I disagree with the previous post; you should definitely try to figure out what you were doing else your confidence will plummet on the track and that corner, specifically
Yes, it was (mis)directed at you. Should have re-read your post more carefully, sorry about that.If that is directed to me, let me clarify, I didn't say don't figure it out, I said "Don't beat yourself up over it..." No expert here (or even a great novice) I did trackdays for 9 years and raced plus 6 years, definitely try to figure it out, sometimes you just aren’t going to figure it out. It’s like QTip said “take that sucker right back out to the track...!”
My only real recommendation to anyone is if you want to get better find some quality instruction and practice.
I'll swing by the shop and take a look. Glad your OK!
Thanks, and no apology required I see an Austin location we all need to hook up for a ride. That is if you let me come with my Hyper, no Streetfighter until I sell the RSV1000.Yes, it was (mis)directed at you. Should have re-read your post more carefully, sorry about that.
I guess a good dampener would have avoided the headshake, am I wrong?I was about 110mph on the front straight at MSRH. I downshifted to 3rd gear before the turn (Carousel...a sweeping left). I was about 90mph when I entered the turn. Throttle was engaged, but was keeping my speed constant through the turn. About 1/4 of the way through the turn the handlebars started gyrating left to right and I was drifting towards the outside of the turn. I decided to stand the bike up and take it off the track...hoping to keep it up. I ended up crashing when I went into the grass.
Has an Ohlins kit for the SF. Check out the Motowheels project bike thread...I guess a good dampener would have avoided the headshake, am I wrong?
I'm not crazy about the one they give you at all.
