A little tech, S1000RR

A. Power Mode: Rain

The effect is to cut power to 150 bhp, reduce torque, and the throttle response is more gentle.

Rain with Race ABS

The braking force is applied to both front and rear wheels;

Rear wheel ABS operates even when only the rear foot brake is used;

The system detects if the rear wheel is lifting.

Rain with Race ABS and DTC

Wheelie protection operates

Reduces rear wheelspin

Increased traction and stability even when the frictional coefficient spikes suddenly



B. Power Mode: Sport (which is the default setting)

Full power (193 at the crank, approx 180 rwhp) with a fast but smooth throttle response

Sport with Race ABS

The braking force is applied to both front and rear wheels;

Rear wheel ABS operates even when only the rear foot brake is used;

The system detects if the rear wheel is lifting.

Sport with Race ABS and DTC

Wheelie protection operates

DTC is slower to intervene than in Rain Mode, so slight drifts are possible when exiting corners



C. Power Mode: Race

Full power but instant throttle response

Race with Race ABS

The braking force is applied to both front and rear wheels;

Rear wheel ABS operates even when only the rear foot brake is used;

No rear wheel lift detection

Race with race ABS and DTC

Wheelie protection operates

DTC even slower to intervene so longer drifts and brief wheelies are possible when exiting corners



D. Power Mode: Slick

Full power with an aggressive and instant throttle response

Slick with race ABS

The braking force is applied to both front and rear wheels;

ABS does not operate when only foot brake is used

No rear wheel lift detection

Slick with Race ABS and DTC

Wheelies allowed up to a lean angle of 23 degrees and for up to 5 seconds

Which mode are you going to spend the most time in--be honest.

Where will the Arizona mountain king get knobbies to fit his 17" wheels?

I suspect, however don't really have a clue, that most of my riding will be in the "B" mode.

Obviously the initial rides will be in the rain mode.

Have to find those knobbies..........................

did you notice that the bike only requires 89 octane gas?

89 octane is great because it's getting hard to find premium gasoline that isn't laced with ethanol. That's for another thread.

S1000RR and Nail24 ----

What I read in my owners manual specifies super unleaded fuel required. Am I misinterpreting something with regard to the 89 Octane issue?

I'd just stay away from the ethanol. It's not good for the bike unless they say it's OK.

I spent my whole last track day in Race Mode. Worked well, I was not fast enough to active DTC or ABS all day. Mid Ohio is a pretty smooth track though with no big hills to wheelie over. Did raise the rear wheel over some harder braking.
