How many miles are on it now?

When was your last fork or shock service?

Is the rear ride height stock or higher?

What size / brand tires are you running and at what pressure?

FWIW, the ZX10 stock spring rate is 1.0 , for your weight I'd recommend an .85 or .90 depending on your riding style.
Straight line accel.
It starts as wiggle in the bars but has potential to turn into a tankslapper.
12kmiles, never had the shock serviced, the forks are about to get new seals and oil. I'm gonna drop the forks a bit when I put them back in. Rear is stock height. I'm about to be running Mich Road2 190/50 rears and PP front 36F38R. I've always had the problem though, before AND after the suspension setup. My GPR is the only thing that helps but even that doesn't completely eliminate it.
