Another thing to consider is trying to gear your bike so you don’t need to grab that shift either way mid corner. That way you can get shift, braking and body shift done early. Then more attention to focus Ontario braking, line and getting to WOT ASAP on exit.

I had an older generation R6 in which I found a cheap fix for shifter problems.  For me the shifter travel distance was too far.  The same year R1 had a much shorter shifter arm and fit my bike.  After replacing the arm shifts were much shorter requiring less effort and felt positive.  Fairly inexpensive experiment if you can find a way to shorten the travel distance on either the rearset or clutch end of the cable.

I do have the +2 rear sprocket (I'm currently -1 front/stock rear) so Ill be sure to get that on, the plan is to def not downshift before the kink.

Thank you for the suggestion I'm currently using vortex rearsets (my bike is a 2012) but Id like to try something different for a change. Any specific ones you recommend?

Linkage or the angle of the shifter lever is definitely somewhere to start but it could be a mechanical issue with the transmission.  I have ridden quite a few R6s and did have an issue with my 14 R6 transmission specifically relating to downshifting.  Mine got worse over time and turned out to be an issue with third gear.  Just something to keep in mind.
