  • Steering Dampers

    Hi, I have an Ohlins steering damper from a previous bike that I'd like to fit to a Z1000. But I'm having trouble finding a bracket for it, still waiting to hear back from the Ohlins importing ppl.

    Does any one know where I could source one or even get one made up?
    Before I wobble off into the bush.
    Cheers

    Take it to any bike shop etc, they should be able to match a kit up for you, just went through the same exercise with the CBR1000rr as it comes with an electronic damper which I removed and replaced with an adjustable WP model.

      dont they race the Z1000 over east :? if they do you will be able to get a mount kit for it.steve cramer imports are the importer i think :roll: have a look at there web site.

      are we talking NEW Z1000 or early model?if its early dont bother finding out if you can get a bracket.make one instead.

          Were you up the track on Sunday? If so I saw you have a pretty big wobble getting out of skyline :evil:

            It's an 03 model.
            I was told that the Z1000 they race uses some other make than Ohlins. the one I have is the one with the extra cartridge on the side (non round) so I can't adapt another kit to fit.
            I'll ask at Northside Kwaka too.
            Cheers

            Yeah, that was me! Hence the search for a damper mount. I had a big one coming back down the hill too, I had to be very light on the bars going over the top.

            Still the Zed wasn't too bad there, bit soft and poor ground clearance (left most of my foot pegs behind) but good fun. Was the 1st time I'd been there. I'm hungry for some more track time now. You weren't the guy in red leathers on the R6 by any chance were you?

                      red leathers but it was a cbr6. i had a bit of a dice with you for a couple of laps and had a brief chat to you. you should do the racecraft day on the 27th. see below...

                          Was the damper top mounted or side mountedon the old bike?

                          coz if it was top mounted you might have probs mounting it on the Z1000 because of the bars.... a side mounted system might suit ya better... and yer exsisting damper might not be suitable (long enough) for use in a side mounted system...
