F3- Traction Control and Engine Mapping information

Hi all

Maybe a dumb question but i'm after some info on what the electronic package on a 2015 F3 800 does and how it works. This is my first bike with a electronics package other than EFI so its all new to me.

Specifically the T/C. I have mine set to 2 but have never really felt it activate (except twice in the wet and once on a rough road accelerating from the lights). Again i think this was the TC activating as it was a weird feeling.

Will a light on the dash flash when the TC is activated like on most other bikes? as i haven't noticed anything

Engine Map-

I have mine set to sport but i think the bike has a bit too much engine braking for my liking. I have not ventured into the custom map part of the bike mostly as the buttons to do so are shitty to use and i'm impatient. What have you guys set your custom maps to?

Im after a semi quick throttle, full power(torque or whatever they call it in the manual) and minimal engine braking. What are you all running for your settings?

I know this stuff is in the manual but its explained in a pretty basic MV way with not much else so wanting some real owners experience with the custom map

cheers guys

Alex

I'm just barely got my F3 800 AGO #132 so I can't comment on the TC settings, I just run mine on level 1. I run a custom map. The buttons work fine it just takes a little while to learn how to adjust things. Here's my settings:

Power Mode: Custom
Traction Control: 1
Gas Sensitivity: Normal
Engine Brake: Sport
Maximum Torque: Sport
Engine Response: Slow
RPM Limiter: Normal

Here's a link to an article that will further explain what each setting actually does.

+1 On these settings. My 675 RC is much smoother with these Engine Braking and Response changes. I run TC on 2, but that's the only difference (not noticed on the street).

No lights on dash. Feels like a momentary loss of power - basically if you've ever run out of fuel, you know the cough and hesitation. That's when it's kicking in on a rough road (on setting 2) over broken tarmac. I've never consciously felt it more subtly kicking in than that.

I don't have the standard dash any more but if I remember correctly the TC symbol blinks when TC is kicking in.

I run everything on the the fastest mode/sport mode whatever its called except throttle sensitivity I run as road. I found sport made it just a bit excited round town and low revs. Once setup like that leave it in custom and it works brilliant

As for TC. I run 3 for road and 2 for track...I wouldnt honestly trust it like some other bikes (New R1 etc) but as a crude system when the wheel is near upright it comes in when you need it
