Z1000SX - General Discussion / Re: Top speed with panniers
« Last post by ed on Today at 04:57:29 PM »
How bizarre. Am I the only one to experience instability problems with paniers? My bike is stock suspension (Just increased rear preload to 20 clicks in, nothing else), 5kg in each pannier, I prob weigh 90kg with all my gear on. Standard screen on lowest setting.

Tusker,

I'd been thinking about trying the Puig screen suggested by Teaboy and others. Just purchased from M&P on eBay with 20% off until 11.59pm on the 27th using code PURE20.

This reduced the price to £56.79 with free delivery.

HTH

I can  only think that your touring screen must be helping stability in some way. Or maybe the 2017 onwards more pointy front makes them more prone to effects of paniers

Stability at speed has as much to do with suspension, suspension settings and weight distribution as it has to do with physical shape.

I have a Toyota Hiace. When I collected my new SX a couple of weeks ago I just loaded the bike into the back, strapped it down and drove home.
I have also used it extensively to carry a trackday GSXR 750 and I use it to transport my trail bike around the country or abroad.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but there are so many low mileage bikes about that a bike with 25000 miles on it will be considered high mileage.  (I say this as someone that regularly clocked over 10000 miles per year on mine - my 2017 is on 21000 miles).

Unfortunately it will kill the trade in value.  Dealers will aim for about £1k on the bike on resale.  A perfect 2015 bike will sell for about £6k, so trade in about £5k.  Anything with high mileage about £1k less at best I reckon. You will be better off trying to sell to a discerning buyer privately and you might get close to £4500  Remember also that the expensive service is also due in 2000 miles.
