    When in user mode, if you go into the settings menu via the left hand switchgear, you’ll see an option called “setup user”. From there, you’ll see a range of options covering DDC, ABS, DTC, Engine (throttle). Within each of these categories, you’ll see options for “Rain, Sport, Race & Slick”. Essentially this means you can customise everything to your liking. Rain is softest/safest, Slick is least intrusive/stiffest.

    Word of warning:
    “ABS in slick” has no anti-endo/stoppie or rear ABS intervention.
    “DTC in Slick” has, for all intents and purposes no wheelie control.


    Sorry to hear you got a puncture, always sucks!
    Thank I watched a YouTube video and set it up as slick engine and DTC everything else as sport
    Seemed good but the end can just annoyed me today,I'm not a fan of noisy cans tbh

    If you ever ride on street you will never ever feel the difference, believe me. Been there done that.

    Strange that, in my experience the differences between the modes are night and day on street

    Ok, I should have added for my weight. It turns out OE springs do match it fine.

    The big difference with "slick" engine over "race" is the amount of engine braking...........even on the track I keep the engine in "race".

    Me too. I’ve never felt the need to go beyond race mode on track, it’s the perfect safety net for ambition over talent!

    Not a fan of noisy cans either...feedback IS important, you need to know where you are and what’s going to happen next with the power curve, but you won’t enjoy your bike if you suffer the constant drone on a tour, or get kicked of a trackday!
