Alfred.Rodriguez Posted March 30, 2013 Report Share Posted March 30, 2013 In a separate thread http://forums.superbikeschool.com/index.php?showtopic=2522&st=60#entry31511 raised the point that being able to modulate the clutch would be an invaluable technique to have while cornering... The premise is that if you blew the corner, say, by having a missed shift, etc. doing a rev match with the clutch (not a throttle blip) or by modulating back/forth the "meet point" to limit the rear tire torque, is acceptable if to say avoid a crash, etc. This would also be a good technique to have in the street, as well. I had the experience that while cornering in the canyons that I over downshifted, and as luck would have it, on a sandy patch... Not knowing about TOTW throttle control then, I just used the clutch to limit the torque to avoid a crash (either lowslide/highside)... To that extent - I have also read articles about some pro riders using this technique in races. The anti-premise, however, is that if you blew the corner, instead of modulating the clutch (which may take a significant portion of the US$10 bill), it would be better to regroup and avoid the mistake the next lap... Created a new thread to hear other's thoughts! Cheers! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
