Q How can I stop my wind is­sues?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garage -

I’ve fit­ted a de­flec­tor screen to my ZRX1200R’S bikini fair­ing. But the han­dling on mo­tor­ways in cross­winds makes the front end feel ner­vous. A tyre swap from Avon Storm 2s to Conti Sport At­tacks has wors­ened it. Ted Rud­dle, email

A An­swered by Gareth Evans, Re­ac­tive Sus­pen­sion Your bikini fair­ing is mounted high up on the head­stock and you have fit­ted a taller screen. Any wind in­put is close to the forks and steer­ing, and will set up a weave. You should also com­pare the rolling cir­cum­fer­ence of your Avons and Con­tis. If there’s a dif­fer­ence it will change the bike’s at­ti­tude and ef­fec­tive rake and trail, so you may need to ad­just the fork height and shock set­tings.
