Crash106 Posted March 9, 2010 Report Share Posted March 9, 2010 I took the bike out for a nice ride this weekend and noticed something different: I would ride toward a turn, slow down to adjust my corner entry speed to something comfortable, then turn and roll through ON the throttle. Turning ON the throttle took more push--more steering input--than when turning with the throttle closed. If I wanted to turn with the throttle CLOSED, I had to roll a LOT further into the corner (well, like 20-30 feet further) before slowing and turning. That was a bit scary because I was carrying more speed further into the turn. For example--on a right hand curve, I would have to go almost to the yellow line before rolling off, turning and rolling on. At normal street speeds, turning with the throttle closed seemed to require very good timing: close-lean-open almost as one action. Not what I expected. Is it "bad" to turn with maintenance throttle already on? Is it "okay" to go WELL into the corner before rolling off and tipping in? Does anyone else notice this? Thanks.
