#1 I need a new rear tire and the dealership doesn't have the 190/55 that is the stock size for my bike and recommended a 190/50. Will that size change matter as far as handling goes and will it change my speedo reading?
Get a 190/50, I run Pilot Powers on mine...since it's a new bike you gotta get used to it anyway.
#2 I was thinking of putting A&R racing baffles in my exhaust, I saw it on YOUTUBE and it sounds great. Will that affect an emmission test, perfomance and where do you get them??? The web address is aandrmufflers.com -- The website will not open
I'm getting a set myself, since they're behind the catalytic it won't affect your emissions at all. Try http://www.aandrmotorsport.com/
, their site has been taking shits lately though.
#3 How do you adjust the Ohlins Steering Damper?
Gold knob, clockwise tightens it.
#4 Going from a CBR 954 this ZX 10 is hard to corner/handling, is it me, the bike or do I just need to get used to it?
You need to get used to it. It's not hard at all to corner just different than the Honda.
#5 I haven't tried but can you adjust the brake lever to me tighter, I have to squeeze it half way down before the brakes work (My CBR was instant...like a 1/4 before the brakes engaged. The same is on the rear you have to push it down a ways before it starts to work.
The brakes suck. I bled mine out and it's a tad better, thinking that once I get braided lines it will improve. I ride the street and I'm thinking that should be enough...if it's not then I'll be getting Nissin's of a ZX14 or '07 ZX6R (bolt on replacement) off ebay. The master cylinder on the '06 is pump type so just replacing the calipers should be enough.
I have more quesions but if anyone has any feedback or any other suggestions for the bike that I didn't mention I would be very thankful for any response!!!!!!!!!
