Just found out the GPR 2.0 stabilizer doesn't work with a Lonestar stem. There is an alignment problem that would require some serious modification. GPR knows about it but I guess I wasn't clear, anyways glad I bought it through my local dealer who took care of it and I'm out nothing. Wish I had gone with the Roll Design stem now. Guess I'll look into the Scott's stabilizer before trying one of the shock absorber type like Denton's.

Well if you goto GPR's Website you can see the GPR model. It mounts on top of your steering stem so you can adjust it while riding. It also uses a different type of dampening in that it has a paddle in a resevoir of fluid, when you steer it moves the paddle in side and the fluid provides the resistance... sort of like paddling a canoe. The Denton, as you know works just like a shock absorber. I guess Motocross guys like the Denton because they don't need to change their resistance on a mx track during a moto but CC courses are filled with variety and its handy to have the adjustment up top. The Denton is about 200 dollars cheaper too :) I just wanted the ease of adjustment in the middle of riding in a race without stopping and getting off the quad.

thanks for the info. I was planning on running a GPR with a Houser stem. Now I'll have to be sure they work before I buy the Houser. If it doesn't, I'll have to go with the Roll.
