Okay so on power ups you bring it into powerband then let off and hit it wide open fast? Before I was just bringin it into powerband then I'd thump on the throttle.PVaultGuy said:Mattz, I'm still learning myself, but you must be doing something wrong. I have an SV650 and I know your GSXR has more power than my bike. I accelerate to 6500 RPM, shut the thottle hard, and bring it right back on, close to wide open in one quick motion. It's like snapping the throttle open.
With the clutching thing, I'm pretty sure the idea is to get the bike up at lower RPM. To do this you get the bike up to about 4k RPM, pull clutch in, get RPM into power range (6 - 8k RPM) then drop the clutch on it while keeping the throttle on. This allows you to get the engine in its power range when dropping the clutch. Keep practicing and let me know how it goes.
Gracias senior.PVaultGuy said:To power up any bike you want to use the fat part of the torque curve. On my SV650S it is between 6500 - 7500 RPM, this is where the engine has the most leverage/torque to lift the front end. So get the bike up to the fat part slam the throttle closed and rip it back open and she'll come up.
Don't slam the throttle shut once the front comes up. The front will come up, then you back off on the throttle a bit and it'll start to go down, give it a bunch more gas to bring it back up and click into second if you want to ride it out, or give it a little bit of gas (progressively slighlty rolling on the throttle till the front touches) and set it down nice and soft.. it'll save you fork seals too :bananaMattz said:Well I gave it another try today. Brought it to about 7k and let off then whacked the throttle, it came up a little bit higher today but when it went back down my balls met the tank... wow did that hurt. How do you guys keep from doing this?
