    Once again a fascinating insight into suspension and the should I? shouldn’t I? side of it. For me who does not mind trying stuff out,this has given me the explanations to what i felt happening on my ZX10R (04) and the steered me in the right direction to achieving what i want from it on the road where in all honesty is where i spend most of my time.
    Thanks Dave for taking time out to do this

      I’m happy to read that you made sense of the advice and found your own way to a much safer ride and more enjoyment of the ZX-10!

        Initially after servicing forks changing front springs to suit my weight and slowing rear rebound down as per your advice I lowered the front 5mm through the tripples which was way too extreme.I did this to get get the race stance on the bike without increasing rear preload too much. I found that the steering was way too stiff at low speed having decreased the rake?. I fetched back up to 3mm and settled there. Nice and composed at both high and low speed on majority of roads.
        Once again a happy chap
        cheers
