Default Steering Stablizers

     

Who makes these and what are my choices? I want to put one on my 450 for woods riding.

In no particular order:
WER
RTT
Scotts
Emig Racing
GPR

Each approaches the task a little differently, but any is a good investment if you ride in the woods or desert.

There is a long running poll over at woodsracer that pretty much covers the pros and cons of the WER, Scotts and GPR products.

There's lots of discussion on this (it's all over KTMTalk)

In order of most popular (from what I can tell)

Scotts
GPR
WER

I just got a killer deal on a WER myself...it's sitting right here on my desk. I'm very interested to see how much of a difference it makes.

I am looking at the Scott low mount one. Seems like a better mounting position.
If anyone can get me a killer deal on this without the mounts it would be great. I can fab the parts I need for mount.

Keep an eye on the KTM Talk classifieds (probably thumpertalk too)

and you might be able to find one.

The unit alone is always up for sale on the District site I go to. I will watch it for you and let you know.

I have a GPR myself and I love it. The minute I take off I know if it isn't set and I set it. I dial it down to the lowest setting for loading and maint. in the garage. It makes it easier to manuver. I like the GPR because you can adjust it very easy on the fly. The two most popular ones are the GPR and Scotts at the desert races. You won't find too many bikes without them. We had 440 entries at the last enduro last week. I presume we will have over 500 at the national this weekend.

I've been kicking the idea of getting a WER for MX. Has anyone used these in that application? I only know of one guy, and swears by it. He rides a KTM525 I ride a YZ250. So getting on his bike and checking it out deosn't really tell me anything. All these units push $400, and I want some feedback before I dump that on something that might not be right for a two stroke MX racer.

Look at my second post and read about them. I guess people use them for MX also with great results. They are all in the same price range depending on mounting and extras you may want.

Vet, if you get one installed, I wouldn't mind checking it out at the Red Bud ride later this year. I have been contiplating one of those for years, but never had the chance to try one, and didn't want to spend that much money and then not like it.
