Steering Damper Query
Please accept my apologies if this is a repost.
So I have my ZX10R for about 3 weeks now, bought it secondhand.
Never felt properly comfortable on it, the front end just felt very hard over bumps and I never felt entirely in control.
It doesn't help that i am extremely light (55kgs).
So I took it back to the dealer that I purchased the bike from and complained about the feeling of it. They had a look and found that the previous owner adjusted the suspension to be on the hard side. They brought it back to factory spec and it felt fine.
This past Sunday I went riding. I was doing pretty illegal speeds when I hit a slight bump. I ride this road very often and I know this bump, but it was never a bump that I needed to be wary of with any other bike that I rode.
Anyway I went over this bump and had the worst tank slapper I have ever experienced. At the speed I was going at, I could do nothing but pray!
This got me worried though, because I have ridden S1000RRs, Fireblades, GSXR1000s etc on this road and have never had this issue.
Everyone that I have spoken to has told me to get rid of that electronic steering damper immediately and put a manual one on.
What are the inputs of you all?
Sorry for the long story, just want to give you guys a bit of a backstory that lead to my concerns.
