5 posts in this topic

Hi guys, I need some advice for this, how can I shoot out of corner fast without using too much clutch.Because I rode 2 strokes before changing to a 4 strokes.

I know this is bad on the clutch, especially on a thumper! :)

Thank you guys! :D

The trick to cornering on one of these thumpers is to keep momentum up.

You can't ride it like a 2st through the corners where you almost stop, pivot and clutch it out.

Its easier to take a wider, faster line on the 4st and its easier on the clutch also.

Also a gear taller may be easier to 'grunt' your way out.

Three tips I can suggest to corner quickly without hurting the clutch.

1. Tip the bike into the corner, not yourself. This has the effect of forcing weight down throught the centre of the bike and puching the tires into the ground

2.Pressure the Outside footpeg, this helps push the rear tire into the ground.

3. Weight Shift, ride it like a flat tracker. When dropping into a sitting position into a turn, drop on the outside edge of the seat. As you do this, carry your outside elbow high to keep the bike centred

Everything else will fall into place. But, as Matt mentioned, keep ytour corner speed high and try and avoid the tight inside line that requires a switch back.... Above all, lots of practise...
