    Is it just me, or is he lucky to still be riding? I have never had a slapper nor do I ever want to experience one... from what I know about them is that they are very VERY hard to recover from.

    Not to raise the BS flag too soon, but it just sounds fishy to me.
    you dont recover from a slapper, you just kinda ride it out and let the bike recover

        That is IF the bike recovers. I think we have all seen the classic tankslapper video...I hope to never have one. If I do, I will probably poop my pants.
        If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them down? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason.

          Tank slappers are scary but if you stay calm you will ride it out just fine and minimize anal leakage.

              Some people substitute head shake for tank slapper. though a tank slapper is always head shake, head shake is not always a slapper.

              sounds like most of the angles have been covered. Weird since it didn't do it before.

                How about the obvious its a 97 did it get the steering dampner upgrade that it should of had? Is it possible the bike has never gotan the steering dampner that was supose to be installed at the deal as a result of this?

                  OK all, here it is. The bike is a 98 with a 97 engine. So yes, it does have a steering damper, but it's only the stock, and I don't believe it is in the best shape. And forgive my wording. I would call it more of a headshake than a tank slap. He says that that is right around where it starts. Sometimes higher speed, sometimes lower speed, but always in that range. And acceleration does make a difference. The harder he is accelerating, the harder it shakes. I've been doing some reading on here and I have seen that the creaking from the rotary damper is a common tl problem. His tl is doing this, would this be another culprit?? And I've also noticed that his rotary damper is leaking from the adjustment screw, making me question if his rotary damper is any good at all. Once again, all your input is appreciated, and I'd love to hear what other ideas you guess have.

                  And BTW, what's up jokertlr, yeah it's me. You're not gonna hit me with the gixxer / assholes / everyones got'em line, are ya
