Hi people, i`m from colombia, i just bought a new Z1000 2010.... but I feel the suspension very hard and I want to adjust and be more soft..... someone could help me explain how to do? thx.

Another question I have, someone has felt a vibration somewhere in the tank when it reaches around 5,000 rpm? as if entering into resonance and make it vibrate?

Thanks for help.

Keep safe people!.

The owners manual explains it pretty good. Thats what I used anyway, but I actually stiffened my suspension up for better handling during aggressive riding.

And yes, my 2010 has the same viration at 5,000 rpm. I still have not found the source. I just ignore it now. I can only hear it at low speeds.

Hello Carlos,

I used to live in Bogota! That was many years ago...

Suspension adjustment is really easy. On the rear shock, there is a flat-head screw adjustment that has an H and an S with an arrow between them. Turn it clockwise to soften the rear suspension, turn it counterclockwise to stiffen. (or it might be the opposite - Im going from memory. But all you have to do is follow the arrows!) The front is a little different - on the top of the forks is the rebound damping (this controls how fast the suspension returns after being compressed) and on the bottom of the fork is the adjustment for the compression setting. They have the exact same adjusters - flat head screws. You turn them clockwise to soften, counterclockwise to stiffen. (Or again, it might be opposite of that - just follow the arrows!)
