Wheelie a dct
« on: June 03, 2014, 03:25:19 PM »
Some say you can't wheelie a DCT but a don't believe that rubbish !  :084:
The V4 has the power and the torque to see the sky  :164:

Just curious what was your opinion about that  ?

I'm no boy racer but I only ever use the torque with the tc off to get the wheel up, as easy as fall out of a tree!...that's on the manual tho but cannot imagine the DCT will be any different.
Tomorrow is promised to no one...

Well i did do an unplanned one a few weeks ago at a traffic light on a wet road... but it felt so easy i was only partly surprised tbh!
Actually it looks like the TC had a moment of hesitation which is how i got to see the clouds!

Put it into manual give it the beans and you will get the front wheel up I know because I have done it purely by accident and I did poo my pants.

Did it on a demo ride with a DCT, too big a handful and the front comes up, like the manual the TC comes in like a sledgehammer and brings it back to earth

Nice pic Luke!

TC off, MT, big handful in 2nd gear, rear preload left on max and easy... "Oh Hello!"  :305: A pleasant surprise on a couple of occassions.

I seem to be developing a modicum of mechanical sympathy these days (on a bloody expensive, complicated bike is at the back of my mind I guess) so I take it easy in 1st. Plus DCT is slipping the clutch early doors in 1st.

I would say the manual gearbox is more the hooligan tool.

Nice pic Luke. Tres casual!
