Ok well I think I'm down to Hyperpro or GPR.

I'm not drilling a thing in the frame..........

Any more input on either damper leaking or needing frequent service? Frequent meaning not lasting at least one race season.

I appreciate all the responses...........

I have run Scotts and GPRs before with out any trouble. But Jimmy C said the rod types are better so we switched over to the HyperPros.

I prefer the rotary.
I've had some racers use the rod style; Bill Drake and Brandon come to mind and not have it work well for them, ymmv.

Scotts have given us less warranty issues than GPR. I think we've had one Scotts warranty in the last 7 years vs. an easy 10 GPRs in the time period.

However both have been good about repairing the dampers under warranty.


Gabe,
Most of my experience with Hyperpro has not been good; leaking seals, dodgy warranty repairs etc., I hope you have better luck with them.

Dampers, by nature, are going to need some amount of maintenance. When I had the Scotts, it was easy to rebuild, but so far, the Hyperpro hasn't needed anything and it works great.

I personally like the way the Hyperpro works vs the Scotts, the adjustability feels more "fine" whereas the Scotts seemed like it was all or nothing. With the Hyperpro, I can tell the difference between clicks.

Personally, I don't believe you can really go wrong with rotary or linear as long as it's a reputable damper. Pit Bull, GPR, and Scotts are the only rotary damper I would go with; Hyperpro and Ohlins are the only brands I would personally look at for linear dampers.
