Dtc prevent wheelies?

Let me prelude my statement by saying i was on a private airstrip this weekend. Im not a big wheelie guy but figured the environment was controlled and no locals around to piss off. Was attempting clutch up wheelies but having trouble holding them. it seemed every time i reduced dtc they got alittle better. Does the function reduce engine power as soon as the front tire leaves the ground. I apologize ahead of time for the newb question however none of my previous bikes had much electonic intervention.

The consensus is that even with DTC at 1, it is difficult to start or sustain a wheelie due to the slight wheel spin at the rear wheel. The solution is either DTC off, of course, or take first gear to where the torque is more profound on your bike (40 MPH), throttle down, then snap it back.

I am too much of a wuss to try it. Keep us posted!

This makes alotta sense. i was able to get up about 3.5 feet or so but couldnt hold it. I was attempting in 2nd gear at about 40mph clutch in to pop up. I now have DTC turned off. Will try again today see if i cant hold the balance point. Appreciate the insight guys!

I am just guessing that a Monster would be pushing it, but might have a better chance in 2nd at 40MPH because of the lower torque range. Since this bike revs so much higher, a 2nd gear wheelie would have to start higher... and in race mode not sport.

Yes / no ???

The power wheelies it does in 1st and 2nd with DTC set to 5 are enough for me lol.

Have fun!
