Thaks a lot for the answers guys.
Roryh, friend, have spent 5 years without bike (like a simple mortal), now I have a 2005 cbr 600RR black/grey with out any change. here in Peru we have, since two years ago, a lot of new bikers. But from the new school (without class). it is so popular here to import bikes from the USA, the problem is this, "SALVAGE BIKES", you know wath I mean. Also here you need a unique license for any bike from 50cc to 1800cc.
I´ll send pics a soon as can.
where, there is my "problem": I ride one bike after 5 year, the last was a 2002 fireblade (954), I feel my bike too much light, specially in the steering, in the street when I turn to left or right I feel like the bike wants to fall, I have not confidence in the steering. 2 friends of mine test the bike and they dont feel any problem. Im thinking in a damper but, there is any other thing that I can try before?.
Thanks a lot.

Do your friends weigh the same as you? Perhaps your suspension is set up for a person of different weight and that's why you're experiencing issues and they're not.

What tyres do you have on the bike? They tyre can have a big impact on the handling, is it the same tyre front to rear?

Sneddy,
thanks for the answer, my weight is 85kilos, and my friends weight is similar. About my tyres are new Pirelli diablo (standard size front and rear).
About the suspension, I don´t know too much, is the setup is too soft or to hard , what is the consecuence?.
What suspension setup (suggested) for a guy with 85 kilos?
thanks a lot
Lucho

Lucho !!

Hola Amigo, Como esta? So good to see you around

This is what you need for your bike

http://www.solomotoparts.com/catalog/Scotts-Steering-Damper-for-Honda-CBR600RR-05-06-p-17984.html

Thats if your tyres, air pressure, forks are all A-Ok !! I suggest that you ride another 600RR first

Keth....
Amigo como estas tu?
Next week i´ll be in the USA and I thinking in buy the scotts dumper. I have new tyres, the forks look ok but I feel the bike so nervous.
In a straight line I make a countersteering and feels the bike like a bicycle, without weight.
I want to be sure about the dumper, you know is expensive.
I´ll try to test another 600RR, maybe is just me and dont the bike.

New tyres that haven't been squared off tip in very aggressively, I'd say that's what you're experiencing. I'd give it some time before you add any mods, flickability is something people generally like.

Good point about new tyres Justin, but I forget to tell something, when I boght the bike I feel the same with the old tyres, that is the major reason to change both.
I agree with you and GG about the time, five years its a lot of time. Anyway this weekend I´ll check the suspension settings, maybe the last owner change any.
Thanks a lot for your comments,
Lucho

I found the problem in the bike.:dance:
I was in the USA for two weeks and bought break pads, K&N air filter, tankpad, a helmet, a Jacket, bla, bla, bla...and two new bar ends.
When we remove the old bar ends I found two things:
1. they were heavy
2. the left one was more heavy that the right one.
The new ones are so light and after made the change, the balance was perfect in any situation. I don´t know why or how but the last owner change the original bar ends for the heavy ones.

Now I have a perfect bike, pictures, as soon as I can.

My money is you finally got used to it Lucho :p

Heavy bar ends = placebo !


The newer 600's do steer as light as bicycles. That's just how they feel. Great for fast tipping int oa corner. :)

Where in Peru do you hail from, I remember seeing some beautiful riding roads when I was there 6 months ago.... along with some absolute disaster roads :p
