Wheelie control

Post by Cozakdenni » Fri Apr 26, 2019 10:30 pm

So, I have recently made the switch from my 990 SMT to a 1290 SDR (2014) and having a blast with it.
That beiing said, I'm still a bit afraid of switching TC completely off, even when doing (trying) wheelies.
Is there a mod of some sort that enables you to wheelie a bit higher before the TC kicks in? I'm not trying to hit balance point or anything, but it cutting in even when doing very smooth wheelies annoys the heck out of me :shock:
Hoping somebody here has an answer for me, since I dont really feal like switching of TC during the up-tempo rides just to do some wheelies on the boring straight bits.

Cheers!

Ah ok, I found some post from kev about a tilt sensor he repositioned a bit, but am still looking for some documentation about where that is located exactly. As for now, I'm leaving TC on and take the wheelie control cutting in as a 'your getting there' encouragement. :shock:

Not really, it's kind of all or nothing. What you might want to do is get the hang of it with TC on a few times. You can fool it a bit going uphill or over a crest, it'll also let you pop it up, slam you back down then raise it again if you keep the throttle pinned. That said the TC wheelie limit is really brutal and it will slam you back down.

When you're comfortable with it, turn the TC off then try your wheelies in 3rd gear by rolling it on hard from about 60 kph. Cover the rear brake and don't be that guy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WW36lv46-hU

FYI- I tried this tilt sensor mod and didn’t notice any difference in wheelie height.....
