Best to play around on the track where conditions are predictable and you can repeat the same scenario. Flip through the modes and youíll clearly see their affect.

Or just read a book lol.
Never ever does tc1 ignite with front up.

wrong, unless you’ve altered the TC map in the ecu (which you haven’t, that’s for “dorks”) then it absoloutly does.

I made a video to show what happens when you go full throttle in tc 3 2 1 and off.
please excuse the lack of editing.
Ps. Dont rely on the tc stopping wheelies.
Ive had gen4 bolt upright with tc2 on.
It seems to stop trying to control wheelies over a certain rpm and it can catch you out.
Video.

That's because the gen 4 doesn't actually have wheelie control

Well it may only be called traction control but from my track videos you can see the traction bar going across when the front lifts and sometimes it brings it down.
I think the traction map needs adjusting so it cuts the power a bit more and for a bit longer.
Traction on the gen4 isnt the worlds best but i run 1 most of the time and usually 2 on a trackday as it makes they tyre last longer

It does if your bike is running the way it's supposed to.

More TC actually lessens tire life.

The gen 4 doesnít have wheelie control, when the front tire lifts it detects a speed difference between the two wheels and cuts power brining the front down. As said above, it wonít always save your bacon so donít expect it to bring down some 12 oíclock wheelie but it will generally keep power wheelies in check as long as they arenít too high. My avatar is 2nd gear full throttle, Tc 1 and reduced through the kit ecu. Much higher than that and itíll pause for a spilt second and then up she goes!

Strange. My own experience is i cannot get 2 x 20m sessions without destroying the tyre with tc off.
I prefer tc1 coz it still has a good level of cut when you get on the gas whilst on full lean without being too intrusive.
But for me and my riding style i use tc2 to make my tyre last a full trackday

Again thanks for the replies. Seems to be the anti wheelie cutting the power. TC in the book, allows "power slides and wheelies".
