If you had a true tank slapper, you'd likely be dead and not posting this.

You've got head shake due to your brand new tire profile not working with your bikes geometry and suspension. You can't put different tires on without adjusting the suspension to compensate.

I know the difference between A head shake and a tank slapper I've been riding since I was 11 iam now 55. I work as a mechanic /machinist . The tire pressure is right. It the exact same tire that came with the bike. The tire is centered cause I checked it with a tape measure and there is a working steering damper on the bike to. The back tire is almost brand new to. It only happens when the tire is turn slightly and at high speed . All of the work on this bike was done by me. I really don't like using a shop cause there to many shops that have people that have no common sense .

Possibly a few things, defective tire, riding on this tire a little harder than you did on the previous which induced the tank slapper, poor road surface where you was on the gas, the stock dampers on the zx10r are not great in stock form, they look great but they're not great, recheck wheel(s) installation, loose steering head, loose rear swingarm.

Yes it happens when I on the gas also there was poor road surface but I never got one before and have been on the same roads. What brothers me is it happened the 2nd day after the installation.

Another thing I want to talk about is my exhaust when I first bought the bike the Power Commander did not have a setting for the ZX10R so I had to find a setting that would accommodate the engine after installing the Power Commander dropping the cat and installing a short Two Brothers exhaust pipe the bike ran really well I had it tuned and dine out but I still get a little bit of a backfire I can't control it the bike is running a little Rich better rich than lean but it's still there that backfire if I let it happen and I want to eliminate it I'm thinking of having the EDU flash with a Woolrich kit am I going to have to lose the Power Commander when I do this also do you recommend or do you know which is the best flash for the ZX10R 2013.

It is a stock damper it's come with the zx10r 2013 model. I hold the bars tight.

You absolutely can't ride any bike tight. The bike will want you off. Trust me on that one. Can't think of the school right now but someone knows the name. He travels around the country giving classes focusing on this problem.

If hard on throttle and tight on grips and with bumpy conditions then you're stopping the two tires from lining up. Not a tank slapper.

What tire. Not a difficult question. If you can't remember then go look and get back. btw, when I crack the throttle or whatever harder the front always floats. When the throttle is at the very least cracked or any additional THEN the back does the turning and that is what the bike wants. Read that a few times. btw, if tight on the grips the bike will fight the turn.

omg, don't even think of a flash and don't worry about a back fire. Bike does not need the commander and stop trying to dyno whatever.

ok, what tire is the question and ask more questions; I'll answer the truth and won't care if you like the answer or not like the answer. lol

BT016 tires

that's oem on our bike and nothing wrong with it but check the pressure. I think I ran that around 33 psi but I wouldn't go higher than 35.

Ok not the tire. It's your level of riding ability. Read the stuff that I wrote and ask whatever. But buy Code's Twist Wrist II and read that book about 1000 times. Then you have to ride a lot without getting tired; be safe; not act stupid around cagers as they're not impressed with anyone's riding ability, or lack of. Buy Code's book; it's an easy read but the concepts will come slowly.

omg, don't worry about block off plates. Like the blind teaching the blind around here.
