jnbazw Posted October 3, 2013 Report Share Posted October 3, 2013 Hi Everyone This is my first post so please be patient. I ride a 2008 Cbr1000RR which I love. I have also been fortunate enough to attend CSS and have completed level 3. I ride in the middle of the A group at about 10secs per lap off our national riders. So not brilliant, but not bad either. I have a question regarding corner entry. I like to get all my down shifting and braking done before I turn the bike into the corner. I do this so that I minimise the SRs caused by charging into the corner. Often when I approach a slow corner, I have to get into a low enough gear to allow me drive out on exit. This causes a lot of engine braking and I regularly exit the corner frustrated because I could have gone through the corner faster. My options as I see them are: 1.) Find a way to adjust my slipper clutch to be more sensitive to reduce the engine braking. 2.) Use the hand clutch to allow less engine braking. 3.) Stop being a "chicken". Brake later. Learn to trail brake and just attack the corner. Can you give me any advice on what drills or techniques to try or point our where I am going wrong? Many Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
