The compression rebound adjustments etc.

I get a bad headshake on the bike when going over several consecutive bumps

Not always front suspension. you need to find a balance on it. Andre is a tall boy, you can prob start by reducing preload on the rear shock. I think he had it turned all the way to the full...

Ek sal net weer moet gaan oplees, ek kan nie lekker onthou nie. Maar jy moet ook weet dat die wobble nie noodwendig deur die voorste settings oorsaak word nie. Ek het op my R80 n wobble reggemaak deur bietjie meer preload en damping agter op te sit.

Jes ek verstaan, dit gaan nie net oor die wobble nie, ek dink die wobble het te doen met die rebound, maar ek wiel die voor suspension bietjie sagter he?

Ek weet jy wiel...  :biggrin:

Ek het al met my DRZ ook gevind dat ek bietjie sukkel met traction op corrugations, maar vir die res is dit fine. Ek het n Claymer of Haynes manual vir die DRZ. ek sal die suspension setting gaan soek, maar jou beste vriend is google en thumpertalk. hou op hier vrae vra  ;D

When I got my bike, I also had headshake on tar roads at speed.
Check out the steering bearings.
If they are OK, just tighten them abit.
Problem solved.


BTW, what are stone deflectors? ???

The MCCT will be clearly visible - looks quite different from the auto one. If you have the manual one fitted, adjusting it by ear is quite easy.
