I've got some handling problems with my '04 ZX10. After a certain lean angle she goes from feeling stable and planted to just downright floaty and very vague. I still think this was part of the equation to my low side at that track last September.
A buddy of mine took the bike out after the crash to see if everything was straight. He is a bike mechanic and an ex racer, so I trust his input. He said she was dead stable at 150+, but handles downright weird. I've ridden the bike on the street since and this feeling persists. I thought it was in my head, but my Speed Triple handles just fine from scraping one peg to the other.
The suspension is sprung and valved to my weight and set up for the track. Everything else on the bike is stock sans the GPR steering stabilizer and ZX14 brakes.
When I brought my old suspension to the shop the guy said I had a ZX6 shock on the back. So in my mind there is a possibility that I have a ZX6 lower dog bone, or whatever you want to call it, mount on the bike. What is the difference between the ZX10 one and ZX6 one?
Second, how much of a shim should I use on the back? I think I have about 20mm now.
Should I have the steering stabilizer rebuilt after that crash?
I really don't trust this bike at the moment, because that last crash hurt after some ripped knee ligaments. I would like to get this figured out since I love this bike and don't want to get rid of it any time soon.
