My old bike, my 05' Z750 is going to be sold. Last week I bought a 11' Z1000SX. Before I can drive I will move the front brake and throttle to the left side. I'm using only the left arm when driving. Due to that I got a question for you all; do I need a steering damper for that bike. I had one on my Z750 but I'm not sure I will need it? What do u think??

I have now mounted a quickshifter from Translogic to my Ninja 1000. Looking forward to the summer:)

I think that's something you can only decide for yourself after riding it - carefully! - for a short while.

Can't see as one would hurt any and might make it feel safer once on the road as you have a lot to do with just the left hand doing all the work.

Kawasaki and Steering Damper are words that should always be used together!
:roll: :wink:

I think you'll know what it's like to handle a tank slapper with one arm (keep quite you dirty minded lot :mrgreen: ). I've got two good arms and I.ve quickly fitted steering dampers on bikes I thought needed them. And friends I know who ride Kawa's say they are prone to shake their heads now and again, especially older Kwaks.
So I'd say... if in doubt, fit one! Rather be safe than sorry!
