As everyone has said, you were too abrupt with the clutch and gears. Learn to downshift smoothly, with a blip on the gas between each gear.

My question is why you were slowing down for a curve in the first place? You are supposed to speed up when you come to a turn.....


geeez!!!

Some people believe since our transmissions are sequential, they like to be loaded and unloaded in order. Not 6, 5, 2, 1. More like 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, as you're coming to a stop, or slowing down for a corner.

Let the clutch out with more ease, too! Like noted above.
pshhhhh i saw divisioso go from 6 straight down to 2 on sunday when they showed the camera mounted on his bike pointing at his left toe. if he can do it, anyone can!

you can let the clutch out as fast as you want as long as you blip the throttle and match the rpm's, even if you go straight from 6th to 4th you want to blip the throttle and well its hard to explain its just something you learn on your own i guess
