They are "NOT" the same for all bikes! some adds will tell you they are, but the road and dirt models are different. on the face of the stabilizer there is an "R" stamped at the top on the road models. if its not stamped then its a dirt model. the difference is that dirt model only dampens away from center and the road model dampens both ways

Actually they are the same the only difference is the Flat Arm (street bikes) vs. the Stepped Arm (Dirt). If you buy one with the flat arm you can simply buy the stepped arm and a puller from scotts for about $50.

I have a scotts damper with the flat arm for my R1 and I plan on using it on my dirt so I will need to change the Arm every time I switch bikes. 5-10min

Also if your buying a used bike, find out how many miles on the damper. 10,000 miles (street) is around the time you need to get them rebuilt.

Hope this helps.

In addition to the arm, there are differences in internal damping between the street and dirt versions.

According to Scotts, a street bike stabilizer dampens away from center, and back to center-where as a dirt bike stabilizer dampens away from center, and does not dampen back to center. Apparently this allows for quicker recovery in the dirt.

My question is which is best for supermoto and street driving on a dirt bike???

The Scotts dirt stabilizers also may be different because the arms come in different lengths depending on the application. Some situations require arm to be forward and some go backwards. All this means is that you may need to special order a different arm and you may or may not need the arm puller tool.

Well you got hosed or you talked to someone who didn't know what they were talking about. I called them last week before my post and I got confirmation that they were the same. I'm not sure if your Gixxer needed a special damper but my R1 is the same.

Whether you have medical insurance or not; a stabilizer can help prevent an injury 50 miles away from no where. Maybe you just do circles around your pick up truck???

Also the Scotts stabilizer for the street and dirt are different.
