I can answer this two way

I got more serious about my own fitness. This allowed me to get less fatigued which allowed me to run more laps. This had the biggest effect on my riding confidence.

Being more conscious of my throttle position. Paying more attention and making more of an effort to be wide open throttle as soon as I can. I think this had the biggest effect on my lap times.

Hands down personal fitness. I knew I was horribly out of shape before but was to lazy to do anything.

Endurance.

Last year I would only go out for the middle of each session or until I got tired. This year I have been working on staying out from the beginning to the end of each session. When my body gets tired I slow everything down and work on being consistent with each lap rather than worrying about my speed.

Changing out of the "slow" setting on your R1 didnt make any difference?

Trail braking for me. Diving deeper and modulating the brake to pull the apex in.

Excellent points.....I have the zero coasting engrained in my head also, from my motocross days. One thing I paid attention to at the National races....the top five to ten riders, when on the ground, were ALWAYS on the gas, or the brakes, no in-between....and that’s what seems to separate them from the rest of the pack.

I’ll be working on the other methods you mentioned in the coming year, I didn’t have a scoot to ride this season.....but I definitely need to work on trail braking.

Fitness for sure this time.  Being able to ride well for an entire session really helps to make improvements.

Riding multiple tracks seems to help as well.  I'm looking forward to picking another new to me track this year!

Now it's time to go to work again :)
