When I had my vtr1000 I just got used to the back end sliding around when i downshifted to aggressively. It wasn't the right thing to do but once i got used to it happening I thought it was fun. I ended up learning to slip the clutch back out so it didn't happen.

blip the throttle better or get a slipper clutch. problem solved

engine braking is a waste of time if you want to be a fast rider on the track. if you're not on the gas, you're on the brakes.....anything in between is time added to your lap times.

My worst fear is the back end barkin when downshifting! Even after doin as many track days as I have I still have not gotten the hang of downshifting!I even went as far as having a gear shift indicator put on the Honda! And it still scares the dog out of me! So I just don't shift gears much! I guess I just need to breakdown and put a slipper clutch on the RR!

WOW Martin that would be awesome!

I have really got to do something I am really starting to out ride the single gear thing! It has gotten to where I have started to hit the rev limiter on all the straights and I am gettin tired of just backin off the gas so I don't have to change a gear! It is just a fear that I must overcome or get off the track because I am not progressing!


How much would a slipper clutch cost for the RR? Anyone have a idea.

She does shift....just not often. She's terrified of going into a corner hot and dumping a gear that the bike is gonna chatter hard and freak her out! She usually rides GSS in 2nd mostly and MSRH mostly in 3rd.

... i figured she actually shifted thru the gears. that makes Godsuki look even worse. she beat him without even shifting outta 2nd gear.

just curious why she doesnt ride a smaller bike ? one that isnt so intimidating ?
