Just picked up an 2006 R6 off my friend (he bought it a year ago and wasn't riding it).
Anyways, I have an issue with the handling in that the steering is REALLY loose, with just the slightest lean or turn it wants to just jump into the turn. Really hard to balance at lower speeds and when rounding corners even at like 30km/h I have to put probably 15-20 lbs (just a guestimate) of counter-steer to keep my line.
I've owned two Suzuki's, my last bike being an SRAD, and have ridden CBRs before and always found the handling really easy and stable. On my Gixxer I could execute most corners with a lean and very slight pressure on the bars.
How can I stabilize the steering on the R6? Is it supposed to be that jumpy and loose? (Not sure if the previous owner (before my friend) did some tuning on the steering or suspension).
