making right turns.

Alright so i've been riding for about a year now on my R6 and one thing that i can't get right is how to go fast around right turns. I'm able to take fast left turns but it's something about turning right that gives me problems i'm not able to lean as far into the turn as i can left. My chicken strip on my left of my tire is all the way to the edge but the right still needs abit more to go. Does anyone have any advice of how i can learn to lean more into right turns any practice tips. i just don't trust myself leaning as far as i do left.

thanks.

Re: making right turns.

I have the exact opposite problem. I can turn right easily and at speed. I have trouble turning left. I even had the same problem with my last bike.

Re: making right turns.

Couple things... They call um chicken strips for a reason... For whatever reason ur scared while making ur right hand turns. Some people have a harder time turning towards their throttle hand... Just focus on a few things, such as your body position in comparison to when you make a left turn, and also make sure ur not locking ur elbows, especially your right elbow when making a right hand turn. I good body position will have your face down near your mirror, try to kiss it, and your elbow well bent, as well as mostly just your outer cheek on the seat... Hope I explained that well enough... Get rid of those chicken strips! haha

RIP Richard Bishop. You're a great friend and someone I will never forget.

Re: making right turns.

Are you talking about coming up to a green light and making a right turn?

I find that I will go into first gear for these turns... I think I'm doing like 15 MPH, maybe more if the road is OK.

You have to make sure you're entering the right turn from the left side of your lane. Some people are already on the right side of their lane then start making a right turn, which puts them WAY further out on the turn.

Re: making right turns.

All excellent advice so far...

Also might want to consider raising your bike back up to stock...having it lowered makes the dynamics of the suspension different...plus the geometry might be off on one side because of the lowering...

I could be totally wrong, but just wanted to throw out the possibility...

Re: making right turns.

I have always been more comfortable at turning left since the day I started riding anything.

I guess I'm just not an ambi-turner

Seriously tho, you need to just keep practicing. Eventually you will get more comfortable making the right turns. Don't worry about the chicken strips. Mine were lopsided for a really long time.

Re: making right turns.

Get your suspension back to stock. Find a roundabout or empty lot and start practicing.

Re: making right turns.

Hey, don't forget your tire wears more on the left side due to the crown in the road. So if you're just looking at tire wear, the right turn problems could be your imagination.
