The tank slapping is more a function of chassis geometry than anything else, you won't get rid of it entirely until you send the crap damper into Kyle racing for a revalve. They did mine for under $100 with a 24 hour turn around, shipped to Alaska. It transformed the ride, and the damper works as it was designed, before the bloodsucking lawyers got involved.

:+1: Or you can do like me and sale your stock damper and buy a Scott's or GPR which by the way, work 10 times better IMO and are a lot more adjustable and user friendly!

have had a re-valve,was more concerned with settings of rebound and compression etc to deal with u.k roads i ride.cheers for the heads-up on the damper though although i nearly found out the standard one was crap the hard way !

right there with you, I hit it once coming out of 2nd and I had enough head shake I almost lost it, first day owning a 10 and my damper was all the way open haha. Never had to adjustable one before because I always road a honda or suzuki or yamaha before this bike other then my 3 months on a 05 636 which went good bye LOL. But yeah I got mine rebuilt and it was night to day
