Buy, borrow, or rent, Keith Code's book "Twist of the Wrist". Looks like you can buy a DVD from him now: http://www.atwistofthewrist.com/
He's one of the most famous road racing instructors, Calif Superbike School. You'll learn techniques that will let you go faster safely.
#1 Trust your tires and your bike. Don't let up off the gas in the corner, it will go upright and off the road. Concentrate on the apex and exit of the corner, look where you're going. Your bike will lean over way further than you think it will. The edges of your tires will tell you how far you're leaning over. If you scrape a peg, that's about it, right?
#2 Lean your body more than your bike, not the other way around. Keep your head level, look over the grip that's on the inside of the corner.
#3 Scrub speed before
you get to the apex of the turn, power thru and out of the turn.
#4 Don't ride over your ability, get out of control. Be ready to avoid an obstacle or vehicle in the middle of the turn.
That's the basics. And I'm not even fast. In a group of 20 riders I'll be in the back third. I just cannot get fast in blind right corners, I don't trust what I cannot see.
The V likes to sing, will generally run 6-9K rpm when carving twisties. It has nice compression braking so brakes aren't often needed. And the power is so linear from 4500 up you can pretty much pick a gear for a given stretch of road and just wind it up and down. It's a very easy bike to ride and the suspension is pretty good so it stays steady in the corners.
I keep thinking one day I'll do a track day with an instructor just to develop more skill, refine what I know, and pick up some new techniques.
One of the best pointers I got, came right from this forum - on up shifting. You hold pressure on the shifter and when you pull the clutch it shifts. Wow, never heard that in all my 40+ years of riding. Shifts are instant and silent, it's just screams from gear to gear.
