    Does the OEM Showa suspension come with top/bottom out springs? Tried researching via the web and found nothing at all on the aftermarket.hitachiastemo.com site :/ Felt like trying to get tech info on Ohlins without being a dealer. Why? I've been tuning my road suspension and reached 19 mm...

    Hello everyone! I have a 2012 zx10r that came stock with the Ohlins damper. I was wondering if anyone else picked up a better one. I still manage to get a decent wobble at around 155mph with the damper maxed out. If that’s something that other gen 4 owners have experienced what fixed it? PSA...

    I just bought my 2010 ZX10r from a short guy that lowered the bike with a lowering link. I am looking to raise it back up to stock height, anyone have any decent videos on how to do so? I know I can find stock links on Ebay for around $20 but installing it I am pretty lost

I was running a stock setup on track an it felt just fine, however I decided to upgrade my shock to Ohlins (KA345) since it should have been better.

    Scratching my head on this one, any suspension experts? I put some Carrozzeria wheels on.

The fact that the unsprung weight is...
