I'm no racer, but this is my technique since you asked
On hard right turns. Slow down to a comfortable speed as I approached. (most likely down shifting) I would shift my weight to the right as I was going in and push forward on the right grip.(not pushing down, but forward, kinda parallel to the ground) Don't stab at the grip just ease it forward. I don't hang my of the seat as I'm cornering either. About halfway through the turn, while I'm still in lean, I twist the throttle gradually (helps stand the bike upright as well as gaining speed) and pull back slightly on the right grip while pushing slightly on the left grip. Then as the bike is coming up from lean, I give it more throttle until I'm wide open when the bike is upright.
hope i helped. As I said before, I'm no racer, and I could care less to go fast on the street.

Three basic parts to cornering. For the street anyhow.
Countersteering, eye and head position, and steady or accellerating throttle
Finish all your braking before the turn, then hold the throttle steady. Turn your head and eyes towards the exit of the turn. Push into the turn, push left to go left, push right to go right. Any adjustment to the line is done thru bar input. As soon as you see the exit of the turn and are ready, start "picking up" the throttle. Smooth is the key here, don't just whack it open. As you start to accelerate the bike will want to start picking up; a little more pressure on the inside bar will keep it on line.
Don't worry about trying to hang off on the street. Get comfortable on the bike and relax the elbows.
A wise man once told me: "No matter how fine she is, just remember. Somewhere, someone is tired of her !"
