when downshifting, try to get into the habit of learning at what speed your bike can handle without chirpin the rear wheel. for example from 6th to fifth I wait till im around 60, from 5th to 4th at 40mph and the 4th to 3rd at 30. You can trail break into a turn but not a good idea to coast and break while in the turn. Try learning at what speed you can take a turn at and already be in that gear range and just throttle through the turn, very light to no braking while in the turn.

As you get more familiar with the bike you can downshift while applying break just by blipping the throttle.
