Check Your Wheel Alignment Zx6r
Just checked my wheel alignment out for the first time, as i had to make a new set of straight edges up (my last set got bent). The marks on the blocks and swing arm were spot on, but in reality the front wheel was 10mm out. I have been reading on some of the forums about the need for steering dampers. If your wheels are not in a straight line then you will get all sorts of trouble and thus will need a damper. Correct wheel alignment is a lot cheaper.
I have been doing my chain tension with alignment bars for years, various bikes are differant amounts out, but my 07 zx6r is the worst one yet. I have only had one bike that had adjusters that were spot on. So be warned!
