GPR troubles

I took the 675 around the block yesterday and noticed that the bike is VERY hard to turn now.
The Dampner was on the #4 setting for the track and seemed to be just right.
Now even with the setting at #1 it seems very stiff in the easy turns.
Any ideas?

If the GPR is functioning properly that shouldn't matter. My GPR on setting 1 is basically like having no GPR at all.

Take it off and see if it is still hard to turn. +1 on Derek's comment

I've rode several times with the Dampner *street & track* and never had any issues until now.

I'm sure Patrick and his crew will be able to fix this!

If it is the damper malfunctioning, I would send it back to GPR and have them fix the problem.

i had this same problem, turned out the mount was sitting ontop of one of my throttle cables, thus making the damper shifted to where it wasnt level with the handle bars. took the mount off and then remounted it and BOOM! perfect
