hey new to this!!
i notice everyone has like 05 models and was wondering if theres anyone who has a 99 zx6r who has any secrets to tell me about them. like improving them!!
i have a yoshi 3 2 on it.

i have read that there prone to wallow a bit in the turns, and to increase the pre-load on the rear shock by a few turns (to put more weight on the stiff front end) as well as adjusting the compression damping by four clicks and the rebound damping by two. apparently With those minor changes, the front end has more weight. better riding.meant to feel more planted and stable, providing me with the feedback needed to maintain high cornering speeds. It also meant to keep the back end of the bike from bobbing and weaving in the turns over rough pavement or during on/off throttle transitions

anyone??

There's not a ton of difference between the 98-99 models and early 2000ish Zx's and ZZR'r. I'm not aware of any problems such as wallowing. That could be due to wrong suspension setup as earlier stated or even rider input. I'd make sure it's tuned properly and has a good set of tires and ride the heck out of it. It's a great bike and doesn't give much away to the newer bikes.
