aslcbr600 Posted August 3, 2012 Report Share Posted August 3, 2012 In the twist 2 video it mentioned that anything 600CC's and over 4000-6000RPM in 4th gear seems to be the most compliant range as far as being in the turn for suspension compression. Now 600's are higher revving bikes then a 1000 and generally from what I understand with a 600 you want to keep it in the higher RPM range so on the drive out of the corner you are in the power band. On my 600RR the power doesn't even come on until about 7500RPM I would say. 1. Do you really want to be that low in the RPM's in a turn with a 600? In a 1000 I could see because too much throttle would be a lot easier to lose traction. 2. How do you know when the suspension is in it's most compliant range when you are in mid turn? 3. One other question, I noticed in other videos I have watched they say "you should be in this gear at this turn" what justifies this? My only knowledge is you should be in whatever gear is best for your turn entry speed. What good is being in say 3rd gear if my turn in speed is putting me at 3000RPM into the corner?
