Have just got in from a lil blat to Bury Hill and back. Such a lovely day I thought I'd try turning down the DTC a bit (was on level 6) so put it on to level 4. I still found it quite invasive and was wondering if any "S" owners bothered leaving it switched on at all or just turned it off entirely?
it has def proved its worth in the slippy conditions over the winter thats for sure. When I get it to Brands Hatch I'll have a proper play with its level settings to see how much difference it makes in a controlled environment. I think I'll drop it to level 3 for my next ride.
Again no experience of using one myself but after talking to various owners that have either DTC or Bazaz TC it does seem about customising the setting for your style and conditions. so experimenting is the only way to work out whats best for you where and when
I messed around with mine at Cadders last year but I had a very worn out rear as well! I turned it to try to reduce wheelies over the mountain it, apparently it don't do that
Also noticed that coming out of corners such as barn, it just kept on working so turned it down and it was much better but then found it was the tyre sliding around. Unfortunately never got to try it again nextday with new rubber as it broke
On the road it usually comes on when there is some grip issues such as gravel and slippery surfaces but still almost had me off outside Loomies, but reckon that was more cold tyre as it was January
That sounds like something is wrong as it really should not do that! I tend to be careful on the throttle so not a usual thing to get the bike out of shape.
No the bike broke down with the radiator splitting. A known problem but very dissapointing to say the least.
I had my suspension set up over at Crescent Motorcycles on Saturday and that seems to have stopped it pitching me over the front, seems my front rebound and compression damping had been wound right off so the only thing doing anything on the front was the springs. The ride home felt loads better and even with the traction control kicking in there was no diving of the front to throw me forward Just as a point of interest, Crescent only charge £35 for the suspension set up, compared to P&H charging around £100 for the same I am well chuffed, nice and friendly there too. I am taking the bike to Brands for a trackday on the 12th April so will play more with the DTC then and try turning it off etc as well. To be honest I don't think it is really needed in dry conditions if you know how to respect the throttle, just seems a waste to spend so much money on a bike and then turn off the toys that bumped up its price in the first place lol
