GPR V1 Damper
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.
GPR V1 / V2 Dirt Bike Application
The V1-V2 designation is V1- standard top-mount dirt bike application. Damper mounts to the specially machined GPR top bar mount. The customer will use their stock bottom bar mount and hardware or with the cast clamps, the bottom mount is cast into the top-clamp. V2 designation is the V1 damper is mounted underneath, below the handlebars. The machined GPR bar mount will raise the bar height approximately 1.5-1.75 inches. Since the damper in now below the handlebars the frame mount height is quite shorter than on the V1 application. Frame mounts for the dirt bike applications are all machined and welded steel. Stainless steel pin with aluminum collar tops it off with the connection to the damper.
GPR V1 ATV Application
The GPR V1 is used for the ATV applications with a few modifications to better suit the condition and forces produced from the much heavier quads. Modifications for the V1 ATV damper is a high strength stainless steel empeller vane and the elimination of sweep-breaks. Billet machined heavy-duty mounting plates ensure a stable and secure mounting point for the damper.
GPR V1 / V2 Kit Types
V1 Standard Bar Kit – An above the bar kit, uses the GPR V1 stabilizer. Bolts to the stock triple clamp and uses the std. 7/8” handle bar. Maintains the stock bar height. All std. 7/8” bars with a crossbar will be required to “bow the crossbar. These kits include a GPR V1 Stabilizer, handlebar mount, frame bracket and all the mounting hardware.
V1 Fat Bar Kit – An above the bar kit, uses the GPR V1 stabilizer. Bolts up to the stock triple clamp and uses the 1 1/8” fat bar. Maintains the stock bar height. These kits include a GPR V1 Stabilizer, handlebar mount, frame bracket and all the mounting hardware.
V2 Fat Bar Kit – A Sub-mount kit, mounts below the handlebars. Using the V1 stabilizer and a cradle-style bar mount, bolts up to the stock triple clamp and uses the 1 1/8” handlebar. Depending on which model bike, raises the bar height anywhere between ¾”-1 ¼”. These kits include a GPR V1 Stabilizer, handlebar mount, frame bracket and all the mounting hardware.
V2 Pro Kit – A Sub-mount kit, mounts below the handlebars. Using the V1 stabilizer, a cradle-style bar mount bolts up to a GPR upper triple clamp. These kits include an upper triple clamp, Bar mounts, Frame bracket and the GPR V1 Stabilizer.
