Hi, F***ing newb here. What does a stabilizer actually do? Stabilize the left and right steering in conditions that otherwise would attempt to jerk it back and forth? Like ruts? That is my guess. Am I correct?

I did not see it from pictures at first. Only after your remark and more searching, those two products actually use same product code on some of the web pages. So not only the same - they are essentially identical.

Many thanks again,

My searches havent turned up much on these on adv, so I will start a new thread in the OC to see if I get any bites from users. If they are as good as their description.....
There seems to be all kinds of adjustability and the savings over the Scotts would buy 2 or 3 rear tires!

Thanks Cat!

Although maybe there are more common so there is more response when looking for info and reviews.

What you think?

I am gonna buy one of these and take my 990 to Utah for a little fun and games.(May 14-21) When I get back I will give ya a report. I talked to Justin and he says they will have one ready to ship next week.

I have had the Scotts TT unit on my 950 for over 50,000 miles so I do have a point of reference.

And if not, than what are differences?
Damper and top triple are the same.

If I remember correctly, the BRP triple raises the bars about 10-15mm - not much.
At 6'3" you might want to think about risers - or higher bars.
The only advice I can give is to try them - you really wont know if its the right decision or not until you try it.

Cheers,
will do. It's kind of awkward situation now, I am in the US, but the bike is back in Europe, where I return soon. So I am trying to get some farkels back with me, but have nothing to test it on right now.
Thanks again for the advice.

Will try and decide; no rush on this one.

Good one,
more advriders suggested that, although a littl ebit costly. But is you are forced by local conditions, ... probably best choice.

System 3 or 5 Promoto?

The 5 adds sweep control, and $80 to the price. Scotts come with this standard. Interested to hear from inmates if this is a useful feature for tight turns.

My brief experience with dampers on sportsbikes (rod-type dampers, simple with a single adjustment) had me always very careful when doing slow turns and u-turns. Even with the damper backed off all the way (assuming I rermembered to do this), there was still enough resistance to make these maneuvers more challenging, or somewhat scary, worst case.
Obviously a sophisticated damper with separate low and high speed damping is a different beast, but I thought that having an adjustable angle of damping, such that no damping was applied at extreme left and right, sounded like a good idea for single-track work. If the low speed circuit can be backed off enough to not have any effect on low speed maneuvers, then maybe the five-way adjustable is overkill. I am happy to be educated on this.

Obviously trying to sell a product, but the Scotts manual says:

"LOCATED ON BOTH SIDES, these are what control the distance of damping force (or sweep), from the center line out to either side until it releases. The stabilizer is then free to move to the steering stop. This allows for easy steering in tight turns.
Key Feature: This prevents arm pump commonly created in other stabilizers.
Road bikes: Allows for no damping resistance, if wanted, when making tight turns "

I would like to hear from users here what they think about this.
