Traction control

I have changed rear shock for a nitron r1 shock and love it as well as chenged rear tyre to a 190/55 profile. Now I hardly ever get the traction control light to come on even when on mode3 and going for it. Not tried it in the wet yet.
Has a anyone else experienced the same or no how to check the system is working correctly ?

Any decent rear shock replacement and a 190/55 transforms the bike into something fun to ride. Good choices!

Don't worry about it.
It's most likely the better quality shock is keeping the wheel in better contact with the ground. Mine is exactly the same
Go find a bit of gravel and wheel spin it up if you want to check it but i'll put money on it being a quality shock

If the overall diameter of the tyre changed than your tc and abs won't function properly because it is programmed to see the stock values changing diameters changes rpm this might be corrected with ecu tuning but I'm not 100 on that since I haven't gotten my hands on ecu flash software yet some one else here with more experience might be able to chime in

I don't think ABS is affected as it is looking for a locked wheel - doesn't matter how big the wheel is, locked is locked.

Changing to a 55 profile instead of a 50 is a small percentage difference, I have a 55 on mine and my TC works fine. I can still get my stick Pirelli SuperCorsa SP to slide and the TC to cut in on any setting. How big a slip does it need for the TC to cut in on the three different settings, I think more than single figure percentage difference
