IMO. like i said i'm no pro, but this is where i have figured out it helps me. ohh yeah bubs. those sv's are fun little bikes. :icon_bigg

later dudes
omg, its Spradling!:icon_bigg
good to c u on here again brandon, but I am missin one thing. if u just let the clutch out like the usual way, how do u initiate the slide. or by 'not dumping', di u just mean controlled ?(of some sort that i hv no clue of:icon_bigg )

What he means is instead of fully releasing the clutch you feather it to inhibit wheel spin.

kalkat i had the same prob months back, i dont know if its just me but i think the 600's r easier to back in? i spend the last 5 months riding everyday doing nothing but working at getting the bike loose at every light and turn. heres what i gathered so far, you are pretty much using every single control on your bike at the same time, weird huh? ok try this tomorrow, get up to about mid range in 3rd gear, when you approach the light, come down hard on the gears, go to first, apply rear brake but only lets sayyyyy 40% rear brake, <----becareful with that because thats what will get the bike to slide rather then hop. 2 fingers on the clutch to pull it in incase your slide gets out of control, 2 fingers on the front brake to keep the of the bike light so you can move it out. and i dont know bout you guys but i dont ease off the clutch, dump it but be ready for it. last, STAY ON YOUR REAR brake, dont get off it until the motor is ready to match speeds otherwise it might buck you off, you can let off a little or apply more brake which in turn brings your slide out more, its fuking addicting and once you get the hang of it man youll be doing everywhere. im no pro at this yet, i still have a little trouble estimating my slide time but surely practice with this is sure to do wonders to the lap times. ill be practicing this at the next trackday i go to so its bound to make good footage stay safe tell us if you got down tomorrow:icon_smil
