I've just started riding, got my bike and learners together a few weeks ago and have been trying to get as much experience as possible.. There's one thing that's bugging me on my FZR 250. I'll pull up to lights with my clutch down and try to kick the gears down to first. I'll keep pushing down until the gear wont get any lower and when I go to take off the bike will rev as if it's in neutral, but the neutral light isn't on. After bringing up the revs, I'll be able to kick it down into first gear and take off. This happens sporadically but it adds a few seconds to me taking off at lights and when you're at the front it isn't good.. The other thing is turning. I've been doing turns at granny speed, for fear of leaning over too much or falling over. Anyone have any tips for turning? At the moment I usually clutch in, brake into the turn, change into 2nd or 3rd (depending) and clutch out at the end. Any advice would be great.. Cheers..
