First, we’re going to install the upper Bracket. (#8 in Fig. 1) Start by placing a clean towel or other protective material over your front fender to protect it from falling objects. Remove the 5/16-18 Allen head bolt and washer holding the top of the crash bar to the frame. Use a ¼” Allen wrench. Access is easier if you crank the forks over to one side. Line up the hole in the new bracket with the crash bar, orienting the bracket to the crash bar as shown in Fig. 1, and re-install the bolt with a drop of blue loc-tite. Torque the bolt to 15-20 ft. lb. If you don’t have a torque wrench, well, you should have one, but if not, 15-20 ft. lb. is a bit tighter than a spark plug torque, which is 12-18 ft. lb. If you are not sure, snug it down tight, but don’t try to break it. Note than on a couple of these, I had to slightly elongate the hole in the bracket to re-install the upper crash bar bolt. (Side mount bracket installation) Next, the side bracket install. (#6 in Fig. 1) You’ll need a #35 Torx driver to remove the two screws holding the LEFT passing lamp/turn signal bar to the bike/trike. Carefully remove the upper and lower screws, holding the bar to prevent it from falling, possibly jerking the attached wiring. Once you have removed the screws, you can let the bar hang, while you orient the side bracket as per Fig. 1. Re-install the two screws you just removed, capturing the damper side bracket under the light bar. Use a drop of blue loc- tite here as well. Hand tighten the two screws, aligning the lamp bar and damper side bracket. Using your torque wrench, (you did find one didn’t you?) Tighten the two screws to 15-20 ft. lb. Ok the easy part is out of the way.

CABLE ROUTING DIAGRAM STEERING DAMPER ADJUSTMENT 19 Damping sweep controls Damping sweep ontrols 5 are located on each side off the damper body. Damping is in position 2, (12 o´clock), when delivered from Yamaha. This setting is fitted for enduro, motocross and off-road riding. WARNING Always ensure that valve setting is within the permitted ranges. NOTE: Both damping sweep controls must always be set in identical positions. Always use positions according to the clock. Suitable starting position: Motocross pos. 1 or 2 Enduro pos. 2 or 3 Off-Road pos. 2, 3 or 4 Technical data External measures 70x70x35 mm Seals Low friction type Oil Öhlins part no. 01306-01 Maintenance and inspection The steering damper is a precision instrument, with extremely fine tolerances. It is therefore essential that it is maintained in a correct manner. Maintenance and service should be carried out by an authorised service center. NOTE: After washing the motorcycle wipe clean and spray with all-round oil. Never subject to direct high-pressure cleaning since water may otherwise penetrate the damper. Ensure that there is no leakage of fluid and that there is no visible damage to the housing and mounts FRONT FORK REBOUND DAMPING FORCE ADJUSTMENT The rebound adjuster is located at the top of the fork leg. 1. Adjust: • Rebound damping force By turning the adjuster. Stiffer → Increase the rebound damping force. (Turn the adjuster in.) Softer → Decrease the rebound damping force. (Turn the adjuster out.) Extent of adjustment: Maximum Minimum Fully turned in 20 clicks out position (from maximum position) • STANDARD POSITION This is the position which is back by the specific number of clicks from the fully turned-in position. Standard position: 14 clicks out Do not force the adjuster past the minimum  or maximum extent of adjustment. The adjuster may be damaged. WARNING Always adjust each front fork to the same set- ting. Uneven adjustment can cause poor handling and loss of stability

1. Big Piston Fork (BPF) and Öhlins Steering Damper Throwing out the anchors at track speed demands a fork that remains composed under pressure. The fully adjustable new Big Piston Fork (BPF) does just that by significantly reducing damping pressure while maintaining consistent damping force. The standard Öhlins Steering Damper is likewise adjustable to help you dial in the steering damping level you need. 2. Horizontal Back-Link Rear Suspension New rear suspension positions the shock and its linkage above the swingarm, leaving room beneath the bike for a larger exhaust pre-chamber. The move helps centralize mass for better transitional cornering response, while also improving overall suspension action and road holding. The piggyback-reservoir shock is fully adjustable, including both low- and high-speed compression-damping circuits. 3. Adjustable Footpegs Adapting the ZX-10R for a day at the track or a long street ride is easy, thanks to its new adjustable footpegs. Raise the footpegs to improve your cornering clearance on the track, or lower them for a more relaxed riding position on the street or highway. The total range of adjustment is 15mm. 1. 2. 3.

