Yep that explains it right there. You're leaning the **** out of the bike, but not much yourself. Try hanging off the bike more.Aha so yeah it's definitely at least largely my body position, as I knew. I've kinda prioritised everything else over BP.
This is probably the best example from track photographer. Feel like it was earlier in day when I was even less focused on BP, but I wouldn't be surprised if I'm always this upright.

I had a look at rear shock today (figure I might as well fiddle there as well). Can you lengthen the shock while it's on the bike? If not I probably need some peg stands based on YouTube. At the moment all I have are spool rear stands and stem lift front (+some other misc similar stands).
Looks like at minimum I'd need to undo the bottom part of shock and extend there.
Lol...60 degrees is definitely not normal. That's MotoGP and WSBK levels. Ninja 400s aren't meant to lean that much due to geometry and tires. You'd crash before you get to that. Not sure what your "sensor thing" is but it's hard for any inclinometer sensor to accurately give you lean angle because it can only do so relative to a preset "zero", but most turns on race tracks are a bit cambered. So if it told you 54 degrees, depending on the turn, it could've been around 50 relative to the asphalt. I remember looking at my data logger from a race at NJMP last year and there was one turn where it read something like 56-57 degrees lean, but all the rest were below 52, so I'm pretty sure that 56-57 wasn't actually realistic due to camber in the turn.Thanks guys. Yeah I knew my BP was ****, but I didn't think I was hitting angles high enough to justify scrapes (54 max based on my sensor thing), so I was wondering if I had some other config to play with to increase that. Assumed 60ish would be kinda "normal", but may I've just watched too much MotoGP.
I'll work on BP next track day (Saturday). I know the theory, I just need to apply it. Have my first super entry level race Sunday, so maybe if I get my BP going well on Saturday I'll look like less of a mong doing my baby race Sunday
