Traction control
I've had my 990r on TC3 for 10000ks. Not really sure f I've ever noticed it working. Bit nervous to crank it too hard out of corners to test it. What is the setting most common out there. Also are you guys confident in its effectiveness.

Sorry to disipoint you but..
I have it on setting1 to 8 on my 2012 1090RR
and it does nothing!!
tryed both in sport and regular mapping , still no results
Nearley lost the bike twice in the rain...
Been to the dealer about this, and they say the factory knows off the problem and solved it on later models with adding a kind off alu ring
near the rear brake with more pic up points, unfortionally it can not be changed to fit our bikes..

I agree with pikfee . My 920 is set on level 8, the most sensitive and had what felt like a big moment in the rain on a sweeping corner the back stepped out . It felt a lot but probably wasn't , even so I hoped traction would have stopped this sort of thing. I don't trust it . Couple of the mags here in the uk also struggled to get it to function.

Interesting, Mine is set on 3 (I think) I thought I could feel it kicking in gassing is up while still tipped in, I know on my R6 if I gassed it up at the lean I was on the rear would light up.

Might have to go out next weekend and play with the settings and test it.

No rain here to test it in, but I've had the rear spin up exiting corners many a time. It does feel like it tames itself, maybe just regains traction. I'm running in level 4.

My right hand pretty well knows how to control it too, it's just slow in getting the message from the brain.

Interesting, I've not changed my setting from sport since the day I bought her, prefer to use my wrist control and riding knowledge to keep back wheel spin in control rather than rely on gadgets that offer false sense of security

My understanding is that the TC is very basic and is only looking for a spike in revs. I believe I have had mine activate, when I accelerated on a corner that had lots of dust from construction trucks. The back slipped out quite a distance and then just settled itself.
Pilfer, I think your dealer is talking about the ABS system, not the TC.

Based on my riding style and road conditions, I have settled on sport mode with the TC set on 5.

I've had a few slides on slippy bits of road & the bike comes right but I really don't know if its just luck or amazing lack of skill on my part.
Hopefully more riders will share their theory's.

Ill test this on the weekend. find some dirt, spin it up see what happens and report back

I keep my TC set at 4. It definitely limits wheels spin. I tried a few brake stand burn outs, and it won't really do it. When I turn the TC off, she lights up.
