Dampers on the WR
Posted February 05, 2008 - 05:11 AM
I am interested in getting one but am not really familiar with the technology.
As a fairly novice rider I do find that stupid steering mistakes cause me a lot of body ache...
I see Scotts and Motorsportz but that is about it...
Are there any good write ups about the different types and what forces they damp?

I too went with the SUB mount and love the 1" higher bars.

So with some more research I find that the Scotts only dampens going away from center. where the GPR and Motosportz dampen both ways.
Anyone see any advantages or disadvantages with bi-directional dampening??
I have no direct experience but I have read that some people don't like to "fight" to get their steering back to center.
I am in the same boat as you. Don't know which one to get. It seems to me there are a lot more Scott users around here than GPR.

Click on the manual it will give you detailed information on the avalible adjustments. Pay close attention to the High Speed setting. I like to increase the High Speed adjustment and lessen the regular tension adjustment so that I have good stability when I hit something or prevent getting knocked off line and I do not have to fight the tension all the time.

I know guys that have used the same Scotts for close to ten years without servicing - they just switch them from bike to bike when they get a new one.
I also have two bikes, and it takes me about 30 seconds to move my Scotts from one to the other.
Why would you buy anything else?
