llamadingo Posted June 12, 2016 Report Share Posted June 12, 2016 Apologies if this has been covered a ga-jillion times...I'm having trouble finding the answer. My current status: On the balls of my feet, outside foot/leg locked to the outside of the bike, arms light, inside arm steering, head positioning inside, inside knee is light, feeling comfortable in the corners and the bike feels stable. I came across a pro-racer video mentioning how he handled a corner in which he was coming in a bit too hot. He articulated what equated to the "hook turn" but also mentioned weighing the inside foot-peg to help "bring the bike around." I currently don't make any accommodation for weighting the inside foot peg. The logic for me is to keep the weight off the inside foot, to allow my upper body to be the "bigger lever". However, years ago with experimenting before CSBS, I had noticed some effects from weighting but I had way too many inputs to isolate this. What is the recommendation on: inside foot peg weighting? Outside footpeg weighing? Distrbution %? Timing/when applicable for all of the above (if they actually apply)? I just usually lock the outside, unweight the inside (and the rest is upper body, light steering, throttle control, braking technique, etc.) I just don't want to have a knowledge gap.... Can anyone help? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
