Today's carbon fiber motorcycle wheels already use 'enhanced resin technology' - aka Carbon Nanotubes/Nano technology

NOLA Lamborghini is actually working on carbon fiber connecting rods for the next gen Aventador released in 2020.

Bring it on I say.

Car's have used carbon fiber drive shafts for years and some of the newest motorcycles wheels utilize 'forged carbon' hubs.

Someday, the motorcycle world will not even think twice about the use of carbon fiber.

GoFaster I've never had a shake out of mine, either, and the roads are crap around here. (Stock wheelbase and ride height)

Boosted10R ^It still can't eliminate head shake! Regardless the whole point of my statement was to say the H2 isn't the cause of the head shake. I have ridden and raced the bike both SWB and extended.

Longer wheelbase increases forward weight distribution and lowers the frequency of chassis oscillations. I would also wager that your aftermarket swingarm is a wet noodle in terms of torsional stiffness, which also lowers the frequency of any oscillations that involve it.

The opposite of your bike is a dirt bike or motard-style bike ... and they're skittish at highway speed because of being quite short with too much rear weight distribution and the weight too high up.

h2madness! I can't help but believe the Kawasaki Rims are designed in concert with the ESD.Could be a mistake switching to 'lighter' wheels?The factory ones are the lightest in the industry...so I've read.For this size motorcycle that is.Straight line's one thing.Serious street/canyon riding(or track)is something very different.
