Yeah ive never heard of it either, i would preferrably have some high quality ones if im going to spend the money on it. (up to like 500$)
However i noticed its not very popular to have dampers for this bike, i even asked at my local kawa dealer and they told me to check for it on some forums lol

Well on my 2007 Z1000, i had a hyperpro damper, which cost me about 500 euro.

They make them for for the gen4 aswell.
Im pretry sure there are other well known quality brands that make them too.

It’s FX RACING (does look like an E though) I brought it from webike they do tonnes of stuff you can’t find anywhere else - like the rear brake adapter plate!

seems Very well made and solid , I’m no expert though, definitely does the job, adjustable too.

I think it was about £60

i looked at their site and this is what i found that should fit the z1k.
Hyperpro webshop

I assume it should work but there isnt alot of reviews and or installs on the internet, is it relativly easy to do?

Oh nice, is it really nessesary to cut the ignition cover or would it be fine leaving it as is without it?
I guess i could always get a second cover for the ignition part and cut that instead.
Thanks alot!

You either cut the ignition cover, or you don't reinstall it.

It so stupid.... hyperpro is a dutch company, but when i want one it costs more, oposed to someone from abroad

the cheapo route is to get a $40 ebay one just for the mounting hardware and then use a 3rd gen ZX10r Ohlins unit for the damper itself
