I picked gpr for my bike and here is why...

The gpr color gold matched the other gold on my bike.

Easier to adjust while riding.

Did not require drilling the frame to mount it like the scotts requires you to do.

I love my gpr!

Hyperpro reactive-allows a softer setting-but gains more damping automatically
