Fixing technique is a lot harder than changing rearset brands though, lol
I do need to work on BP, the problem is my Woodcraft clip ons are still too high even though they are mounted 5mm under triple clamp. Can't get my shoulder any lower.

The only way I can think of lowering clip ons further would be to cut the fairings and make room. Is that what experts are doing?

Here's a pic of my BP, you can see what I mean with clip ons.

Looking at your pic, you seem to be really close to the tank, that doesnt allow you to open up the hips. Your shoulder is not looking at the turn, its facing away. Its really hard to bring down you head this way. Also, your outside arm is not on the tank/straight. Its not really the clipon thats hindering (in my view).

Please see attached, if that helps. If shoulder faces the turn, neck doesnt need to turn for you to see through the turn. Fatigue will be a lot less.

@J934 I think your BP looks good based on that picture. Sure Dock-ram's is a bit better, but there are plenty of really fast guys out there that don't look like Rossi on a bike lol Notice though that your knee is on the ground and yet you still have a good 2 inches of clearance before dragging any pegs, toes, or other hard parts? That's what you want, that looks good...so I'm not sure how you got that much lower to where you hit the peg on the ground. You sure you didn't lose the front first, before dragging anything??

Thanks, great advice, I will practice in my garage with bike on stand once my hand heals. I may be able to race in late Oct again if healing goes as planned.

This turn is a little slower than the one I crashed on (at least, I take it slower, others may go faster). We'll never know which one came first, front or peg, but I've taken many good lessons learned regardless, thanks to you and others.
