Gen3 ZX-10R Race Bike weired crashes.
I've just upgraded my 636R to a race ready Gen3 10R.
The bike is highly modified, it actually has everything you can think of.
I had my first ride with it last week at Serres Circuit in Greece and I was very disappointed.
I had 2 crashes with it, both was after losing the front, both was very weired as I know this track very well and both crashed happened to me while I was going slower than with my old 636.
I'm sure it has something to do with the front Ohlins suspensions because they didn't give my any feedback, they were very hard and Vague.
After hard braking the front wasn't even close to bottoming up. We tried everything, compression, preload, we even took some oil out of them. It got a little more stable but still the feedback from the front wasn't there. I got more feedback from my stock 636 suspensions.
I wanted to ask the racers among us that use the Gen3 at the track, How would you describe the feedback you get from the bike entering corners at high speed and the feedback in mid corner? I'm trying to figure out if the problem can be solved by setting the suspensions or maybe this bike doesn't provide the feedback I'm used to. I took a 2009 CBR1000RR for a few days at the track and it was amazing, with this one I never knew if I was going to fall or not !
One more thing, my second crash was even weirder than the first. I was going into turn 1 after braking from 260 to like 100, I entered the corner WITHOUT braking or abrupt the throttle, like going with a bicycle, and as I hit the apex the front just jumped on it side for a second or two like there is no traction and I found myself flying into the mud again only more surprised than the first time. I'm using the best front tire Dunlop has (KR's).
Is that what they call Chattering? Do you think all can be fixed with the correct suspensions setup?
Any help will be much appreciated guys.
