This is my first SS so bear w/ me.


Goofing around feeling out the bike...I was in first gear, brought it up to about 50-60mph and let off the gas...felt a minor wobble from the bars. I did it again a couple more times and completely let off the bars and watched 'em go back and forth. Not very much though, maybe 1/2-1" of bar movement.

Would that be considered "normal" and "in range" for a bike like this w/o a dampener?

Look in your owners handbook or a manual if you have access and check suspension settings, fork protrusion above the triple clamps, and tire pressures, steering head tightness etc.

At the end of last year I bought an ex-demo '06 model with 1500km on it and on riding it home a distance of 130km it felt very rough.

Found that they had the front preload wound completely off.

That's from a major dealer here in Brisbane, Aus!

hey bro...

same thing here. on had the same problem on my 99 zx6r but that was usually when my tires were getting worn.

i dont if its because the bike has brand new tires that weren't balanced properly by kawi or its the bike itself. im glad you brought it up though so i know its not just mine.
