Question 08 CBR engine braking - May 11, 2009, 12:26 AM

Hello everyone
I have a 08 CBR w/ a slip on exhaust w/ PCIII mappings to match and I have engine braking woes. On curvy roads and straight a ways with turns at the end it is great. But I have to make a conscious effort a lights and other stops in traffic to make sure that I am handle/foot braking and no just allowing the engine braking to slow me down because if not I would most likely be hit from behind by someone who hadnít noticed me abruptly stopping with my engine's stopping power. If there is a way to reduce the engine braking slightly please inform me or maybe I should just look at it as plus and just leave things as be.

Higher gear. If it that big of a deal just up your gear. You should always brake with your front as that is where most of your stopping power is and will relay that message to other drivers.

inline 4's have engine braking? Ride a liter twin, when you let off the throttle its like tossing an anchor out back.

Confusing the issue, since before you were ugly.
