Remember to check/adjust your tire pressure everytime you come hot off the track and make nessesary adjustments.(With any tire you are using)

Ha ha, that's funny. I use only a small amount of clear lube, and it's easy to clean up after a day at the track. Don't look at any road bike I've owned though!!

Tire pressure and suspension settings aside looks to me as though you are hard on the gas at corner exit.

just go 1-2 psi up...
i run mine (Sc1fornt Sc2rear) at (cold) 28-28 and sometimes even 30-30 even on the road and i have no problems...
(problem is roads here are sticky as butter with 10w oil all over it...lol)
If you are not running at SBK levels of laps, going up on psi doesnt do harm...down on psi...well...check your tire...

I was going to ask about suspension set up too. I would suggest talking to your (OP) suspension guy. See what he says as well

The tyre pressure idea has some merit. The Island is hard on the left of any tyre cause you're leaned left for a long time at high speed. But I also agree the suspension could be involved. The reason I don't automatically assume its the shock is that it happened in the last session, just after I spent the first 5 sessions working on the settings with my suspension guy! But when I sent him a pic later and asked what he thought, he said maybe we need to do more work. So who knows? Guess I'll pay him some more and see what happens.
