<FONT FACE="Verdana,Arial" SIZE=2>This is a total overall opinion of the suspension adjustments and handling for the ZX-12R.

You should consider the size and power of the ZX-12R, I don't think it is fair to compare the 12 to an R6.



The only disclaimer would be that some people may not really know how to set up the suspension for their riding terrain and weight, so the results may vary on how far away the riding is from the defaut settings.

But at least it is a start.



Please follow up with a post explaining your suspension background and what you are comparing the suspension to.</FONT><FORM method=post action="http://pub56.ezboard.com/fkawasakizx12rfrm17.processVote?topicID=12.topic"><table border=0 cellpadding=3 cellspacing=0 width="55%">

Like EZ said, its a BIG bike, enough said.

Though , after dropping it a notch w/ the muzzy links, and setting the rebound a notch or two, I haven't had anyone

truely ride away from me either. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)">

The 12 far exceeded my expectations of a BIG bike. I've owned a '88 RGV-250, '90 GSXR-750 and a C1 ZX-9R (plus some dirt bikes over the years.) If my 9 handled as well as the 12 I may have kept it (only kidding!)



Keep it black side down!</p>

This bike handles sooooooooooo much better than my ZX11c ever did! It handles way better than I expected it would, especially considering it's size and height and length. I think the 12 feels kinda like a ZX9R on steroids. I had the suspension set up for my weight by a mechanic friend who dialed it in perfectly. The front forks tubes were adjusted slightly in the top triple clamp to quicken the steering. The bike is very, VERY maneuverable at high speeds in my opinion. Night and Day difference over the ZX11
