Stotts or GPR

I'm considering an upgrade of the triple clamp to allow the use of a Pro Taper bar at the same time.

you can make a Scotts work like any of the other brands, but you can't make any of the others work like a Scotts. I had a GPR for about 2 months, and to get it to feel like it was working on the big hits, it had heavy steering. Sold it and got a Scotts. Now, I don't feel it till I hit something in the trail. It is the only one that has damping control on a high and low speed circuit.
I'll second this statement!!!

I have 4 buds that have the GPR, all of them have leaked in 1 year, GPR has great customer service, the maintenance/rebuild is free but you have to send it in, i have the Scotts, it has never leaked, failed or anything, the repair costs more but it's been 2 years and still no issues with it!!!
I believe most people have a problem with leaking is, at least on the above bar mounts, that the stabilizer is not mounted in the right spot. Mine top handlebar mount had two positions for mounting, if not mounted exactly centered above the steering tube, it will leak. Mine did when I mounted wrong one time, leaked within 10 minutes. Looked at it closely, turned the mount around and did not have another problem. This probably does not account for all the leaky GPR's, but I bet at least a few.
