The function of a steering damper is to dampen or control the side-to-side sweep motion of the handle bars. Tank-Slappers, high speed wobbles, and hitting any road debris should be absorbed and controlled by the steering damper. As well as reducing fatigue and arm-pump. Unfortunately stock steering dampers are usually of the linear type, not adjustable and fall way short of doing what a proper steering damper should do.
We firmly believe it’s better to control a rotary motion with a rotary damper, not a linear damper. Our patented rotary design and fluid control is implemented into 3 designs that were created for the best fit and function for dirt bikes, sport bikes, ATVs and Harley Davidsons.

The GPR v4D is the fourth generation steering damper designed for dirt bikes and adventure bikes, but is also used on a couple of hybrid applications. Its compact and slim design allows for the damper to be mounted below the handlebars, out of harm’s way, without raising the bars more than an inch. Frame mounts are machined steel with stainless steel pin, and billet aluminum machined bar-mounts. Choose the GPR Pro Kit option and you’ll get a black anodized machined top-clamp.
The GPR v4S, the fourth generation of the GPR sport bike application. This is specifically designed for sport and street bike applications and uses our patented pin-less mounting system. Slim design and large visible adjustment dial allows you to adjust the damping settings while you ride. Vital in changing conditions and temperatures. Since is debut in 2007, this kit has become a favorite of amateur and professional road racers worldwide. The Harley Davidson applications uses the same V4S steering damper and includes a beautifully machined billet top-clamp.
This is GPR’s first generation design of a rotary steering damper, well close to it at least. It still retains the original footprint but internal valving and fluid controls have evolved over the years. One center dial, adjustable as you ride and completely rebuildable. Take the V1 damper and mount it under the bars for the V2 version. Mounting the damper under the bars give the taller riders the bar height they are looking for and keeps the shorter post mount flex to a minimum.
This is a new product we’ve developed over the last season for a few select Dirt Bikes and Adventure Bike models. Machined aluminum and urethane anti-vibe inserts held together with two steel bolts keeps the vibrations down to a minimum. Primarily designed for Dirt Bikes / Adventure Bikes that come from the factory with solid bar-mount top clamp, but are now being expanded to other models.
