Hi,When you say you really "have" this electronics damper is that the word you meant to use? I have a 2014 and a 2016 ZX10R with the ESD. The damper is pretty much useless in stock form in my opinion, similar to the stock manual dampers. On my 2014 I replaced the SCU with the Ohlins race SCU which make it work sufficiently. Unfortunately they didn't yet have one (and still don't to my knowledge) for the 2016. The 2014 and 2016 SCUs have different part numbers and I believe they are not compatible. So, what I did is picked up a used manual damper off of Ebay for 100 bucks and took it to Eric at Velocity Calibrations and had him revalve it. That's been working great for me. As mentioned, you can't just unplug the ESD because it will throw a warning light. I pulled the motor out of the ESD and left it hooked up to the cable and just tucked it under the SCU under my tank so it doesn't throw a warning light. I did a little video on how to take the servo motor out:
I see you have both race SCU on 2014 and manual damper on 2016, if I got that correct.
I have been contemplating on race SCU or manual damper for my 2015, just wanted your opinion which one you felt better between the two.
I am a bit inclined towards race SCU though.
