Hi all!! A month ago I purchased a 08 Kawasaki ZX10R (3rd gen) as an only-track bike. It has some goodies, *brake pump, fairings, 520 transmission, front and rear revalved, etc.*
The day to test the bike arrived, *it was in Cheste, Spain.* Sunny day, warm, 30+ celsius degrees.*
Dunlop KR106 comp. 1 front, kept at 2.3 bar during the whole day
Bridgestone V02 medium rear, kept at 1.7 bar.*
I started adapting myself to the bike. The thing is, *when I wanted to push a little, the bike chatters as hell, it feels harsh mid cornering, and that obviously keeps me away from riding hard.*
Previously I had put new fork seals and new ohlins 1309 oil, 490ml/leg as per manual.
First I thought the rear was topping out and that was causing the chattering, *but I took a good amount of preload away and that didnt solve anything. Then I thlught i could have poored too much oil in the fork, *but I checked and its ok. Also tried closing rebound rear, nothing. I have to say the front rim has a hit, *and the sidewall is bent. However no air is lost, *nor does it vibrate in straight line or releasing the bars. It was balanced without problems. The hit is on the right side, *and chattering happens on both left and right handside corners.*
Dynamic SAG is 27mm front and 25mm rear. I send you a video where the chattering can bee noticed and some pics of the tyres.
Has there been a case like this? I have heard this bike is pretty difficult to set up suspension wise, but I think this is not normal.
What could you recommend?
Here is the video
Thank you very much!!!
