Re: Tankslapper cure

I would not have called it a cure... more of a proactive measure to take to help avoid them. A damper combined with smooth operation of your bike will do wonders but, we have no control over road surfaces which at highspeeds can do interesting things.

Re: Tankslapper cure

I didnt read the article, but im sure it talks about the all mighty "steering dampner".* let just say that the oscillation caused by momentum and gravity just gets worse if you try and fight it.* Ive gotten into small tank slaps coming out of a turn and ive found the best way is to get rid of it is to just relax and ease off the throttle and the momentun will decrease causing the oscillations to die out (for any mathematics people out there this is called signum).* The dampner definitely does help, but you can help the dampner also. right:
