Happy to finally register on here. I'm 32 and live about 30min directly east of Cleveland Ohio. I've grown up riding everything with wheels. As I grew older & began riding street motorcycles I grew found of the Kawis. First street bike I learned to ride on was an 03 slammed and stretched gsxr 750. Shortly after that I purchased a 97 zx9r. Over the years I've ridden many sport bikes. Sad to say no busa, zx14, h2 s1000rr or really any liter bike or bigger after 2008 models. I sold the zx9r, went 6yrs without another bike & had a kid. Well my current daily driven vehicle is paid off.
Coincidentally it's that time of year you get that itch for 2 wheeled fun & freedom. I never lost that itch, each year that passed without one made me feel like a little of me dies each year that passes without. Well I'm thrilled to say I snagged a mint condition cosmetically & mechanically 2005 gen c2 zx10r. Practically un molested, aftermarket wind screen & a muzzy slip on. She's got just over 17,000 miles on the odometer & I paid $4500 which seemed fair for its excellent condition & also 1 owner who sold it at age 43. I was surprised that a steering damper hasn't been installed yet on this. I can't do a single Google search or forum troll without everyone saying first mod must be a damper. Guess I already know what I need to do. As for my opinion on the bike I love it! The power, its agility & speed for being damn near 15yrs old is nothing shy of impressive.
I'm Interested in steering damper recommendations for this model. It'll mostly be street ridden, the occasional 1,320ft shot & rural winding roads. I don't see me ever road course/lap attacking with this bike if that helps narrow down my options. I'm sure theres already posts about this very question but this is 2019.

Thanks & Enjoy The Ride

Thank you, I tried but it wouldn't work from my phone. I also can't figure out how to delete or edit posts on here. Never had issues on other forums I'm registered on.
