Ideally, you should have all your braking down before the turn, with the exception of some minor trail braking. Best way to let the bike work is to be back on the gas lightly before the apex, and let the suspension work without trying to turn and brake at the same time.

Also, when you brake that far in and then get back on the gas, the front end wants to come up and unsettle the works.

Is this the result of MSF training? I see many folks mentioning using the rear on the street; however, unless it's wet or heavy gravel, I never touch the rear brake. Just curious.

Downshifting and rear brake for stopping is useless during hard braking. If you are finding downshifting and rear brake useful during braking - you are not using anywhere near the potential stopping power of your bike. The front brake does the stopping on a sport bike - period.

Most people are more comfortable trail braking with the rear as opposed to the front. Most people also are afraid to use the brakes in a turn because they have never learned how.

So far as the one handed thing mudbug, start slow. Just try opening your hands and letting your fingers dangle to start; abruptly removing your hand mid turn if you aren't used to it can upset the bike a bit.

And we are talking about street riding here folks; trying to carry max speed into the turn and late braking is best saved for the track. Slow in fast out is the safe way to survive on the street. It also works better than you would think on the track.

I'd say to have the suspension set up. Sorry if you already said u did that. Sounds like everything else was checked by you.
I know a couple times I felt a lot of wobble while exiting the diamonds edge turn at MSRH. I know it was the track surface that started the wobble at the rear tire and a lot of exit speed that increased the wobble from the rear through to the front. One time it was actually bumping me from side to side and off the bike a little bit. But I figured if my suspension had not been set up perfectly, I could have high sided or wobbled right off the track.
