I was wondering how people keep the bike from sliding sideways when they launch off the jump. I know not to chop the throttle, I am very smooth when using the throttle and I had my suspension revalved and a softer spring. Also the sag is set right. I just wanted to know if there is any body positioning techniques you can use to help not make the bike slide out going off the jump.

Attack position (squeeze harder with knees) gas it all the way thru the jump. It sounds like your chopping the throttle near the top, one of my sons bad habits to finally overcome.

Even more important is to hit the gas again just before landing to pull you straight if slightly off.
