To traction control or not, that is the question

All,

Slowly starting to build out my 1000RR 2011, aiming to keep it as long as possible and make a major upgrade once a year when the g/f isn't looking...

Just put a remus pipe on and it is very loud, in fact in may be too loud! As a result thinking about fuelling options. I can pick up a PC5 for about 160 or a bike interceptor for 300.

Not fussed about the quick shifter as both models can do this, what the PC5 cannot do is TC and nor can it do data logging.

Prices I've had back to fully set up a Bike Interceptor is about 800 all in, for a PCV around 300-400 inclusive. That saving of up to 500 is half a new rear shock, or front fork re-spring.

For the money is the TC worth it, I imagine Bladeracer will be along and say you should control the right wrist and not to rely on a machine to do this. The data logging may be helpful, in a year or two I will take the bike to a track, so that may come into use about improving my riding skills.

Any thoughts welcome...

I think its personal preference. I personally prefer to ride or fall on my own decisions instead of relying on a computer.

You are right, better to become a master of the throttle than rely on a CPU.

Thanks for the reply.

if you drive only on the street and one, two times per year on the race track, its worthless to buy a TC, the cheapest "traction controll" will be your ass.
