    Hi, picked up my brand new bike yesterday.
    2 Questions.
    1) What does TC do?
    2) What is the best way to brake using this ABS system. Thanks IMG_5484.JPG

    Congrats on your new toy!
    With the TC switch on, ecu senses the spin of the rear wheel and compares it to your speed. If the wheel spins, engine pauses monetary to allow to regain control. Only had mine kick in a couple of times. I have had to use the ABS a number of times when drivers or deer encroached in my space, worked as designed. To use just jump on the brakes as hard as you can and don’t pump the brakes, the bike will do all the work. Saved my ass several times.

    You are welcome. My advice on the ABS was for panic situations, otherwise just use them normally.
