Having read the owners manual (one thing I hate is owning things I don't know how to operate!)...
Surely from a standing start it's the KLCM settings that would make a difference not KTRC (or else why bother with KLCM ?)
Don't understand what the guy in this video is demonstrating ???

Launch manages engine rpm to around 10k, for full throttle launches, tc limits wheelspin.

Edit- video shows difference between wheel slippage in modes 1 and 2

"Video shows changing KTRC mode from 1 to 2, what about changing between KLCM modes 1,2 and 3 ?"...Launch control apparently can only be used for a particular set of circumstances...Something you'd probably use for Drag racing take offs and such.It's actually NOT recommended for street riding as per the manual.Something to do with engine heat and some other things.:|

It's actually a little more complicated than that. While there is a clutch in launch rev limit there is no full throttle rev limit (other than the normal one) in launch mode. The ECU uses special ignition and throttle maps to modulate engine power in launch mode. Remember this is a throttle by wire bike, just because you hold WOT doesn't mean you get WOT.

In the case of launch mode you get 3 different choices on how much power you get when you drop the clutch and how quickly it ramps up.

So it doesn't limit rpms on the hit?

Edit I'll ask that better.. When your about to slip the clutch the bike doesn't hold a constant rpm like for example the new bmw does?

Apparently I misunderstood you. Yes, when in launch mode when you are about to slip the clutch while holding WOT the RPMs hold at 6,500. Once underway the power is controlled as I described above.

Has anyone been through the settings for KTRC yet ?

From what I can gather there are 9 different settings 1, 2 and 3 with +, 0 and - on each.

So I would have thought that you simply selected one of 1-, 1, 1+, 2-, 2, 2+, 3- etc but it doesn't seem that simple. Within the settings there are KTRC, KTRC1, KTRC2 or something like that.

I haven't really studied it that much and I'm sure I'll work it out given time .... but what are forums for ? :)

Does someone have an 'idiots guide' as to how you set it up ?

When yer in that KTRC mode..1,2 or 3,push the mode button in.Try that...I think that's how you get there,then use the left up down buttons to pick that +1,-1...and so on.When you get that setting where you want it...hit the mode button to lock it in.I think that's how it's working.I know I got in there cause I turned my KTRC off...and those 'modes' displays came up at one point.
