My name's Craig, live in San Diego CA. I've been riding since Jan 08. I had an 07 gsxr600 and loved it. Sold it early this year. Back in the market now and I've got my eye on the new 636. Hopefully I came to the right forum to meet some new people and answer any questions I may have. Cheers.

The new 636 is gorgeous, comes with electronic stabilizer and ABS brakes(good for street) and a bunch of other upgrades. Welcome Bud.

Thanks! You mention electronic stabilizer, is that the new steering damper for the 636?

Curious why a lot of Video reviews on YouTube mention their Con about the new 636 is that there's no steering damper. Not that YouTube is the source of all correct knowledge, but why does this seem to be a common "error"?

The new 636 does not come with a steering damper. The new ZX-10R is the one that has the electronic steering damper and that thing is sweet.
