Do you try to go from cone to cone? They are set up pretty well.

I'm may be doing it wrong but I come into 13 a little wide and late. Let's me hit the apex a little late then am coming upright and on the throttle and letting the bike push out.

I usually aim for the cones. I know I use them for braking markers and 2-8 but the 9-13 section has always been a struggle for me.

If i can get a bike to run in Inter with you, I will be more than willing to show you what lines I take through there. Or we could do more of the paint lines.

why not have one of the instructors follow you through there a couple of times, before you start adjusting the suspension. Looks to me like a line problem more than a suspension problem.

It looks like you're trying to take the shortest route rather than the fastest.

Do not use cones as reference points, they can move through out the day. Try to use items inside the track, like patches, bumps, etc.

Aaron, if your drawing is showing the line you take, that could very well be the problem.

it's a possibility that you weren't looking as fast as you were going.... if that makes sense.

also if you feel it's suspension, running wide on exit, try giving your shock a little more compression. it may be squatting too much and pushing you wider than you'd like on drive.

The faster you go the more you have to make changes on your bike and upgrading your suspension gives it more adjustability.

But if you are only having a problem in that corner then thats not bad lol if you must make a change you can try to raise your rear ride height a littke bit like maybe on or one and a half turns

If you make a suspension change you're gonna feel it everywhere else. Seems like if you just fix your line on one turn it would remedy the problem and maintain consistency elsewhere on the track.

You're taking 12 to tight. Go way out to your right when entering 12 then you'll be much further to the left when you come out of 12 and then have almost a straight shot down the straight. You want believe how much speed you'll pick up on the straight but you better be able to brake hard for turn 1!
