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

wide open even when i start the bike. balls to the
wall is how i live, screw stoplights and slow people."
