crozzer Posted July 2, 2010 Report Share Posted July 2, 2010 I am not a racer, nor one of the "fast guys." I have a question for those guys though... In slow-speed maneuvers, it is a basic thing to "pull" with the motor while lightly dragging the rear brake. The bike lifts from chain tension. In theory (or my limited understanding of it), this seems like it would have really great turn-in and mid-turn applications. It seems it would lift the bike and provide stability. (and no, we are not worried about locking the rear tire if the engine is pulling...) For example, think of being at a stand-still, waiting to pull away at a light. Rear-brake on, a little bit of clutch and throttle, the bike lifts noticeably, without actually applying any forward torque to the rear tire. So here is a specific question: If a little bit of maintenance throttle is good, might a little bit more be better, then cancel out the forward effect on the tire by rear-braking. Wouldn't this be a really good dynamic in a turn? (let the flames begin...) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
