Well close to it. It still retains approximately the same shape as the original, but the internals and adjustments, sensitivity, and sweep breaks were all fine tuned over the years. The end result is a steering damper that is very reliable, durable, re-build-able and best of all...affordable. The steering damper that has won hundreds of off-road and road racing championships around the world is the same "budget" steering damper you can get at your local dealer.
With applications to cover dirt bikes and sport bikes back to the early nineties, this is your best bet of finding a great damper solution. Many off-road racers, professional / amateurs and weekend warriors all rely on the consistent damping and durability in this original design and prefer to stick with it. "It works great! Why change it?" is something GPR hears all the time. There must be at least 30 to 40 thousand of these GPR V1's out there, and you can count on GPR to be there in the future for all your service and upgrade needs.
This is the steering damper that gave GPR the confidence to offer a no-nonsense return policy and free rebuilds...while you wait. The GPR V1 Stabilizer was the first steering damper to offer customers a wide selection of consistent anodized colors. Freedom of choice! Hey, GPR rides too. They know how everyone's bike is as individual as the owner. Nothing like a little extra personalizing.
