It seems a bit like this. With the Fireblade it is natural to be leaning forward 'cause it is a sportsbike, but if I wanted to get a move on and hussle it through the corners - I would lean further forward and lower - to lower the centre of gravity and put some weight on the front wheel to help the tyre do its job. And maybe slide off the seat a little to do the business. Now with this upright roadbike, with higher wider bars I found myself coming out of the corners a bit wide, and I have sussed the problem. On this bike If I lean forward when getting a move on through the corners you end up with these wide handlebars much closer to you - and then you do not have the leverage to give a bit of counter steering because the bars are right up under your chest - and so the lack of movement means going wide on the exit of a tight corner. So no, or not much, leaning forward it seems - which is weird. But it seems ok to slide off the seat a bit. I can make the thing go round a corner - but not yet like that Fireblade. You could tip the Fireblade in and it could stay where it was put without any further inputs - if the corner was symmetrical, the Fireblade could carry on round the corner beautifully balanced without any further inputs - ' kin great. This GSX-S is taking a bit of getting used to, and the jerky throttle is not helping. So I have been going up and down our local Hill Climb hill, so as to be on a constant open throttle all the way up ('cause its a steep hill) and off the throttle on the way down - just to get the balance of the thing on the tight corners - that is all fine now. But the throttle - I will be taking the bike to JHS Racing to have a Power Commander fitted, and dynod with a map at the same time. Hopefully that will cure the throttle input sensitivity. It might never corner like the Fireblade but I am sure it can be improved.
