If you wish to set this level, press reset switch (14, fig. 6) for
3 seconds; the instrument panel will automatically quit this
page and return to the initial display, with the level setting
indicated on the right.
If you wish to set the next highest level, press switch (2, fig.
11) "▼"; to return to the previous level, press switch (1, fig.

If DTC is activated, the level setting can also be displayed
outside the page "SEtUP DTC" at the end of the TOT, TRIP,
TRIP Fuel (if active), Clock and T-AIR display functions.
The level setting will remain in memory even after Key-Off.
If, however, battery power is suddenly cut off (Batt-OFF),
when battery power is restored and upon next Key-On, the
Traction Control will no longer be activated (DTC OFF).

Tips on how to select the sensitivity level

The 8 DTC level settings have been calibrated using
the same tyres as those originally supplied with your
motorcycle (same make, model and size).
The use of tyres of different size to the original tyres may
alter the operating characteristics of the system.
In the case of minor differences, such as for example, tyres
of a different make and/or model than the OE ones, but with
the same dimensions (rear = 190/55-17; front = 120/70-17),
it may be sufficient to simply select the suitable level setting
from those available to restore optimal system operation.
If tyres of a different size class are used or if the tyre
dimensions differ significantly from the original tyres, it may
be that the system operation is affected to the point where
none of the 8 available level settings will give satisfactory
In this case is it is advisable to deactivate the traction control
If level 8 is selected, the DTC control unit will kick in at the
slightest hint that the rear wheel is starting to spin.
Between level 8 and level 1 there are a further 6 intermediate
levels. The level of DTC sensitivity decreases in equal steps
from level 8 to level 1.
When level 1, 2 or 3 is selected the DTC control unit will
allow the rear wheel to spin and also slide sideways on
exiting a corner; we recommend that this setting is only used
by very experienced riders on the track.
The choice of the correct level depends on 3 main variables:
