Well shit, if you are the expert why you asking us? It's not like any of us here do suspension for a living or anything...

Just givin' ya grief bro

The bottom line is you need to get the basic set-up correct first & foremost before you begin you start trying to alleviate the chatter issue. Moving sag numbers into areas they are not supposed to be in order to compensate for blowing through the stroke etc is not going to give you the results you expect. You have to get the basics right first. Depending on your pace you may just not have enough suspension to get the job done. What kind of lap times are you running at Ricardo Tormo?

That's basically 20 seconds off the lap record. Most Intermediate riders could do that on a bone stock ZX-10R and you should not being having any chatter problems at that kind of pace. As I mentioned previously I would start back at the basics again. Make sure the ride height both front and rear has not been tampered with and then reset the sag.

Shoot for 38-40mm of rider sag in the front

For the rear I would personally start at around 30mm of rider sag. I have seen riders at or near race pace run less, but at 20 seconds off the pace you are likely not doing yourself any favors by doing that especially since we actually lower the rear ride height by removing 4mm of spacer at the shock mount to correct the geometry and aid in drive grip. Keeping the bike taller in the rear with less sag is not what I would normally suggest on this particular bike.

Lol man 1.30 was motogp record, I dont know who you get around with. I know very good riders who ride 1.45-1.46, I dont know what you are saying mate.

I will try different tires, pirellis, I will try also different sag if that doesnt cure it.

Thx for your help
