Perhaps there was also an element of scrubbing in the tyres combined with overly sensitive TC.


I don't have TC on my AT but it is on my Triumph and most of the time on that bike I am not even aware of it until I am on a gravel surface and even then it is not overly intrusive.


I suspect a software change could cure the AT's issue in this regard ?

If Honda get enough feedback on this they might do a TC software update which is easy enough to do these days.

I do not notice TC on the street and just turn it off when I hit the dirt. No big deal but it seems worse than useless to me and I would not mind if I could disable it, permanently.

Hello,
Just bought a 2016 AT CRF1000-A and I don't find a difference in the engine power with or without the traction control set at any of the 3 levels. I haven't really pushed the engine really hard, maybe you only notice the TC when you accelerate hard or should you feel it at any rpms?

Flavio.

Doesn't affect engine power until a wheel slips.

So you think it was an issue with the spokes? Loose? Tight? Why might stainless matter? What did you swap out? Just curious, thanks!
