Re: 01 cbr 929

yes, they dont come standard with it. putting a damper on a bike should be personal preference. most people feel the 954/929 are prone to tank slappers, i rode my bike for 1 month after i bought it with no damper and had no issues, occasional wobble when the front would go light when on the gas but otherwise nothing. if your really smooth on the gas you could get buy without, if your inexperienced id get one cause if your a little choppy with the throttle i could see a slapper in the near future.

Re: 01 cbr 929

Yeah,

Check out the thread homemade damper, it talks about using a gixxer 1000 stock damper. I got mine on and took it off, guess I used not using one.

There are a few threads on this, if I got one it would have to be a topside, and adjustable.

Re: 01 cbr 929

I did for about a year, then changed the gearing and decided with the increase in acceleration, a damper wouldnt be a bad idea. I also used a gsxr1000 damper, only til i can afford an adjustable one

Re: 01 cbr 929

is this your first bike? if so not the best choice for a first ride. if you dont know already its a pretty expensive thing to get into. dont forget to set aside money for gear, maintenance, and possible issues down the road. its a 9yr old bike so will probably need new fluids and such. i love mine but i did spend money to change all the fluids, brake lines, and any other consumable including tires...

Re: 01 cbr 929

the headlight will be the most expensive necessity. Hold off an a damper, as they are $400+.

Blinkers and switches are cheap from ebay, or parts bikes, and theres always a fender for $50 or so floating around too.

Rear seats are cheap, browse the 'for sale' section here.

the mileage is not bad, unless its a beat up bike in the first place.

Re: 01 cbr 929

it kinda has the feel of a layed down bike. it does come with an extended swingarm i could sell for all the parts the only other option is an 02 gsxr 750. my last bikes were problems childs and im trying to steer clear of that this time and make a good choice.

Re: 01 cbr 929

I love my 929, and shes been down once too. Low sided at about 40 mph, not really a big deal minus my little injury.

What are the stats on the gixxer?
