Gen4 geometry thread is great, hoping to learn here.
Thanks for detailed response Carlos...Seems you have done a lot of research with this bike.
My personal opinion, bearing in mind I haven't really tested the bike (no track day yet), it seems to turn in much quicker than the GSXR1000 K5. Running 190/55 rears on both, but different tyres and it's been over a year since I rode the K5.
I noticed this the first time I tried the 2011 ZX10R when it first came out.
Just something to get used to and I have already.
The front end feels wrong on my bike at the moment on stock suspension settings...Don't know how old the oil is but suspect its never been changed.
Pogo effect reacting to every bump and imperfection..Will try taking out some comp / reb damping.
Also could not get accurate sag setting.
Basically, the springs don't seem to react to weight being applied to them whether preload is taken all the way out or set all the way in.
All the way out, reduces the pogo effect slightly but there is still the damping problem.
The best I could do with the sag on the front was 22mm even with preload wound all the way in, also are the preload adjusters supposed to just keep spinning after they reach the max value on this bike?
Found that weird as the Ohlins R+T carts on my GSXR have a hard stop.
Anyway, so I think I need stiffer springs although the front feels rock solid and I'm wary of stiffening it further.
I have much work to do on the bike to set it up (slowed down by this charging system fault), but I believe the base is good as once settled in a turn feels very confident on the front.
This is all with using the stock shock at the moment as I have not fitted the Bitubo.
Need to fix all the electrical gremlins before tuning the bike.
