HOW TO USE TRAC­TION CON­TROL ON TRACK

MCN - - RIDING CLINIC -

3. OFF THROT­TLE

Coast­ing to­wards the apex us­ing mo­men­tum will prevent you from get­ting on the gas too early and run­ning wide.

2. SAFE LINES

Re­duce lean an­gle at the apex by tak­ing a V-line. At the brak­ing point, an­gle your bike to­wards the in­side of the track.

1. GET A FEEL

Set your bike’s TC to a re­ally in­tru­sive level so you can get a feel for the sen­sa­tion of it work­ing as you ride nor­mally.

6. EXIT POINTS

You’ll be com­ing out of cor­ners much quicker us­ing this method so look as far down the track as you can to get your exit spot-on.

5. RE­DUCE TC

Re­duce the TC ses­sion by ses­sion. Aim to get to the point where you can feel gen­tle wheel slip (not spin) as you exit a cor­ner.

4. OPEN WIDE

As you stand the bike up, open the throt­tle wide in an at­tempt to trig­ger the TC. Only do this from half lean and above.
