Just crashed my Zx9R on a track day yesterday. Luckily my brother was using the Blade so I took the Zx9 out as it had been on tyre warmers.. the bike was on Diablo Rosso Corsa's, and I had to wait about 10 mins to get our on track so the tyres may well have cooled down. It was around 10 degrees Celsius and pretty windy. I did too laps of the track , Bedford Autodrome , then decided to up the pace in the inters .. Proximately 1/3 of the way round I entered a right hander, one of only 3 proper right handers on the circuit (excluding a couple on chicanes etc).. So I got to the apex at a faster pace on the third lap, learnt over quite a bit , and opened the throttle and lost the front.. and lowe-sided at quite a pace.. bike pretty damaged but cheap to repair. Tumbling on the grass bashed my neck but bike kit did a top job.. not a bruise or cut anywhere.. Apart from an aching neck , just my finger tips hurt and I could not figure out why.. until I remember trying to grip the road to slow myself down ... Didn't work.. What surprised me about the crash was losing the front whilst on the throttle.. I thought you were pretty safe of losing the front once on the gas.. I think there rear shock may be a little soft as it's does get a little weight transfer on the gas to the rear.. Anyone shed any light on this.. ref losing the front on the throttle.. I was quite surprised I went down how I did. I'm thinking cold tyres and maybe a slightly worn shock. Just trying to justify why I crashed, though it could just be a lack of talent.
