I have the GPR on my 2005 WR 250F. It works great and they will give you free rebuilds with quick turnaround. :)

I have the Scotts complete package. It works great, but I am planning on getting BRP's sub-mount because it places the damper under the bars so you can use a bar with a crossbar pad. I think that is very important for agressive riding. In a bad crash the Damper could go right through your sternum and kill you. There's also the GPR 2, which mounts under the bar as well.

Call BRP and they'll set you up with a Scotts dampner. When I bought mine they did not have a sub bar mount set up for the WR but that may have changed. I've ridden with both the GPR and Scotts and I like the Scotts better, but both are nice.
