Your camera was mounted crooked right? Your lean angles on right turns looked CRAAAAZY!

..plus, that track looks pretty shitty. Not sure I wanna go to Gateway anymore.

Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE

The mount on my old fairings was crooked, look at the angle on the grid for true level. The track isn't bad when you learn the few bumps it has and how to manage the transitions from flat to banking and back.

It's a proven method for bending shift forks.

if ya do find yourself with a false neutral. it's better to upshift vs. downshift. Going down could result in a highside if you end up in a low gear and dump the clutch. And it's easier to get the bike in gear in this situation upshifting anyway.. and when you do get it in gear, worst problem is the rpm's may be a tad low. not a real problem.

I know there is all kinds of talk about "if you track ride/race ya have to GP shift".. i find standard shift (street pattern) much easier for me, and (knock on wood) I can't remember the last time I had a false neutral (oh yea, it was riding for an endurance team, and the bike was GP shift.. )

Since the season is done, it was the only way to get the bike to downshift and I have no way to make sure it was not me. I tried to upshift, but it just would not go. I hear you on the highsiding, no one wants that. As I watched more video from Barber, the count is up to 6 false neutrals, I have 4 more vids to watch. It was suggested to take a look at the clutch and see if anything is out of place or out of whack. I'm gonna stay with standard shift, I'm not all that and a bag of peanuts when it comes to TD's........... at least not yet

Are false neutrals from upper gears to lower gears a pre curser to what is coming? Thanks for the advice!!!
