I have a question about the back tire of my 06 6r locking up. I was rounding a turn the other day and someone cut me off in a car so I had to stop rather quickly. I was just coming off a light and was accelerating and was about to change into 3rd so I geared it back down into first, from second, and when I did the back tire locked for a second and skidded a bit. This is the second time it has happened to me and I was wondering why? Is it because I geared down at to high of on rpm? I thought that the new slipper clutch on these bikes was supposed to eliminate that. Also, the rear tire on my bike is nearing its end so there isn't much thread left on it, don't know if that might have made a difference. Also, I wasn't hard on the rear brake, so don't think that's why it locked up. Anyone got any ideas?
