Hard to see which lamp it is but if you put tape over two at a time you will know which one it is.

FYI The 2016 and up have an assisted clutch. Which means that as the load goes up the clutch pressure gets greater. It is also a slipper clutch and when the drive load goes down too much the clutch will loosen and stop wheel hop.

All the being said if it is a 2016 and up, it is possible for the clutch to slip momentarily, if the load is taken off and put back on suddenly. The springs are few and very light and it depends on that load to maintain clutch pressure.

It’s weird.
When I had the 18 44 setup this didn’t happen
Maybe it’s the 18 42 setup.
Could be the tire is slipping. Most dudes that ride at those speeds take off the traction’s on their bikes, not h2s but bmw Honda Yamaha other kawai.
Ima try n take off traction control n see what happens.
I’m pleasantly surprised bike still redlines in 6th with -2 in rear.

I did loose a bit of perkiness in acceleration but bike doesn’t wheelie as hard now so that’s a good thing.

Yes go into the menu and turn the TC off. I learned this back in 2015 when I took my H2 to its first LSR meeting. The TC interferes too much and it was immediately faster with it set to OFF.

Did turning the TC off manifest as better acceleration as well as presumably, a higher top speed?

It does as long as your throttle control is sensitive enough to catch and control any bad wheel spin. I found that the few percent of slippage between the tyre and the track, which is quite normal in LSR, was being sensed by the bike and the TC was operating. I could have played with the settings but switching it off was the answer.

Riding the bike I couldn't feel the TC interfering but people trackside could hear it. One asked if the bike was misfiring. Now it's just a smooth exhaust howl with a little pop when shifting up.

On the road I leave TC on. It's only when doing standing start miles down a straight runway with terminal speeds of (hopefully) over 200 that I turn it to Off.

I see. Interesting. Thanks. I've turned it off. See how it feels. Seems you have to turn it to off each time you start up otherwise defaults to level 1?

Btw, I'll be pulling the plugs soon, now back in country, and will post up.

Yes, a bit of a nuisance but probably safer that way. It only takes about 5 secs on the start line to turn it off.

On my ZZR part of the Ghul reflash was to disable that defaulting and the TC stayed however you set it. Could be something he now does for the H2 as well. Mine is one of the early versions of the ecu flash.
