GPR stabiliser on a WR 426 ??
Posted September 17, 2003 - 09:27 AM
I'm aware that the stabiliser won't make me a pro level racer, but 45 years old bones tend to heal slower than 25's . So if it can save me from going down a few times, I think it will pay for itself.
From the info I received it seems to be quite simple to install. But before going on with my project, I'd like to know from people who actually did the installation.
I have a Renthal bar (Jimmy B. bend) with home made risers, 1.5 inch up and 1.5 inch forward.
I'd like to keep the high position of the bar, but it seems that the GPR need to be installed with the handlebar at its original place on the triple clamp. Any comment ?
Is there a handlebar that offers a higher position than the one I have ?
I want to keep the standard size bar, any shortcoming I should know ?
All info is welcome

Do you have an aftermarket top clamp
No I don't.
I checked on the link, and it seems that the GPR 2.0 should be the one.
Now I need to know if the gpr 2.0 will fit my wr 426 2002.
I'd like to keep the raised position of my handlebar, but the old version of the gpr fits on top of the bar, lowering it.
The 2.0 seems to be the choice, but will it fit well?

If I want to go with the gpr 2.0 I need the top triple clamp. Which translate too much more $$ coming out of my not so deep pocket, app 950.00 cdn.
Do you know of any means of fitting the standard gpr (600.00 cdn) with a stock size bar while keeping a 1 inch rise ? I have homemade risers that elevates the bar 1.5 inch up and 1.5 inch forward, I will have to get rid of them if I use the standard gpr, thus loosing my current set up.
Is there a higher bar than the Jimmy Button bend ?

Do not despair

The new setup is so much better. The DH1 upper triple clamp is a sweet blue item. It is also adjustable. The stock upper triple was not. The bar clamp is also blue and is killer. These items allowed me to run my oversized bars. It also kept them about the same height. I got the bolt on mounting kit. There was some minor grinding that needed to be done for it to fit perfect. It also helped me easily access my dip stick. I spent 520$ bucks on this set up and would do it again in a second. The performance and stability it gives me are well worth it. I would recommend spending the money on this upgrade any day. It may seem pricy but it is so worth it.
