Using swingarm angle, chain pull and antisquat to maximize traction.

Figure 1: A typical sportbike layout, showing the relationship of the chain run and swingarm. The red arrows show the three forces that affect anti-squat: driving force, chain pull, and weight transfer. As sportbikes become more and more powerful, rear-end geometry plays a greater part in determining how well that power gets to the ground. […]
