MotoGP crank rotation and race lines - F3

I just read this article and I have noticed the same thing happening with my F3 800. Specifically coming out of a turn if I'm leaned over and on the throttle the front end pushes. This article explains why and a little bit about how a rider needs to change the approach and exit. Anyone else experience this?

I read there differently:
“Turning into the corners is much better because the bike doesn’t push the front a lot, and there is no more understeer than before,” added the Italian

I am talking about corner exit, not entry. Yes, the understeer is reduced on entry... but the opposite happens on exit. It understeers on exit due to reverse crank if you are accelerating while leaned over.

Can't say I have experienced understeer on corner exit, I manage to hold a fairly tight line. My overtakes are mainly on the inside of corner exit.
