Consider the following situation.
Exiting a medium speed turn (K5) into the main straight at the local track. 2nd gear at about 8-9k, speed about 120-130 km/h.
As I (as gently as I can) wind up the throttle, the bike really tries to wiggle its head.
The main straight that follows the turn is somewhat short (i.e. about 580m, 200-220 km/h tops).
I've tried short-shifting into 3d gear, but this puts me out of the engine's sweet spot and I lose speed.
If I stay on the gas I spend 200 metres with the bike's front-end wiggling...
Although I am not 100% correct on my body positioning I'm pretty sure that I am almost there. Exiting the turn I keep my body to the inside, pushing my external peg, and countersteering a bit in order to get the bike as upright as possible as early as possible.
hmm.. now that I think of it maybe after
exiting the turn I am doing something wrong while getting to the fully crouched position... and this is what upsets the bike...
Nevertheless, if my body positiong/input is correct (i.e. holding the bike with my feet, not pushing the bars etc.), will fitting a steering damper allow me to get on the gas harder?
