What\'s this on my bike?

I have no idea what this is for on the left side of the frame and I've never seen one on another bike. I have'nt seen another '99 750 up close either. But it's threaded so something screws into it but what? Any ideas?

Yup, but if you plan on getting a damper..get a top mount..1 lowside could trash a damper that's mounted in that location...

ummmmmm

you already have a damper (oem) that fitting is a carry-over from the 96-7 model, of which didnt have an oem damper....

i had a stock unit on my 99, got rid of it for a top mount..(much better) BUT a real pain in the ass to lift the tank!!

on my 02 i have an OHLINS sd0139 in the stock location......

much nicer!!

I use that as my extra fuel reserve. I pump my frame full of gas and run a line out of it. It nets me an extra 2.46433 gallons of fuel. I kick ass in the endurance races like Daytona.

I also pump helium in it the frame when I want to do wheelies.

That's the place where you can attach the Suzuki-wings
, (not Honda-wings of course
) Part nr. 9845666

Attach them, open throttle in first gear to about 10.000rpm then close-open and you'll lift off!

DO NOT RUB IT WHILE RIDDING!!!
and dont let anyone else rub it either
If it is like my last girlfriend it will flip over on its back as soon as anyone touches it.

I dont know if your gixxer is a slut like her though

You are all a bunch of SRAD ignorami.

That "thing" is a long-ride comfort feature developed for all SRADs. There is an OEM tube that you stick into it. The other end of the tube is where you insert your penis. That way, you don't have stop to
on long rides.
