piston style stabilizers...

I currently have a Hyperpro active steering dampner on my bike...which i love..but i'm planning on making it a more track only bike for next year...from what I've read...piston style dampners will damage alot easier(in a getoff) apposed to a scotts and gpr style stabilizer....plus they are supose to be a lot easier to work on...

so... should I think about getting a different dampner before the season starts? ...or wait to see what happens?...or am I just worring to much... anyone have experience with both styles that they can give me the pro's and the con's? I just really hate to get ride of the hyperpro...but if it's going to save me some money in the future...i'll do it

What you are saying is true, the rotary(scotts) style damper do usually protect themselves better in a "getoff" situation. I chose to get an Ohlins damper and have not had any problems with it, but I haven't crashed with it either. In my opinion there is no reason to spend more money on a damper, when you already have one that you are satisfied with.

how could this possibly save you money in the future? If you buy a new one now, or later IFF your hyperpro gets wadded. Cant lose anything by waiting my friend. Verdict: dont buy a new one.

well..i could sell mine now... and buy one that is more crash worthy...before it's too late...

i'll probably just stick with my hyperpro though... i don't plan on going down that hard anytime soon(i hope!)... and I guess if i do...i'll probably have more things to worry about than a $400 dampner
