Anyone running a GPR steering sabilizer?

If so how do you like it?

I'm headed for Baja in January and would like to hear any feedback. I have a 09 GS as well and have not had it in deep sand as yet. I've had a steering stabilizer on most of my dirt bikes. (I hate deep sand!!)

I emailed them and asked about the mounting. The kit comes with lower bar mounts the raise the bars 3/4"
Here are some pics of the mounting set-up they sent me.

Looks like the BMW tank bag won't fit. I like my tank bag "the dealer gave it to me" so it looks like a Hyer Pro stabilizer for my GSA

Good point. I didn't think about the tank bag not fitting...

I like mine, just put on last month, had to use hydraulic press at work to take out old stem and put their stem in,
Had to find 7mm allen wrench, for their bolts, one in the whole STATE (G)

their bar supports are slightly higher not more than 1/2" cannot notice difference. I like the way GPR mounts, slick, out of the way, high quality. I don't see how it would interfere with a tank bag, unless bag made of steel.

I am not doing hard off road, however it helps in soft dirt/gravel, and I like it on the highway, I can relax more knowing the steering is dampened. I run it pretty high dampening when on Interstate.

otherwise its not a huge necessity. It will help when tire fades/wheel/tire out of balance, bearings start to go.

I have one on my ZX-14 and it works miracles. I have also been thinking about putting on on the GSA.

Ralle-Moto has one!

Ralle-Moto makes one for the R1200gs. It is a nice setup. I have one on order and hope to have it soon. Here is a link to it.... http://www.rallemoto.com/contents/en-us/d23.html. I have read somewhere that there is enough clearance to use a tankbag with this setup. They are on the expensive side....around $700.

Cool2 Hyperpro from Epmperf.com

+1 on the Hyperpro.

I really don't like the idea of messing with the stearing stem for the top mounted options.

Hyperpro is working great on my 2012 GS.

I have the Hyperpro on my '09 GSA, but had the pleasure of driving a 800gs with the ralle-moto kit. The RM is far superior and worth the price difference (though I bought my new Hyperpro kit here in the fleamarket for $150).

While my opinion is that any steering damper is an improvement when riding offroad, the RM kit is better because it has a return to center setting...trust me it's a big difference...between that and the fact that you can adjust it on the fly it's worth the extra $ if you've got it.

GPR has a $100 off coupon for the rest of 2012 on their website. The GPR for my GSA is $550 - $100 sounds like a smokin deal to me. I'm gonna order one! That is significantly less than I paid for my last one.
