This is a basic damper kit. On the plus, it is adjustable and the settings respond well. Workmanship is average and the directions are straight forward / easy to follow. The attachment hardware is really where the kit falls short of rating more than 3 stars. This kit is generic, the particular kit being too long by 10mm. Installed, the damper actuator rod impacts the fairing. Adjusting the mount helps, but not enough. The fork clamp lacks a radius edges and is detrimental to the wiring it resides beside. The fairing stay bracket is simply a piece of stamped steel that was jig bent into a shape to accommodate a particular bike application. Worst of all is the porous, cast-looking weak damper body clamp. That alone was reason enough for a return. These kits can be found for other bikes (H-D, touring, etc), new, at half the price. They include the exact same damper body with like style attachment brackets. Why they list for 50% less is nothing short of disturbing. I don't mind paying for quality, but this isn't it. Overall, this kit is not acceptable for the retail price paid in my opinion. The return process was simple, Dennis Kirk takes care of customers... a true 5 star retailer.
I have had it on my bike since 2003. i have had to rebuild it one time. the rebuild is cheap at 20 bucks. easy to do comes with good directions. the seal on one end was leaking. but thats not bad for how long it has been on my bike. the setings are good at full hard itys hard to turn the wheel. at soft its soft but still offers dampening. when you rebuild it i sugest putting a heavier oil in it that makes it a little stiffer. it has been threw 40,000 brutel miles on it. and still performs flawlesley. it dont look like a gpr but for the money it will prevent the wobles and help you out at track days. i think its a good buy.
This steering stabilizer is good for the price. I have an 03 GSXR-600. It took a little tweaking to get the fit just right but once it was installed I have had no trouble out of it.
The hardest setting you are not going to get the wobble in the handlebars. Take it from someone who has come off the front of my bike more than once. A stabilizer is a necessity. The GPR was a little out of my price range and I'm not a professional rider. I'm an amateur stunt rider and this stabilizer is good for what I need it for. I'm confident enough with this one that I can do all of my stunts without the fear of the headshake. Now if I come off the front of the bike it's going to be my own fault.
