I didn't know that higher lean angle means faster through turn. I always thought the lower your lean angle the faster it is.
Well when you say higher, you mean more upright or higher % of lean angle?
The faster you go the more lean angle is required to navigate a corner. But the goal is to have as little lean as possible to maximize grip. You do this is proper body position.
So, you get your body position correct, which will decrease your lean angle, then you are able to increase your speed which will mean your lean angle will come back, but now you are going say 10% faster than before.
From seeing some of you guy's signature, I think I know what needs to be done. Pulling my chest closer to the tank, head stick out on the side mirror, and butt cheek off the seat.
EXACTLY! You want to look like you are hiding behind the bike. (next to it so a person on the other side couldn't see you.
When in a corner, you outside forearm and chest should be resting on the gas tank. Putting your armpit directly over the gas cap.
...also, when you guys hang off the seat through a left turn, does it make your right foot slightly losing balance? I'm afraid that when I hang off the bike too much, I loose my grip on my right foot and won't be able to bring the bike up straight. This can happen on the right turn as well. I'm just using the left turn as an example.
Sometimes yea it will. But with you being in good position all of your weight (and strength) is on your inside foot (this example being your left foot) so you never actually lose control. You actually are steering with the throttle.
The body and throttle are always in a constant battle for control. You leaning say to the left is you PULLING the bike to the left (through the corner) in turn as you pick up the throttle the gyroscopic effect of the wheels will begin to stand the bike up and push it right. You continue to pull it to the left meaning you can continue to pick up more throttle.
You do this battle as much and as long as you can, until you run out of track and by this time you should be a good ways into the next straightaway.
Hope that all helped and made sense!
