WTB: Scotts or GPR damper for 954

I am going to add a steering damper to my 954. Would prefer a Scotts or GPR.

Anyone have one they aren't using and want to sell it? Did you sell or trade in your 954 and took off the damper before getting rid of the bike? If so, give me a shout please. PM me here or ken dot boyer at gmail dot com.

Thanks!

Re: WTB: Scotts or GPR damper for 954

Goodluck trying to find a used damper for your 954. I searched for months trying a used GPR V4 for a good price before buying a new one. I could not find anyone that had a GPR V4 for a 954 in stock or would order one for me until I found www.naarden.biz in Florida that sells the GPR V1 or V4 for $399 shipped. They dont stock them but order whatever color you choose directly from GPR. It took about a week and a half to get mine. GPR also changed the colors of the V4 for 2010. I just got my solid black GPR V4 this past week.

Re: WTB: Scotts or GPR damper for 954

Well I figured it was worth a try. I've seen ads for them here before, but they are few and far between. I'll give it a try and then bite the bullet after a few days.

Thanks for the tip on naarden.biz - that's the best price I've heard of and will definitely check them out.

[EDIT] No dice - they are 449.10 now. And the Scotts unit is $15 less than the GPR there.

Send an email to [email protected] and ask him if he can get them now. They sell them for $379 for all bikes on their website but his supplier did not have them in stock for a 954 when I ordered mine. He may be able to get them now. Not sure why the place I bought mine raised their price because I got my V4 in last monday.

Re: WTB: Scotts or GPR damper for 954

Wow! I took your advice and emailed Tom at BIOHAZARD CYCLES INC. about an hour ago. He already wrote back and said he will have black GPR v4's on the 7th and, yes, they are $379. That's the best price I've seen for the 954 model. Indysuperbike.com sells them for the same price but doesn't have, and cannot get, 945 models. Thank you, backdoc!

Re: WTB: Scotts or GPR damper for 954

You really can't go wrong with either one. When I was doing research on this, the suggestion I saw over and over was, "Get the one with the best price you can find."

Re: WTB: Scotts or GPR damper for 954

Thanks. I forgot to update this thread - someone emailed me last week and I bought a Scotts stabilizer from a member here. I know there were other members looking for one though - you may want to post some of those parts separately from the 'part out' thread to give the aftermarket mods more attention. Most people see those 'part out' threads and assume it's a bunch of stock parts. Yours is different and you have some great stuff there.
