Yeah it looks impressive and its a good way to keep from getting passed on the outside as your oppponent would be weary of you taking him out with you.  You notice that by the time he has his knee on the ground he bring the bike back under control apex's the corner then exits with minimal if any wheel spin...

If you want to back it in just go into a Decreasing radius Hot n Fast with high Rpm's then roll off the throttle to keep a consistent line as the curve tightens. "Nonslippper clutch" the engine will put drag on the rear wheel reducing the available traction causing it to get out of line just a bit. By the time you roll on the throttle to exit the turn as ong as you dont snap the throttle it will straiten up very nicely with out an OOOH **** moment.

my Z has a heavy flywheel so it creates alot of wheels spin while setting up for a corner.

Gear choice can compensate for that. A lower gear for more drag and vise versa.  Technically you should be on the gas oe maintinence throttle @ turn in and during but this thread is taking about backing it in..

I can't really see much of an application for this unless its high speed and braking late into a corner. Slow speed like he was talkin about seems like a waste of rubber
