I've got a 2001 ZX6R and I've noticed that when I hit a significant bump (e.g. (for anyone in the UK) on the crappy M42!!) at high speed (100mph or more) the bike continuous to occilate with the energy of the bump for a considerable distance making the bike feel just a tad unstable [:0]. It settles down quicker under 100 mph and it's not noticeable at 80 mph. I have a pending speeding issue so I'm not going so fast now but was wondering if this is a sign of bad things? It's been in and out of the garage for check ups etc but they can't find anything wrong.

I have no knowledge of how to do that!! I'm not mechanically minded, can you advise me what to do?

Cheers :)

To increase rebound damping at the fork, turn the rebound damping adjuster at its top clockwise until the adjuster clicks.



To increase rebound damping at the shock, turn the rebound damping adjuster at its bottom clockwise until the adjuster clicks.



Make small adjustments of only a click or two at once, and then test. To learn more about these adjustments, check out sportrider.com.

Just a quickie to make sure I don't do something daft and kill myself....I presume the adjusters on top of each fork arm are for that fork arm, so if I adjust the rebound on the left I do the same on the right?

You ought to turn them in (clock-wise) until they stop and then turn them both out the same amount. It is possible that somebody fooled with one of them in the past and they are not the same. This could also cause it to do funny things on a hard bump at high speed.
