    It does affect performance, for example, when you are in an S corner, it can make your transition faster or slower, or more aggressive. It depends, also on your view, if you lower or raise the angle of the head, the bike balance is affected depending where you ride, either foward or back, etc.

    in the simplst terms -

    lean in = best mid-corner speed
    lean out = best turn in
    neuteral = somewhere inbetween.

    but, for instance, the further back you sit in the seat, the more traction youll have under braking as well as more traction to the rear wheel at corner exit. but, youll also understeer more.

    Well... I don't really use it when tunning bikes, i've mainly got to a setting where i'm comfortable with any bike, the bike I found the best to tune this with was the honda CBRs, I have a 600 and a 1000 setting, I feel like the CBR is a very neutral bike. Then again, it's just me being weird...

    Rider Position doesn't affect as much as driving style, so i pay more attention to my technique than the Rider's position.
