Go to the web sites for the different racing teams- AMA and WSBK, whatever. Look at the top triple clamp- you'll see the linear dampers, or nothing at all on top. If they used rotary, you'd see them on top of the triple clamps.

Most of the GSXRs I've seen have their linear damper mounted in the stock location- I see a lot of Kawis with the linear damper top mount.

Just an observation, the rotary dampers worked fine for me when I had one.

Scotts = Ohlins.

I have linear damper on my Gixxer, (track) and rotry on my street bikes. Dont see much differance in the two styles. Ohlins makes both types correct?

I've used rotary and they worked well for me, but I didn't own them or the bikes they were on, so I didn't need to concern myself with details beyond short duration performance. The best of these was Ohlins. I have a Hyperpro linear which is a VS model, but I've used Ohlins, Sprint, Toby and Storz linears, too, and all are top notch. Storz doesn't make short throw dampers, however.

I have the GPR on the 06 r6 and have had no issues with and it gets used on the track and the street. I went with gpr because it did not require drilling the frame to mount it on the r6 where the pitbull, and Scotts dampers required drilling the frame to fit it to an 06 r6

I have the ohlins on the Ducati monster and it to has been trouble free but only use this bike on the street.

No way. My Scotts damper took 20 mins to install no drilling or cutting or any modifications required.

We run the HyperPro RSC on the LSTD endurance bikes. They have never given us any trouble and I recommend em.

Ditto my KTM...and others before it.

Oh, and by the way, the Corona team uses GPR units, so there's at least one (semi) factory effort that uses rotary units.

Hyperpro makes 2 that look like this. One is the RSC that is active and the CSC that isnt. But are nitrogen filled too.

There is a major difference between the way dampers mount on the r6s vs the r6.

Really? I was not aware the installs were that different. From my understanding the scotts top mount was a simple install on nearly all bikes. What exactly did you have to drill?

I have both currently...Scott's on my R6 and GPR on the GSXR. I like both, never had an issue with either. I just like being able to adjust the damper in a click or two even with gloves on.

On the 06-08 r6 you have to drill and tap the frame and if you mess this up you can ruin the frame.

. I wasn't aware of that. Does the GPR on the new R6 require drilling as well?

The 06-07 R6 GPR model did not require drilling on the r6 and thats why I chose GPR over Scotts.

I don't know about the GPR on the 2008 r6.
