theres bottom mount,top mount,and rotary its all up to your preference on my off road bikes i use rotary because they seem to be the most restrictive for the street i use top mounted dampners.dampners are generaly used on track for tankslappers,headshakes at high speeds,or just simply to slow down your sterring,just lean towards a fully adjustable unit.have a top mount ohlins from kyle racing one of the best out for sale in the forum classifides check it out.

We're REALLY going to do this again? Awright why not.... GPR Is-IN MY OPINION- the best damper/dampener/stabilizer I've ever owned. I've had the Scotts/Ohlins rotary, an Ohlins telescopic, A HyperPro telescopic, A Daytona telescopic, and a Storz. I have found that the GPR is beyond perfect, it has a lifetime warranty, and lifetime servicing. check out the site -www.gprstabilizer.com The best you know is the best you've tried. Yeah, end of debate.

I love my Scott's sub mount kit. I have always ran them on my offroad bikes also. The nice mount setup was an added bonus. I have also used the gpr ones on the offroad stuff which were also nice but I prefer the Scotts.
