just a little update - put in several grueling hours last night getting to grips with using the Logitech gamepad, and i am happy to announce i'm seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, as far as controller issues goes.
currently have it set with left trigger for brakes, right for throttle, l/r steering with right stick, and after a while of tinkering with settings, it's starting to come together - hooray!
still need to sort braking out - currently have both set to one axis, with less braking power for rear, although i'm still having the back end step out a bit too often, but it's a huge improvement so far in terms of general smoothness, most especially in the throttle/leaning department. was testing all night with Aprilia RSA250, for starters, and i can report much improved stability in cornering and under acceleration as opposed to keyboard attempts, so given a few more good sessions like that, and i will finally be able to break the hold the keyboard has had over me, lol - talk about old dog, new tricks, hahah!  ;D
hold on to those lap records while ye can, buckos - i'll soon be trying to wrestle 'em away from y'all.... 8)

Combined brakes = NO.NO. For me at least.

Front brake on your right trigger, rear brake (and clutch) on your left stick. This is more or less the usual setup (some steer with the left stick).

I've heard of some freakin' fast guys (actually, THE freakin' fast guy) using throttle and front brake on stick.

i know combined braking is far from my ideal setup. will try your suggestion for left stick and see how it goes.
baby steps.....  ;D
MaX, please post your full full control setup here for me, mate - how exactly are you using rear brake/clutch on left stick?
brake on y axis, clutch on x?

Just my opinion, but doing baby steps you'll lose more time.

Just do one step: throttle left trigger, front brake right trigger, bike lean on right stick, rear brake/clutch on left stick, shift up/down on rear buttons.
Once you're confident with that (allow 4 weeks), you may eventually investigate other setups, but it will take time: this bloody simulator requires some serious practice and the controller setup is something that must be hardcoded in your brain.

Who? me? lol  ;D

I do use right stick for gas and front brake, rear brake on shoulder button (logitec pad, no triggers), pretty good  :)

Throttle - Right trigger
Front brake - Left trigger
Steer - Left stick
Clutch - Right stick forward
Rear brake - Right stick back
Gear up - B
Gear down - RB

so when you downshift.. your index finger covers RB and your thumb pushes the right stick forward for clutch..

good to see different setups, i guess we get used to our own way although i think you lot are crazy!!  ;D ;D ;D
