Rear end stepping out.

Anyone find a setting on the TC that helps reduce the rear slides?

I realize that it's bad posture on my part, but on downhill sweepers it continues to haunt me....

Hello There
THE TRACTION CONTROL WORKS FOR SHIT !!!
I have it on TC 8 and it helps for nothing
I use the bike for work and on damp cold mornings I lost the bike nearley twice!!
I had the modus on sport and the other mode
but it still has no affect!!
I reported it to my dealer, who in his turn reported to the importer , who said "they look in to it"
its been a month now, still no answer.
mayeby its time for somebody to start a good old fashioned LAW SUIT

THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS "TEAMWORK"

I'm of the old school..I ride a machine which is inherently unstable. I enjoy being in total control of the machine at al times and read the surface and road conditions avidly. If the only bikes available were crash proof computer controlled eco bikes I would rapidly lose interest.

I have ridden my old BMW on roads that are iced over like polished glass and not fallen off.That's the challenge and the fun of it all.

Instead of giving the importer a hard time..look into your own riding skills and consider ways of enhancing them.

Do you really expect the machine to deliver total stability under all conditions ?

I'm with gotojoe. I ride within my limits and trust to my riding skills, not some system that may or may not work. Getting the most out of the bike within your limits is more fun and a better learning curve for me.

Cheers

Maybe I'm just throttling on too early. Best to work on throttle control.

Red Baron;
i have an old '66 El Camino......0.030 over 454, 4 speed, ~530 lbft, it weighs 3200lbs
16 year olds come by and want to buy it..........

won't sell it to them.....its violent.....idle down the street in 2nd, blip the throttle.....it spins the tires and then slides them

its nickname? Capitan Sideways, it will spin the tires ALL the way through 3 gears

its not a race motor, it was my work truck for 200,000mi, it gets better mileage than my 910R (22.9MPG city/highway confirmed by the State vehicle inspector)

ITS ALL ABOUT THROTTLE CONTROL!

a 917K Porsche has 1,300 HP and weighs 1,600 lbs and has 36" inches of tire contact
you have say, 140 HP, weigh 650 lbs and have 2" of contact width

work the numbers...slippery right?