setting The steering damper has three external setting possibilites, ie, setting of the damper valve, high- speed valve and sweep valve, which regulate the damping area (fig.2). Low speed valve Öhlins steering damper is delivered with the low speed valve set in a basic position that gives maximum basic damping. For enduro and motocross it is suitable to set the low speed in position 4-8, depending on the track and the rider. Turn clockwise to increase damping and counter clockwise to reduce it (fig.3). High speed valve The high-speed valve (fig.4) is set between 11/4 to 2 turns from the bottom position, suitable for enduro, motocross and off-road. WARNING! For all riding purposes the high-speed valve must be loosened at least 1 turn from the bottom. Otherwise the damping forces will become too high, making the ride hazardous. 5 3 High speed adjustment Steering damper body Link arm Sweep adjustment 4 Low speed adjustment Sweep adjustment Damping sweep controls Damping sweep controls (fig.8) are located on each side off the damper body. Damping is in position 2, (12 o´clock), when delivered from Öhlins. This setting is fitted for enduro, motocross and off-road riding

Front brake control lever (Fig.1, #5). When the lever is squeezed, the front wheel brake is actuated. The front brake should be used together with rear brake. When the brake lever is squeezed, the stop signal lamps are switched on. Kick lever (Fig.1, #11) is designed to start the engine. On pressing the lever the crankshaft of the engine is actuated through the gearbox. The lever is returned to its initial position by the spring inside the gearbox. Note: this is a backup to the electric starter. Gear shift foot pedal (Fig.1, #12) is a two-arm type. When the front arm is pressed, shifting from high to lower gears takes place. When the rear arm is pressed, shifting from low to higher gears takes place. Since the heel-toe shift lever is short-coupled, you will find it easier to shift up if you rotate the heel of your left foot in towards the rear arm before stepping on it with your heel. The neutral position is fixed between the I and II gears. Speedometer is on the dash board, with trip (Note..BC-75 has no trip odometer) and total odometer. The trip odometer is reset to zero by rotating push-button (Fig.1, # 3) counterclockwise. Note that the odometer reads in kilometers not miles. Ignition Switch (Fig.1, # 19) has three fixed positions of the key. The position and switching diagram of the ignition locks are shown above.
18 The indicator lamps are mounted on the instrument board: (Fig. 1, # 2) — turn indicator pilot lamp, (orange) (Fig. 1, # 4) — gearbox neutral and reverse gear engagement, (green) (Fig. 1, # 18) — head lamp high beam indicator, (dark blue) (Fig. 1, # 20) — alternator fault indicator lamp, (red) Note: If the red alternator fault light stays on continuously during normal operation above approximately 1500 RPM, there is a problem with the charging system or battery. Throttle Control (Fig.1, # 6) is on the right handlebar. Turning the twist grip counterclockwise increases engine speed. Ignition Cutoff Switch (Fig.1, # 7) has two positions, ignition off (up), and ignition on (down). Low and High Beam Light Switch (Fig.1, # 15), turn indicator switch (Fig.1, #13) and horn push-button (Fig.1, # 14) are combined in one unit on the left-hand handle bar control housing. Master Battery Switch (Fig.1, # 21) is under the seat. Electric Start Button (Fig. 1, # 8) is located on the right-hand twist grip, below the kill switch. The Steering Damper absorbs lateral kicks on the front wheel. Turning tightening bolt (Fig.1, # 17) clockwise increases friction. This can be used while riding over bad roads
