wrong forum, try searching/asking in beasts.

Scotts and GPR are on offer. IIRC, GPR has a lower profile.
Google comparisons.

Search the Forum for Rally Moto. There have been a few posts in the past year. It is what I put on my 09 GS and love it.

That Rally Moto unit is some great-looking kit. How is it at parking lot speeds?

No problem at all, don't even know it is there. The key is the adjustability, when you don't need it, turn the dial down to 1.
Turn up the dial for more stability when you want it. Big difference on the freeway at speed in the wind or passing big trucks.......no wobbly feeling.
I also dial it up when in the dirt and sand. The steering damper along with a 21" front (I change rims for more serious dirt rides) make me a better rider than I really am.

It's fine for the slow speeds. But have heard from an inmate who has trouble with it in a cold climate. I love mine and haven' t any issues even on frosty mornings.

I got a HyperPro from EPM for my '11 GSA, The wind turbulence behind the cement truck at speed and cross winds etc will dissappear. The wanna be tank slapper loose wobbly feel in the bars is gone and makes it very easy to ride.

I installed a Scotts damper on my '12 GSA using the GorillaZilla mount, and it works perfectly.

Was just out yesterday in high winds and mixed roads. Actually first time on gravel roads and it felt like new asphalt. Plus no diddling around with my handlebar risers and tankbag set up to fit it.

Do y'all order directly from HyperPro or is there a retailer that sells 'em?

Thanks,

I too used a Scotts with the Gorillazilla mount. HOWEVER after e-mailing them and making sure they had one for my 2007GSA, they sent me the wrong mount. After trading e-mails and pictures they finally gave up and offered my money back. Instead I chose to weld up the holes and re-machine an drill new holes to make it work. I also had to make a new lower clamp. The main thing was that I already had a Scotts dampener. I think the RM2 discussed here is a very clean looking mount and dampener if you already don't have a dampener it would be the way to go.
