I've ridden my YZ250f twice on the local track now. My prior bike was a Suzuki RM125 and I didnt seem to have a problem entering berms fast and exiting somewhat, (not like expert/pro). I have noticed with the 4-stroke that if I'm in third coming towards the turn, I usually downshift to 2nd, pull in the clutch, and try to let the clutch out 40% in the turn, and if I have braked too hard, the bike likes to lurch/stall. Am I braking to late? I read up on the 4-stroke carrying "decompression engine braking", so am I trying to carry too much speed into the turn?. On the RM I could fly to the berm, pull the brakes and clutch and let out the clutch in the berm and carry out all right in 2nd, doesnt seem to be the case with the YZF. Any suggestions would be great...By the way, I love this bike....
