Maybe the ride height is to low. Are you sure that the ride height is the same as with the stock shock?

Hi,

1999 ZX6r G2 - fitted ohlins rear shock last weekend & since then have noticed a definate tendancy for the bike to run extremely wide in turns where before it was prolly a bit too quick into turns.

Any ideas before I start playing with things?

Hi,

Unfortunately in my haste to fir the ohlins, I forgot to compare the old + new!!!

Gotta remeasure it seems.

Cheers

Mad Si,

It's either you have too little compression damping or the rear ride height is too low, giving the bike a "nose-high" attitude, or you have too much compression damping, making the suspension "pack down" -- either will make the bike run wide.


Hope that helps.

Update,

Just measured it and it's set to approx 4mm below standard ride height so no wonders I've had probs!!!

Gonna tweak over the next couple of days & report back :)

Good to hear, Mad Si -- try raising it to +4 up to +8mm, made a world of difference on my J1 [^]. I hardly countersteer, more just lean in the direction of the turn (of course my hand pushes the bar a bit as I lean), and she turns without a fuss. [^]
