Just got GPR damper installed - something is amiss - April 25, 2008, 08:53 PM

Just had my damper installed...something is weird

It keeps going past the 8 setting and does not stop...it would click at the 8....than keep going.

i barley notice the difference in the stiffness of the handlebars, is it possible I received a bad unit from the vendor?

I have almost no experience with dampers aside from the Scotts I recently put on my bike. On that one, the slow damping adjustment makes around two full revolutions before hitting the stop for completely stiff. You should definitely be able to stiffen the slow damping up enough to feel it. Sounds like Carnage knows what's going on so I'd take him up on his offer.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

The gpr dampers don't stop, but you should be able to feel the difference from 1-8. That must be an older style, the new ones have 15 clicks.

I rode it last night and definetly felt the difference.

Also at a standstill while jostling the bars back and forth and turning the knob it get stiffer by each turn.

I have version 1.0, probably the earliest release. All is well.

Yeah, it only goes up to 8. It will continue to spin, there is no stopper. If you go PAST 8, it'll be as loose as 0 when you're between 8 and 1.
