Right so some of us like a good strong bit of engine breaking, that's why we ride V-twins I guess, So I've ridden inline fours and they lack it massively especially the big bang R1 which I aint going to lie I **** myself when I dropped a couple gears for a sharp left hander and nothing happened I carried on going the same speed!!

So I've set my engine breaking on my bike to level 3 and it makes **** of a difference to the level 1 which is the standard setting I tried it on level 2 and it still didn't suit me so on 3 it's going to stay and plus the popping and banging is awesome haha!!

So what have you set yours too??

I haven't mucked about with mine yet, so is 3 more braking or less?

3 is more braking, I prefer it I haven't tried it turned of yet though, I believe the system works on how much the throttle bodies shut the throttle off, so If its on level one when you shut the throttle fully with your hand it delays the actual throttle bodies closing all the way if that makes sense, so that the back wheel doesn't lock up, where as if its on level 3 the throttle bodies close all the way when you shut the throttle with your hand, I think this is right but will research a bit more!!

Like the idea of it popping it's arse off, may try level 3. You managed any rear wheel lockups yet with it on 3?

Yeah it's Megga LOL!! I've use to do It on my streetfighter all the time lol, I remember one time though at brands I think I sat bolt upright locked the back wheel didn't think it was going to settle but had to tip in anyway lol, anyway I'm here to tell the tale so hey ho!!

I have gone thru all of the 3 modes and they are very different and level 3 does pull the bike up nicely.
I don't mind the rear wheel locking a bit - makes backing it in to corners fun and easy :)

According to the manual, higher settings are less engine braking (more intervention); max engine braking is achieved by setting EBC to "off". Anyone tried that yet?

I have tried all the EBC setting in Race and Sports Mode including turning it completely off, and Oh boy does it make a difference? **** ya...I prefer it to be on level 1 when i am riding highways, but for canyons and valley riding i did prefer it to be at level 3
