GPR Stabilizer = No Good

So back in March of this year I purchased a GPR Stabilizer for my R6. Since installing it I have rode 3 times and this thing leaks oil all over the place. I called the company that I bought it from and they told me that they have had alot of complaints about them leaking from other people and they are now no longer selling them. So just be aware if you are in the market for a front stabilizer think twice about the GPR. Now I may get a few emails saying theres are good and I am sure there are people that have them and they work great but I am leting you guys know about my experience.

GPR has very good customer service (so I've read... a LOT). Send it in and don't be turned off, they make a good product. happens sometimes, though.

i was thinking the same thing. too many people run gpr's with no problems. sounds like you just got a lemon. call gpr and send it back in.

I believe from another post Patrick had dealings with them too; But from what I've heard they do stand behind their products.

My GPR on my 06 750 has been through 2 nasty crashes with no mechanical issues. I'm happy with it.

i got a GPR and have had it for well over 20,000 miles and no issues... maybe the people you bought it from sold you a used unit or something...
