Im talking about fast, no braking corners, with full lean...

maybe trail braking isnt applicable, only rolling off and maintaining till you stand up and wot...?

Rikke,

I think all corners are different but probably on fast corners you just roll off, lean + maintenece trottle and then pin it..

Check out 23race.com they have some nice vids on there from 2 AMA guys. They have some fast corners there.

Probably the best for you is to go to interlagos and try it!! :) see what works best...

On fast, no brake corners, it is really just a matter of letting off the throttle the proper amount and getting back on as soon as you can.

But of course corners you have to brake for are a bit different.

Let me just say this: there is NEVER an appropriate situation to "WHACK" the throttle to wide open. 1. That doesn't allow your suspension to work properly and give you full traction, and 2. If you find yourself at a place where you could be at full throttle, then you're already too slow with your wrist, because you could have been rolling the throttle on.

Go watch just about any professional rider, and they all do just about the same thing for any braking corner: They keep their speed as long as possible, then they get hard on the brakes, and as they dip into the corner they begin to release the brake in parallel with their lean until full lean and approximate apex, when they are just reaching the end of their brake handles limit, and immediately and smoothly transferring to rolling on the throttle, as if it is one control. They pretty much NEVER "whack" on their throttle, or immediately release their brake, it's always smooth all the time.

Remember, slow is smooth, and smooth is fast ;-)

I'm not driving fast - I'm flying low

"I actually just have my throttle cable pulled so its
wide open even when i start the bike. balls to the
wall is how i live, screw stoplights and slow people."

OP, there are limitless variables to every turn. These can range from conditions, asphalt, tires, weather, your skill, confidence, riding style etc. YOU have to feel what is right for YOU at each and every corner. No one on the internet can say you need to do XXX at each corner for X seconds.

[Track] Really fast corners and throttle...

Redoctober, maybe I need to bump down to L2 cause I must have missed all of this information lol.

Brandt preaches that if you're not fighting the rear for traction you can be on the throttle earlier, faster, and harder(still not slamming the throttle open but making it quick). Which I've been working on since I got my triple clicker and some GPAs.

Well, they dont' teach that in lvl2 either. We're taking ARC next week at ECR so I'm about to learn all about all of my shortcomings.

[Track] Really fast corners and throttle...

Have fun, was going to go to that but am opting for TT at the end of the month instead. Art should be a great instructor in the ARC class he works his butt off to race and be fast. I might take the next ARC at TWS.

We just had a mini-ARC at MSRH with him (RS is trying out a more individual instruction for lvl3-wanna-be's) with Art. He goes out and films you and other small group, like ARC but in lvl2 and no shirts. You just ride your own pace. Had an awesome time and good "you should be here, not a foot over there" commentary.
If TT ran a 2-day at ECR I'd totally be there. Just not worth it for a day, it costs almost as much in gas as it does for TD.

Yea Art always seemed super calm and reassuring maybe it's cause he is quiet lol.

Yea ECR is a drive, I just wanna sure up some lines and passing areas before the race there. I'm not very fast so the more comfortable I am with a track the less ill stress trying to sneak by people.

Saw the rain pics on WFO/HPC. How'd that work out?
