Is it really the TC1 in action, or you instinctively easing off on the wrist when you sensed it?
when it looks a big slide like that on film ...boy you really feel in from the seat lolMine 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 also noticed that and wondered the same thingI 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.

I like acceleration over speed & spend alot of time on the british A & B roads , dont care for and avoid motorways like the plagueTry one and see if you like it.
It makes the bike feel slightly more agile and tips in quicker, feels more planted at higher cornering speeds and lasts about as long as the fifty. Only downside is it's a little less stable in a straight line. You soon get used to it though.
Mostly, i think the decision relies on your riding style. I've always prefered a more twisty, shall we say aggressive route, so it suited me perfectly but the fifty will get you there just as quick but with a little more effort in the fun stuff and greater comfort when cruising
Try the Road 5's. I moved from the Metzeler M7RR cause I'm normally more sporty than not. I was a bit worried at first that I might be giving up a lot of grip and feel but I was wrong.I like acceleration over speed & spend alot of time on the british A & B roads , dont care for and avoid motorways like the plague
I like yourself like a "more twisty, shall we say aggressive route" too
so 55 it is.
I commute so Pilot Road 4's will be put on asap
50 gives you more of a footprint when the bike is NOT in a lean, 55 is the one for a larger contact patch in a lean. Most supersport liter bikes run 55 for this reason.The 50 profile is to give more rubber on the road when on full lean. The 55 will give a sharper turn in.
If you were to put 120 by70 front tyres on both ends, the bike would be handling like a racing bicycle, but the rear would twist out sideways under power in a slight corner.
Suzuki chose safety with the 190 width/ 50 profile, but a 180 with 50 profile could be good option against a 190/55 to get both pieces of the pie.
