GPR V4 steering stabilizer

9 posts in this topic

I use a GPR 4. I read all of the arguments and talked to people who had both. I have tried both.

I have ridden a Scotts on the rocks in Maine and mine in the mountains of Tn. I like the lower height of the GPR.

If I had to do it all over again.....I would get another GPR for my situation.

For the record, my decision was driven largely by height. I am 5,9" which is not short but with a 30" inseam I notice taller bikes.

The GPR damper dampens in both directions, which is great for high speed racing, but not so good for anything else...

Side question. I have read you have a good bit of experience with KTM's. The 300 I rode felt tall. I am not sure if that was at the seat of that the foot pegs seemed higher. I know the WR technically has a higher seat height. We can talk seats and sag but my question is do they indeed feel taller or am I picking up on a more cramped riding position?

Overall I liked it........but not enough to buy it. I mostly liked the weight.

It's not taller, but the pegs are higher and the bars are closer.

I just bought a gpr v4 stabilizer kit on ebay for my 07 wr450-

The kit is supposedly for an 09 yz- i called gpr before i bought it and they verified that it will fit my 07 wr450f.

If anybody's looking its a smokin deal on them- i got mine on a best offer for $260- nib. He has 3 more left it says-

Got the gpr in the other day and attempted to install it- evidently the triple clamps are different from yz to wr because the distance from the upper clamp nut to the stabilizer mount bolts is to much- hopefully gpr will cut me a deal on the right mount for my wr since they assured me the yz unit would fit without issue.

Gotta say, gpr is a stand up company- they next day aired me the right bar mount for my wr-no charge- just a gentleman's agreement that i send them the bar mount that came with the kit i purchased (they even included a label to mail it back).
