2016 ZX10R Jumpy Ride
Hi all, this issue is driving me nuts.
I bought the bike 3 weeks ago, was a demo bike with 200miles on the clock. Everything was smooth, ran the rest in to the book. Serviced, no problems. Then stably 1700 miles, I pulled over at a service station and when setting off the bike started to feel funny on the turns, not smooth and kind of Jumpy. This got worse to being Jumpy/bumpy whilst riding in a straight line.
Hands off, still goes in a straight line but with the bumping. The bike then started making loud rub noise from the front Right pad. I took it to the closest dealer and they said the right shock had been altered between 1/2-1 rev to the other. He set it back to stock, but still the same issue.
I took it to two Kawasaki dealers and they both say nothing is wrong with the ride, that's how they are, but I insisted it was much smoother until it all started. I then went to a local garage, who took the brakes off and said that they were catching on the pads too harshly. After that, the ride has eased up a bit from the front but it's still bumping (like going over small bumps every now and again, it's not constant, and worse on the throttle).
I'm going to suspension specialist tomorrow to get it all checked out, but I'm worried that the front wheel could have a slight buckle (but it goes in a straight line).
