Now you see why I want the district rep to ride it. I could bring a dyno chart with a weak tit 170hp and have them say "What is my problem?", and we know good and well that is unacceptable So I want to be armed with info, have him ride it and show that it is earthbound for the most part, which in turn would cause a chain of events to figure out the issue.
It could be nothing more than the assisted clutch not getting the tension, although I'm pretty sure that is not it, I am very sensitive to slipping clutches.
Maybe a BOV that doesn't seal quickly in the transition between open and close and that wouldn't show up in a dyno run.
Maybe a defective or improperly aligned IMU, I need a to see a 2018 service manual to check that.
What bugs me is why don't I ever see the TC come on if the TC is intervening, much less ever?
I hear you, that’s a tough nut to crack, usually it’s an apparent warranty type problem or noise or something that can see, hear or diagnose but if you are down on performance harder to get resolved, especially considering the bad info. you got on power.
How does she build revs, have you tried comparing a video of another bike to see if she takes more time to run through the gears or timing from a certain mph to the speed limiter? Not saying this will be definitive but will she hit the speed limiter in 6th? Would be interesting to see a highway pull, running 2nd or 3rd-6th Dunno just throwing some ideas out there.
Your bike has different electronics vs. my 2015 but especially when I was just getting used to the bike & had the TC on a higher level, it would come on constantly, not even at wide open throttle.... But for the traction control not to ever come on even WOT in corners something is amiss, even 170-175rwhp, that’s still a 190-196bhp bike which should still easily break free the tire/activate TC, especially considering where in the revs the H2 makes hp & tq.
Hope you find some answers.
