ZX10R 2006 front lockup
Hello everyone. I'm new to this forum, and also to the Kawasaki brand.
I've been riding since 2013 with my first bike being a 1000 gixxer k4. Never had problem with it, it was smooth bike, comfortable and forgiving.
2 months ago I bought a 2006 ZX10R with just 19k km on the clock. The bike was fixed after an accident and in good condition, the price was good so I went after it.
It's a great bike, very lightweight and after 4k rpm it goes crazy.
Now, on my problem. For the last month I had two crashes due to front wheel locking up after emergency braking. I'd say that my first accident was probably due to me, being new with the bike, and the fact that there was sand on the road, but 2 days ago absolutely the same thing happened on perfectly good road. I realize that its pretty much my fault, for the panic braking, but I'm just so frustrated, that I had to ask if anyone else was having same issues with this model.
I've never had such problem with the suzuki (and I've got much more kilometers ridden on it) and that makes me think that it could be something with the front brakes/forks on the zx10r.
Any comments would be appreciated, but just please don't attack me. I've got nothing against the bike.
