Front gets light??

I took the military version on the Cali Superbike school so I got some training on how to corner. My question is when I get into the corner and have the bike leaned over then as I start to roll on the throttle I feel the front getting light is this because I'm riding "too high" on the bike or worst I'm giving it too much throttle? This is while riding on the street. Thanks fam

It's tough to say. If you are tipping the bike up real quickly while gassing it, that'll make the front get light.

When the bike is leaned, you are on the smaller/shorter portion of the tire. When you tip up the tire gets larger and the revs drop as it tips up. It gives the bike a lot of additional acceleration with a quick tip up.

I used to get this all the time on my 02 when I first started riding. Honestly, I ride WAY faster now and it happens even less. Your technique is probably flawed. Get to a track and have someone watch you. Get pics and look em over, etc.

Re: Front gets light??

Someone more knowleageable than me will chime in I"m sure, but how are agressive are you with your "roll on"? Or as you mentioned you may just need to adjust BP, kiss that inside mirror and make sure you have weight forward and you should be ok......

Correct me if I"m off please crowd

When you want to win, when there is no substitute for the best, when you don't want to feel the sting of second place, you really only have one place to turn.
