Oil weight can make a difference. This is assuming that we are all using the same oil weight that came stock with the GPR. I keep mine on 3. Funny thing is, I used to keep mine on 3 on the 1-6 version. (but the old one was serviced twice and could of had different oil weight in it)

The best thing to do is try them all and find out which one works best for you. I found between 3 and 4 were the best for me.

how beneficial in the GPR?

I'm thinking of getting one for my stunting, but not completly sold on it. What setting is best for no hands cruising?

You'll not regret it and many stunters including Kane Friesen uses them. http://www.kaneone.com/

For some reason GPR didn't make their damper to fit with Vortex triples. Doesn't make sense, make a race part that doesn't fit with what probably is the most common race triple clamp.

What happens if you turn it up too high? How does the bike feel?

OK, on my race bike (not a stunt bike, or streetbike) I adjust the settings for every track, whay because there is a varience in the way the bike handles and geometry of my bike for every track. Secondly I ride half as hard at TDs as at Race weekends so that affects my settings. For street riding (when I had a 600rr for the street) I kept it up around 4-5, but in reality there are conditions that apply such as road surface, smooth or rough (If I am riding in DC I set it up higher than around my neighborhood) bike geometry if the bike is setup short and has a large tooth sprocket set I have to set the stabilizer higher because the front wheel is more likely to skip and hop under acceleration. Further More braking comes into effect, if the bike is setup short or hard for a certain track, I am working the front end much harder and to stabilize that requires a higher setting.

After all that, I suggest you find a large parking lot and test you settings. Weave through some cones, brake hard, and accelerate hard with your body forward (no wheelies) find where the movement on the front is limited most without obstructing your ability to turn....

Also, Dampers wear out after a few years send it back to get reworked, and on a weekly basis rotate the settings from 1 through 8 and back a few times, this will save your damper from stincking and ruts in adjustment.
Many people do not take care of their damper and do not belive this last statement (foolish tools) try adjusting yours tonight, if you have not adjusted it in a while you will notice the "jump" in the adjuster, this is not just GPR all stabilizers have this problem.

The bike will become more difficult to steer at high speeds and will not "fall" into turns properly.
