I can not seem to manager the foot\toe on the rear brake. So what happens is I pick up more and more speed topping out at about 120mph in second gear. I have the MIG high mount exhaust could this be the problem? Maybe I just plain scared to tap the brake at all.
I'm gonna keep trying.
Yeah, stand ups are much easier and you have so much more visibility standing up. Good luck.
1). What sort of position do you get into before you clutch it? Position of the feet would be helpful too? Balls/Center of the feet?
I use the balls of my feet kinda like your up on your toes sorta.
2). You do clutch it in second right? If so, is it easier to pull it up standing than seated? Trying to figure out how much RPM I need.
If your going between 55 and 65mph (say about 4th gear) drop down to second gear and you will not have to use the clutch at all. Compress the front end(push down then pull up) while rolling the gas and it should come right up for you. Remember to keep your rpm's at about 6.5 to 7.
3). Do you need to modulate the throttle to keep her going or is it easier to just hold it now that she's up.
Yeah, unfortunately I have been feathering the gas
, but I'm trying to ween myself from doing that. As I said earlier it only make me go faster and now I want more control.
