Anyone with an 05/06 zx636c and a Matris steering damper?

I ask, as I just want to see how your throttle cables are routed around the damper mount - as no matter what way I go, the throttle return action is very poor.. I think the bends required are asking too much of the cables tbh

Had a good google, and sadly not found anything. There might have been a fitting guide on twobros.com at one point, but you just get a 404 when you try and go there now

I've never heard of that damper. If I were you, I would try contacting the manufacturer directly and see what they recommend.

yea I filled in a form on their website, but not sure Ill hear back.. believe the original fitting instructions are pretty poor on them in the first place too (in Italian to boot)

Apparently they are pricey stabilizers.....

Funny when I bought my bike it had one, I pulled it off immediately since I never liked steering stabilizers...

Note: I did not notice any issues with my throttle cable when it was installed..

Here are some pics...maybe that helps OP :O

Thanks Zx6ixxer, pic helps alright. Can see that the clutch is on top of the two throttle cables, and I reckon theres only one way they can be routed to get em like that (the way I thought was too severe). So maybe my cables are just goosed - Ill give em another good lube, and check the throttle return spring, and replace the cables if necessary

No problem :bigthumb:

And yeah...I suspect it had nothing to do with the stabilizer....give the cables a good ol' cleaning/lubing
