This video posted a couple days ago on YouTube and Facebook and I think it deserves a spot on the forums here as well.
It's the KTRC. KTRC 1 (no + or ~) I'm wheeling constantly in the first 3-4 gears especially full throttle using KQS but it controls it perfectly, I just keep throttle pinned and it lifts about a foot and settles back nicely. Love it.Great Vid.
I've got question here for you guys...You see how these riders are getting the frontend to lift in the lower gears and gassing it.They seem to be staying in the gas...and the front comes up and then goes back down smooth.Is this something that the KTRC is doing,or is it just the weight of the bike allowing it to come down that smooth?I'm leery about getting wheelifts at these speeds and gear selections.They seem to do this with ease and control.Mine feels like it's gonna keep lifting when it starts doing this...kinda spooks me a bit.So how should I do this?My Ktrc is on '1'.
'2+' stopped any wheelying on mine...which I didn't want.Even '2' stopped the lifts.How should i 'practice' these wheel lifts going up through the gears?Thanks guys...ya'll most likely already KNOW how to do this.
If you'd care to try something for us (Me) try setting +1 or -2 and see if the wheel still gets a foot off the ground.It's the KTRC.

...When you said you went to a PR4 tire this was the first thing I thought would happen. Th PR4 has a relatively hard high mileage center compound with extra rain siping. Adding power it will slip even more so setting TC lower may just spin the tire up more. My ZX14 used to spin the tire on quickshifts with PR2's. The PP2ct or PP3 is what i'm gonna try first change. Michelin has some cool graphics that illustrate the tread/compounds.One thing I DID notice IMMEDIATELY after installing my PCV and map(private tuner)that the rear actually breaks loose when accelerating HARD going up from about 3rd through 6th.No lift...just breaking loose momentarily.
