The one thing I would caution all of us to remember is that we should be careful what we post. This thread contains some highly suspect information that a new rider could use to hurt himself.
SO, rephrase the question in a way that is clear about what you want to know and then all responses should be carefully worded so as not to mislead.
oh so true, hate to see some one get hurt

You might be right, but if we're comparing a 1000cc twin without a slipper to a 1000cc I4 with one.....there's a massive difference in compression braking. However, you're still probably right.

And just so we're clear.......chopping the throttle is clapping it closed. No on, just an abrupt off. Since thats so confusing.......lets just talk about what happens when you grab some brake in a turn as the effect is the same.
A motorcycle is a joy machine. It's a machine of wonders, a metal bird, a motorized prosthetic. It's light and dark and shiny and dirty and warm and cold lapping over each other; it's a conduit of grace, it's a catalyst for bonding the gritty and the holy.
