Hehe, I have way too many questions since I just started riding beginning of 06 but even if not, as they say, your always learn something.

3rd Question: I've changed my body position, experimented all day long and still can't find a way to keep my throttle hand (mostly) from going numb. Normal?

I had the same issue on my VFR with the throttle hand and I got Progrips and a crampbuster and it helped a lot, difference like day and night. I think I just grabbed to tight, and yes, I flap my wings, so that wasn't it.

4th Question: Is it bad form to ride with my middle two fingers always perched on the clutch lever? Do other people do this a lot?

I do it in traffic.

Also, try leaning your head into the curve, even with the inside mirror. Your head and helmet weigh 30-50 lbs and will make an appreciable difference to corner clearance....

Hmmm..... will have to try this
Something else to consider and practice.. don't coast into turns. Go in with a steady throttle, or slightly accellerating. This will not only set the chassis properly, but also gives you just a little more clearance...

here is a question... why are cars fuel injectors in the cylinder and my busa is before the intake valve?

another... why do girls get on the back of a bike with some complete stranger but would not get in a car with the same person under the same circumstances?

The right turn discomfort thing has more to do with the throttle the L/R handedness. As your body moves to the right in a right turn it tries to put your wrist in a bind. If you turn your hand slightly on the grip(as if to point your right elbow out more) it will allow your wrist to move more naturally.

Car injectors are in the intake tract, before the valves... except on a diesel

because you don't drive a Corvette or Ferrari.. that Escort just isn't as darn sexy!

Most cars have throttle body injection just like a bike. I can't think of a car that has injectors in the cylinder. Some have them just upstream of the intake valve but that's pretty exotic.

They are suckers for the bad boy image.

Injectors on bikes??? No way!!!!!!!!!!!! Mine is carbed... LOL!!!


And most cars built since the early 90's are direct port injection, as opposed to throttle body injection.. they just use the throttle body to control airflow.

Ouch--the brutality. Well, good thing I set up a "safe thread" for questions such as this.
