Default So id like to buy a stabilizer lol

So had a taste of some tank slapping the other day, and I never want to do that again lol. What would you recommend? Ive seen some olhins, scotts, and gpr. I just don't want to get something junk. I did a search, nothing on reviews just install helps.

ohlins is nice. scotts is better if you r into stoppies/wheelies. ohlins is great if you are keeping it on the ground. gpr is good too but sometimes leak and need to be rebuilt. but sometimes r bullit proof.
with the 3 either way you go will be fine. i really liked my ohlins.

rotary or inline/axial-depends on who u talk to with what they call it. lol but those r the 2 types
the gpr and scotts are rotary and the ohlins is a inline. the ohlins did great, but if hardcore stunting, and i mean like really insane stuff in lots is your thing, it wouldnt be the best option

ohlins is better for the cruises i think

I have a HyperPro steering dampener on my bike and it works great. I've never had a problem with it. I do average riding (usually cruising) but can hit the twisties pretty hard and I've never had an issue. I think all of those brands are pretty reliable, I'd go for the one closest to your desired price point.

im not trying to steer you clear of anything but rash gpr could mean abused, test it first and make sure there are no leaks. but thats a good find if its still working good
