still, spend the money, get a scotts and smile because you bought the best
Wouldn't you think that the mounting bracket would be different from the F4 and any ZX? The Ohlins, like many others, can be mounted to many different bikes when changing the mounting bracket.

I'm with Patrick. For the stunt guys, the Scotts would get my $$$s.

Good luck.

FWIW, I run the Ohlins on my track bike and love it.

of course it would be different, but the mount on the body of the damper for a factory zx10 is cast into the damper, with no adjustment...therefore, the pictured damper is not a factory zx10 unit....unless someone took the time, effort, and expense to grind off the mount and locate an adjustable mounting bracket and fabricate it all up to work, which isn't likely IMHO.

I've actually known a few guys who have had problems with their Scotts dampers leaking, so I've personally stayed away from them. I've usually run rod type dampers in the past (Ohlins, Toby) and really liked them for stoppies....Running a GPR now and haven't had any problems yet thankfully.

if you're really considering a GPR I would stick with the V1, they seem to be less likely to leak than the V4's....

I would run a scotts. I have it on my track bike and loved it this weekend.. you can adjust it on the fly and I have never ever heard a negative thing about a scotts.. but gpr is another story.. I have heard of them having to be rebuilt pretty regularly

fwiw, my scotts took a direct hit at around 15-20 mph and i had to replace the mount bolts ($7) because they were bent, and the nut that holds the main arm on (less than $5), other than that there was no damage to the unit or the mounting assembly, no leaking, and scotts had the parts to me in less than a week...

Yep...Check to see how much play there is in the middle before you decide though. I've felt some that have had a good amount of play (air) and isn't the best for stoppies. But you could always rebuild it with a little thicker oil.
