Is my Riding Style or Me Or Bike mistake

Hi,

I got one problem in riding with R6 2012. Previously, I rode Kawasaki Zx6R.

The problem is:

I change or downshift the gear from 3 to 2 during the corner, and the rear tire start to wobble which can cause high side crash.


I've done this downshift gear at my 6R without problem.

where went wrong?

Thanks.

You let the clutch out too fast after your downshift.

Que? 2012 R6 definitely has a slipper. I have not that much experience riding hard on a slipper clutch though - I have no idea how much they help. I do know that dumping the clutch too quickly on my 2005 will result in exactly the situation described by jacub though.

Ain't nothing wrong with downshifting mid-corner, just gotta be slow & smooth when letting the clutch out.

Re: Is my Riding Style or Me Or Bike mistake

You can downshift mid corner.... You just push the bike up a little and make sure you blip the throttle. The rear slipped for OP because he probably didn't catch the RPMs correctly.

Have you never gone around a long, decreasing radius corner? Or caught a false neutral on entry? There are situations where you need to downshift while leaned over.
