It’s been 3 years since I started riding the Ninja 400. .. If you ride this much, you will understand the good and bad points of this machine. Weaknesses can also be seen.

It seems that Kawasaki, which maintains a certain level of performance while reducing weight without using expensive parts or materials, seems to have worked hard, but at a place close to the limit of using high grip tires, Weaknesses come out.

Judder is particularly annoying. ..
I’ve been testing various things to find out the cause, but I haven’t been able to identify it yet.
If you want to go one step further, do you feel that the solution of judder is indispensable?

I would like to run with some tests this weekend as well. ..

    Is it common for Japanese riders to choose Progressive Rate springs for Moto Gymkhana or do they use Linear Rate springs? I have heard some riders use soft springs for the front forks. Do some riders use firm springs? Thank you

    Hello Lexco
    Thanks for reaching out

    The answer for you question is definitely ‘Linear Rate’ without a doubt.
    Have tried both myself, but ‘Progressive Rate springs’ are near impossible to handle when in Gymkhana.

    Just stick with a Linear Rate thats just a bit stiffer than stock and go upwards.
    Be sure to use the whole stroke of the damper. If you hit bottom, adjust compression or go for a higher spring rate.

    Don’t think anybody
