Default GPR Stabilizer Rebuild?

I know GPR says to have it serviced every year but how often is everyone servicing there stabilizers? Have one and they say the first service is free so thinking about sending away just not sure seems to work perfectly fine what you guys think is it worth it.

Slow degradation of the oil will result in the differences not being noticiable because it's such a slow process. Getting it back you MAY notice a huge difference. This is something that I run into regularly with fork and shock services. Or the gradual squaring off of rear tires. You don't realize you're losing performance until you get a refresh. If it's free I'd get it done.

Definitely hear it all the time when people switch tires and are like "OMG THESE TIRES ARE SO MUCH BETTER" and they don't consider that they just got off of squared-off, worn and over-heat-cycled tires.

If it's free and it's been a year I'd definitely send that sucker off. Pretty sure it's only $25 to get it done anyway and, like changing fork oil and brake fluid, it seems like it's well worth getting it done at regular intervals.

Some of our guys that race WERA & CCS run GPR on their bikes. One guy went 3 years before he noticed he needed his freshened up. Another one sent his out after one race season and said it was night and day.
If it's free (or even pretty cheap) it's probably a good idea to have it checked.
