You shouldn't need to change the settings once you get it set. That is why so many like the Ohlins. It's also hidden and out of the way and priced very very well. Unless you just want the look of the GPR up there the Ohlins is the way to go in terms of value.

All aftermarket dampers are adjustable. That's the point of them no?

well, they're for damping. better damping anyway. new damper seemed to take a lot of vibration outta the bars. stock was pretty soft.

not saying they weren't, they just didn't have an obvious adjustment knob that i ever saw.
