    3 stage traction control

    I was wondering if anyone could assist me with the 3 stages of traction control available on the 2014 models? I presume that it is max, medium and low, 1 bar meaning the lowest setting so allowing for some wheel spin and 3 bars for no wheel spin? Does someone have more experience with this and could you share what settings would be best for certain road conditions i.e. off road vs wet?

    I guess this also greatly depends on riding experience, so for the average Joe that has never ridden off road I guess max traction would be good, but then would this also apply to wet roads? Where and when would you use medium and low settings in your opinion?

    For off-road use I think most people would recommend turning OFF both traction control AND abs braking!!!

    but my CT is a 2012 so I don't have the options that you may have?

    You are right, the setting are min., medium, and max. traction control.
    If you hold it 2 sec. the TC will be completly OFF.
    Honda does not give a % of spin allowd for each setting.
    They only say it measure the difference in rotation between front and rear wheel.

    Wich setting you choose depends on how much you wanna play.   :007:
    In all tree settings the TC comes in smooth and correctly.
    Off road : minimum or OFF
    Wet road : Full or medium
    If you are in deep mud, turn it OFF to keep traction even when to front wheel
    is standing still.
    Or when you want to wheelie.  :164:

    Every time you switch IGN. it will start in FULL TC

    Thanks Lexus, this information is really useful. I noticed on another thread that you have the mmotoparts crash bar. Are you happy with them and could you give me an estimate on time for delivery?

    The crash bar is ok !
    Good quality and finish.
    After ten days i didn't get any confirmation of my order, or track number
    so i made contact with them.
    They promised my it would be send the following week, and so it was.
    End good, all good . 
    All that took about  20 days i think to arrive in Belgium.  :002:

    And it doesn't matter the year of the bike, the ABS couldn't be turned off  :027:

    I can verify there is plenty of wheel spin with one bar on gravel

    If you want to turn off the ABS take out the FUSE or place a swith in the wiring   :164: you don' have it from me   :027:
