I'd prefer if I could switch it off and it stayed off after a restart. If that was the case my vote and mode would be off.

But because it will constantly default to level 1 I just leave it there as I haven't found it intruding too much so far.

I just get on it and ride...I doubt I will ever switch from the standard setting...pressing a button sounds like nonsense...too much work... :001:

Mode 1 exclusively so far. It still wheelies over my favorite rises in the road so thats good enough for me. I can't tell if its cutting out or not - very seamless.

When KTRC engages, a light shows on the dash

I leave it in 1. never had traction control before - only my right wrist and I have to say my old ZX10 B1 in the wet was really good at teaching you traction control!  :034:

I bet you don't use turn signals either or make sure the Blinker Fluid is topped off  :001:
I don't usually have a big smile on my face, but when I do I probably am riding my bike.

I used 2 until I got more acquainted with her.  Now I use one, but I'm thinking of going back to 2.  My personal experience in all my years is that I don't want to wheelie or spin my tire if I need to be in a hurry.

Iíve hammered mine on #1 and the wheelie is less than a foot high and thatís it.  It settles right back down with no perceptible loss of power.  Same for a hard second gear hit, up a bit and right back down.  What a kick!  Iíve never spun the tire either, not on pavement.  I donít drag race from a standstill.  Iíve never tried #2.

1 -- but it is annoying that the traction control cuts in so early when the front wheel lifts.

Still breaking my RS in so it's on 1 all the time as I never ride in the wet unless I'm caught out.  :034:
