GPR dampener play?

I recently purchased a GPR dampener from one of our site sponsors and installed it last night. After install I steered the bars back and forth and noticed at the end of each turn the GPR gives a little. It goes from stiff to not at all when the bars reach the end of the turn. Is this Normal? I donít think it would affect anything other than pulling a U or maneuvering in a parking lot. Any comments or similar experiences? Oh and it's the 1.0 basic version

GEN 4: Brembo HP calipers, Brembo HP T-Drive Rotors, Brembo RCS master cylinder, Fren Tubo SS lines, re-valved Ohlins damper, Ohlins TTX shock, Yoshimura case covers/frame sliders, Yoshimura 3/4 R77D Ti exhaust, BMC filter, Puig DB, Renthal Clip ons/sprockets, attack rearsets, Guhl flash, kawi kit throttle, Ballistic EVO2 8 cell, Annitori RL quick shifter, Dunlop rubber.

Never noticed it on mine but maybe there is air trapped in it, it may work itself out

I am pretty sure that is part of the design, mine does it too and it was brand new. They must think that if the bars are that close to lock and the bike is still moving that you are no where near them.

Well, I started out with nothing and I still have most of it...

Maybe mine does it too and I never noticed it. I will check it later.
