dumb question

Ok, here it is. Coming out of a corner leaned over I crack the throttle and the front end comes up but the at the same time the bike stands back up straight. On my zx9 I never had the problem of it standing back up I could keep it leaned over and the front wheel in the air. What gives?

I dunno, but I think I just figured out why you have a list of totaled bikes!

No dumb questions, only dumb answers. Suspension set up and tires play a big part in this problem. Got ta get her set up right and this should lessen dramatically.

BIKES IS GOOD.

rebonding too quickly which is springing the tire off of contact from the road. crank in a few clicks at a time until you get her the way she likes to be riden.

the rear is not breaking loose, its sticking good and as far as the list of total's thats due to cages pulling out in front of me... not my skills. I did change the rear spring to a softer one and turned down the rebound damping.

you need to turn the rebound up...rebound is opposite of compression...taking compression out makes bike softer, taking rebound out makes bike spring faster and pogo...you add rebound to slow it down which is what you need.
