How do you guys hold the throttle? I cant seem to get WOT without doing some weird gymnastics with my wrist. Bike is a stock 17. Just curious what the best practice is for control of bike(braking & accelerating)
The rule I was taught was to keep the top of your wrist flat with the back of your hand when you're at cruising speed. Minimizes the stress placed on the wrist and reduces fatigue - especially on a sport bike. For WOT I just shift my grip forward onto my lower palm, grasp & hold on tight and crank that soldja boy ?
In my MX clinics, they told us to turn the throttle like you would a doorknob. That allows you to get to wide-open w/o overly exaggerated arm/wrist movement. It seems to work for me in my mx and street riding. But basically same idea as what FZ1guy is saying.
I've got the same bike. I just grab the throttle with my hand slightly curved over it coming out of a corner. Also, getting an ECU flash helps with that. I've noticed with my Bauce tune I hit WOT earlier. No I'm not shilling but I did have a good experience with them. Akro full exhaust plus Bauce tune made the bike feel like a rocket.
