Arrow GPR DAMPER OPINIONS!

I was going to mod the free Ohlins from a ZX-10R to fit my bike but figured I would just buy one. If you don't know, I ride a 06 ZX-6R and was wondering what you guys think about the GPR Steering Stabilizer? I found one for $280 shipped. The guy used it for 2 weeks and then sold his bike for a 1000. They have LIFETIME warranty's on them and the guy gave me all his info and said if there are any problems he will refund me my full amount paid. How is the damper? And problems? Please post your Pro's and Con's!!! Thanks!

sounds pretty good. I paid $200 shipped for a V4 slightly used to. hope that's a v4, if a v1 then look around you will find it cheaper. I didn't know gpr gives lifetime warranty? These damper still needs to be freshen up from time to time. Not a bad price though and good stuff.

I think my friend paid $225 shipped for his GPR v1 for his ZX6R. That one looks to be in a bit better condition though.

Gumby GPR stabalizers are great stabalizers! I've used a couple of them on off road applications a lot! They have been fantastic. Now having said that they don't quite have the adjustment ability'd of the Scott's but I'm not sure I'd notice the difference. I'm sure a pro would notice the differnce, but on my motard on track, street, and offroad it's been great and makes a HUGE difference in stability.

I prefer Scotts, I have heard of leaking issues with GPR. Yes they are covered under warrenty, but I have never had a issue with a Scotts.

personally i would rather have a v1 than a v4....the v4's are notorious for leaking....even when brand new....the v1's do have less adjustment, but don't really leak....as previously stated all rotary style dampers that i know of do need the oil freshened up from time to time, so if you can, find out how old the damper is......as long as you're okay with less adjustment it sounds like a great deal...i was actually going to buy a v1 before i stumbled upon my scotts....
