I weigh 215lbs naked. lol. So I'm probably around 240lbs fully geared.
Interesting, i need to try TC2 next time, i have it set on 1. I weigh 240lb naked so it's not that i'm a small guy.

I've always had the impression that with 3 mode KTRC, setting #2 will only allow you to float the front wheel at full throttle. So maybe that's the difference.

Start watching at around 7:16. Then peep my throttle hand whenever I hit the straights. It barely moves because I'm at or very close to full throttle.

This is a typical log after one of my runs and you see the front wheel speed starts to decline around 11k and the rear wheel just keeps on going, this is in sixth gear. when i do full throttle in fifth or lower the front comes up hard.
Fomen,

What type of data logging software do you use and what application to graph/analyze ?

Wink

Or neutral on my 68 Norton Commando Fastback (shift pattern properly on the right with 1st at the top). Best done while rolling to a stop rather than at a standstill....................

P. S. I don't have a problem finding Neutral on the H2.

well if we're comparing I'm 147 so my little ass flies on these liter bikes

regarding the discussion of front end coming up, it's been my experience that throttle control is the difference. If you come out of a corner and go WOT then it is going to jump, but if you milk it through the power band with feel you will get maximum drive and keep the front down.

When I did my first couple of LSR standing mile runs the rider behind me on the start line came up to me in the paddock afterwards to ask of my clutch was slipping.

I was sure that it wasn't but he said they could hear something going on. After some head scratching we decided it was almost certainly the TC intervening and I also found some weird marks on the rear RS10, probably caused by this.

On the next run I turned the TC off. Problem solved. I had to be careful about wheel spin but the terminal speeds were faster and the RS10 had that lovely grainy look it gets when working hard and no strange marks.

People are still talking about TC in terms of "how high will it allow the wheelie to go". Guys the H2 does not have an anti-wheelie control. There is no IMU on these bikes. If the TC does intervene and either hold a wheelie or pull it down it's entirely coincidental. Please don't get a false sense of security about Wheelies and TC - it could so easily end in tears. If the relative front/rear wheel speeds fall outside certain criteria, determined by the TC setting, then power is cut. This is designed to stop the rear from spinning up, not to stop wheelies.

That's what I do. I milk it to 10k rpm and then I pop it wide open. I try to be at around 7-8k coming out of turns depending on the bike.
