    Rear end wiggle

    I have noticed that the rear of the bike wiggles under me when on the rear brake & coming down the rears quickly

    The first time was a bit of surprise but I almost expect it now
    If I had a second brain cell it would be so lonely......

    Sounds like a suspension set-up issue. Too much weight going over the front under braking.
    Anything more than two wheels is unnecessary.

    But I could also be popping the clutch to quick, as I approach a junction/roundabout foot on the brake gear down from say fifth gear to second proberbly doing 40-50mph pop the clutch & wiggle wiggle

    As for too many pork pies  :0461:

    Going to ask the obvious now but what rider mode and what setting for traction control and ABS have you got dialed in ?

    BabyD - I didn't know you were into twerking  :745:

    Its definitely a weight distribution issue.
    Place yourself correctly,
    try pushing your ass towards the rear wheel,
    also releasing the tension in the back suspension will help too.

    I think , a lot of guys are leaning  forwards too much at high speeds.
