Just picked up a 2007 1098 and took it out for a little ride on one of my favorite twisty roads. I just came off a late model zx10 and have ridden this road for years, with it and many other bikes and never had this happen. I was running upper 70mph went into a left sweeper in 3rd gear and got on the gas pretty good, the rear tire spun and I almost high sided. Obviously this got my full attention and went to the house to confirm suspension settings and tire pressures. Been tweaking the settings but the bike still wants to spin if much throttle is applied. Tires are almost new continental contimotions and definitely not my first choice of rubber, but still they are decent tires and I've never had this problem with any of my prior bikes. Any ideas, thoughts, suggestions, as my confidence level with this is a little low at moment.
