hi there. This is for the manual AT only. Pre 2018. You mentioned gravel button so guessing you have a DCT. If it's a manual, contact Richard via email listed on the video, he can help you out.

I have made a habit of doing two left-hand clicks when switching the bike on to set it to position 1 - the default position 3 is only useful in very slippery conditions. Despite this, I can see somehow the motivation for such a module that remembers the TC position (see below).

Something else worth mentioning regarding TC is the following. When being off road, it is common to stop sometimes to decide where to go, discuss with colleagues how to overcome a difficult obstacle etc. In this situation, if one switches the engine off with the key, all settings are lost i.e. ABS + TC. But if one switches the engine off using the kill switch, the ABS setting does not change while the TC goes back to the default position 3 I forgot to change it at one such stop last summer and got stuck in the middle of a steep ascend with the bike refusing to climb it and me fortunately realizing the situation and changing the setting on the fly before the bike virtually stopped and started going backwards I can personally see the usefulness of such a module for the type of riding I do.
Or, if you know your stop is going to be brief,
stop the engine by putting down your sidestand. It will retain all settings.

Or use the kill switch rather than the key. :-)

Exclamation Retain TC while stopped

The trick is to put the side stand down while engine is running at a stop
without touching the kill switch or the key.
When you put stand down, engine will shut off but all the power to the ECU is still on -
thus you retain all settings including TC.
.There just saved 160$
