GPR (a local San Diego Company) has a version 4 (under the bar) stabilizer in the works for our little WR250R......it's not out yet but hopefully I'll be able to post a picture of one on my bike within the next few months.....I've used both Scott's and GPRs......I prefer the GPR.....

Yes, have the Scott's under bar on mine and absolutely love it. Dial it up for what ever conditions you are in almost instantly. Makes a huge difference. Best accessory you can buy for your bike.

Hi, I'm looking at the GRP due to good reviews and a decent price. Any chance of an update and the model/fitting kit code so - can enquire with my importer?

GPR does not list the Wr250R on their site yet?

Next question - which steering damper could I use with my set of Rox anti-vibe risers (they use the lower stock clamps)

Crawdaddy, any chance of getting a group deal on one of those?
It has been almost a year and I still don't see the WR250X/R listed on their web site.
I am trying to decide between this one and the Scotts. Also considering one from Washington.

Looking forward to your reply...

I'm annoyed with myself for not picking up a GPRs damper when I was over in the States last week. They're so expensive here. I need to get my bike back together with the Rox risers and see if I like that enough to deny myself a steering damper by using them (I haven't found one that fits will them).

Recently installed the GPR. Could not be happier with the way it performs. Installation instructions could be more detailed. Makes the front end more "precise" and more controllable.

PostSubject: I just bought one as well....   Tue Feb 15, 2011 1:35 pm

Will it really fit under the bars??? There's not much room there with the 7/8" bar mounts???? I know they're shipping me shims, will it fit?

With the kit you get new bar mounts and steering stem nut that work with the steering damper so clearance not an issue. The bar mounts are machined for fat bars but if you have 7/8" like I do, ask to be supplied with bushings for those bars. What the instructions don't tell you is that in addition to bending the one cable stay forwards all the way, you also have to remove another one. Otherwise both will interfere with the headstock collar at left/right lock. Not a big deal but if you do it in advance, will save you the work of removing the top triple again to do so.

Same deal here with the cable stays, bend the center loop one down and removed the one on the left side.

Been futzing around with other parts of mods. I should post my pics tonight.
