Re: Best place to buy a scotts steering damper?

If you're in no rush one will probably come up in the For Sale forum sooner or later, although if you've already found out why 954s need a damper you are probably wanting to get one quickish. I got a Scotts for around $300 and it has made a huge difference.

Ebay, sometimes you can find good deals. Other times not so good deals.

Re: Best place to buy a scotts steering damper?

I'm scared of ebay, too many crooks. I'm sending my forks to DK this week so I might as well tell them to send a scotts back with the reworked forks.

Thanks for the tip.

Re: Best place to buy a scotts steering damper?

Why Scotts, my GPR is very nice. And the service from GPR is great. I have called them twice and both times was able to talk to a technician about stuff. Check out my gallery pics, I have some pictures of it installed on my 03 954.

Re: Best place to buy a scotts steering damper?

Have a Scotts on my 929, but just purchased a 954 & put on a GBR with the understanding of the shop that if not up to snuff, for I am only a hwy rider, then they will take it back at my cost & bring in a Scott for me.

Not to much milage on the bike as I only got it some 1500 miles ago. Time will tell.

Re: Best place to buy a scotts steering damper?

I've noticed the GPR damper lately but am not familiar with them. I hate being a guinea pig. But to the guy that has one, I guess you like it???
