having problems with circles

i started working on stand up circles last night for the first time... i have never done them on a big bike... only of 50's and xr 100's so i kinda have the concept down... i ride a 03 gsxr 600 with a 60 tooth rear, i started by pulling it up and ridding on iddle then i would get it to start a circle and get maybe 90-180 degrees and it would either stall or it would push out and i would drp the front... like it started a circle and just stopped.. i was thinking that i might need to learn how to feather the clutch or something to keep it from stalling. it seemed easier to do a tight circle on iddle then it was to do a big circle. i am also runnin my iddle at 4 grand. anyone got any pointers? i am doing them stand up with left foot on passenger peg...

Are you trying left or right? You gotta stay on top of the bike and let it dip in more then gas it a little and feather the clutch if you are going to high side. Make sure you got atleast 20lbs or more of air in your tire and you might wanna bump your idle to 3500. Other than that just keep practicing... if they were easy then more people would be doing them.

Try it at 35 but I think 4k will work better for the gearing you have.
And 20psi will make the bike want to cut a o' that much easier..
Put more weight on your staggard foot and dip in to the o' and commit. It might seem like you are going fast into to o' but you will get used to it. You might have to gas, brake, gas, brake untill you get id better.
be smooth on the trottle, you will be twitchy with that gearing.

ya i know.. for some reason at iddle and goin into a tight circle felt better for me.. i was going for a big circle but i could not commit... so do i need to lean into the circle or lean out... on the fiddy i lean out.. i dont understand the dip part. should i lean forward or lean back

yeah, you need to raise the air pressure... youre running too flat of a surface... add some air and round the back tire a little more...


practice practice practice... it isn't something you learn overnight

GL!

Lean back a little and in. You go left easier becuse the bike wants to go that way already. Most of your weight should be on the left passenger peg and pull with your right arm.

Slip the clutch before it stalls and you will go for days. Your tire pressure is fine for circles. More air and the easier they get. If you run 22 lbs or more air, then your tire will not form that lip on the side from doing circles.
