Crossed up? Could be the passenger seat...
If anyone is feeling at all crossed up on the bike.... I believe I've found the problem and solution
Testing the bike right after I got it with 3x AMA amateur Superbike champion Brian Evans, we were feeling really crossed up going into the turn, and running wide at the exit. After a lot of testing we realized its because the passenger seat doesn't allow you to slide your ass far enough back.
So I took the passenger seat off the bike, removed the covering, and then shaved back the foam seat by about 1" (all the way to the hand strap that goes over the top). This totally solved the problem. It was like night and day.... Much more stable in the turn (took away that "loose" feeling), didn't run as wide on turn exit, and most importantly, allowed me to lead with my outside shoulder.
Just some general info for ya...
