Traction control.

This was on a trackday in france at Folembray.
I have had this twice, but it just shows how TC1 can help you out!

Sweet! Good catch. It doesn't always happen like that I can assure you. I've had my bike throw a massive tank slapper in TC1 before now on a straight road. Mind you, I was kinda asking for it

Mine gives me quite a slap coming onto the start straight ever lap at this track.
It feels good though!


Lud that was a very warm day, i was happy with how it had gone, glad my mate was behind me too.

I managed to get out for a brief 60 mile ride last week, first time for about 3 months.
It was cold but dry so I was on winter setting TC3. Lots of flashing from the TC light accelerating out of bends, gave my ego a real good massage.

Is it really the TC1 in action, or you instinctively easing off on the wrist when you sensed it?

I've had similar situation at times and have never seen TC1 kick in. TC2 or 3 may have helped, but I wouldn't know, cos I'm never on those setting.

I never saw the frequent flashing I normally get in the dry on TC3 when I once changed to a 55 profile tyre. It was much more difficult to make the light flash.
So I'm wondering if using a 55 profile tyre narrows the safety margin that Suzuki intended.
Anyway I am back to the original 50 profile and happily flashing away.

im thinking where the taller rear tire turns a tad slower then the 50 , a little slip reads normal..theres a larger margin of error before tc activates
