Question, I know cannot put right leg down when stopping/while negotiating corner. But can right leg be down after stopping, say to change gear? 

No. right leg can be down only at ebrake station. u should change to gear 1 before stopping.

Hi, may i ask. When at the outer circuit, changing gear from gear 2 to gear 4. Or gear 4 back to gear 2. Usually after clutch in, change gear. Release the clutch or the throttle first?

Release the clutch first.

When changing gear from 2 to 4, close throttle first. Then press clutch, then kick to gear 3. Then release clutch. Then open throttle. Then when speed increases and engine gets noisy, do the same again to change to gear 4.

 

When changing gear from 4 to 2, you can close the throttle to reduce the speed. Then press clutch, then change to gear 3 or 2.

Hi, i have questions regarding crank course. Hope someone can advise. I know we need to engage to gear to to make a sharp left turn before entering the crank course. For me i do not know when to release the clutch and there is once i still clutching in and i think the bikes dies o  me and i fell. 

I saw that below written release the clutch when entering the crank course, but this means that when im making the turn im still clutching in. But i thought we cant clutch in when making turn? Im confuse.

 

(In addition, when we are i  half clutch or gear 2. To slow down we can use either the brake or the clutch right?)

You are correct to change to gear 2 before entering the small lane just before crank course.

Yes, you still clutch in when you are making the turn. Once you finish turning , you then slowly release the clutch. You should have fully released the clutch just before you enter the crank course.

 

If you are half clutch or gear 2, you still always use the foot brake. At half clutch, because the speed is quite slow already, you can close the throttle and press the clutch also to slow down. 

Play with the clutch and throttle at half clutch and also at gear 2 and you will get the hang of it soon.

Hi, thanks for your advise. Just to double confirm that at gear 1 or 2 i can use either the brake or the clutch to slow down? 

And before the crank, whwn i making left turn and still clutch-in, that wont make me fall?

based on my understanding, clutch in during crank case will cost you some points.. but points is better then falling down.. falling down = immediate failure

Try not to brake, just remember to remove your fingers from the clutch/brake just before the first turn in crank, then you can start to play with clutch/brake after your 2nd turning.

 

& to your answer, yes you might fall if not enough throttle.. 

Kindly read thru at least the intro section first before decide to post any comments.... thanks... :cool:

 

Please proceed to this website/web link if you guys have any technical issues on Kawasaki Kips/KR150, I'll update the 1st POST as and when there's a new question. Newbies questions on the top as well. :)

Usually in gear 1 u can clutch-in to slow down. If at gear 2 you can use the foot brake first. Ultimately u’ll still need to judge the traffic conditions and act accordingly. Let’s say u apply brake in gear 2 due to obstacle in front, bike’s speed is too slow then u’ll need to clutch-in and kick to gear 1.

at the left turn before entering crank course u can still clutch-in. Just need to make sure the clutch is released slowly, and fully released once u enter crank course. Dont clutch-in all the way throughout the whole crank course and u should not be penalized.

All the best! Take things step by step, eventually circuit revision will be unlocked where u’d be able to practise a lot more and fine-tune your technique 🙂

At gear 2, you should use foot brake to slow down.

At gear 1, because the speed is quite slow already, you can close the close the throttle and press the clutch.. but if it's not enough, u can also use foot brake.

No, you will not fall. I do that all the time when doing the crank course last time. Cos you have to focus on the turning too. U can start releasing the clutch after you finish turning into the first part of the crank course.  By the time you reach the end of the crank course, you should have already fully released the clutch.

Sorry, in my earlier reply to you in the previous post, I got mixed up with S course instead , haha.

Thanks all for the help and advise! 🙏

When riding down the slope, eg. Carpark this long stretch slope, can use either gear 1 or gear 2 right? I mean both up slope and down slope. Thanks
