Well guys.... i have mixed emotions right now!

Now keep in mind that i haven't put the chip in it to turn the electronics off. With that said the bike is a beast but once the power comes on the electronics kick in and make the bike useless in first and second gear. It feels like you are not at 100% full throttle untill 10k rpm. Tomorrow i'll let you guys know what i think when i remove all the safety features.

In the other hand i can't imagine how many times people have went through some of those OH moments and the bike's electronics have saved their life! So im glad i have a bike that has the features it does..

My 2011 was a base bike, without tc or abs. The powerband on the bike is like an R6, making a lot of noise without a lot happening down low then boom. Sounds like you need to turn the tc off. Hold the button down on the left handlebar until the yellow light illuminates. Just make sure you're completely stopped beforehand or it won't work.

I wouldn't turn the TC off. None of the racer do it. They do the ABS. Sport, Race and Slick mode gives you plenty options of TC levels. By chip I assume you're referring to the plug to get slick option too but you should only use it on the track and preferably with slicks.

You should join the S1000RR Forum, there are many members from the region that are very active. There is a lot of peculiarities about the S1000RR.

Definitely a nasty after 10k, especially after you pipe/tune it. For me and the type of riding I do, the bike wheelies so bad in 2nd and some times 3rd, I can't use the power at all.. I'm actually having a swing arm built for mine so I can pull it back 4" and take some of the fight out of it. I look forward to seeing how hard its gonna run when I can actually stab it in 2nd and be able to keep it on the ground.

I love a lot of things about the bike, then there is things I dislike about it as well.. It would be a great track bike if you're into that sort of thing. I'm more of a highway/sweeper type rider so most of the hard edged track goodies on it I never even benefit from.

You put the "Slick" plug in it yet? Do that and put it in Slick mode and tell us what you think.... Actually makes it feel normal...not neutered.

Here is the swingarm I am having built for mine, only mine will be shorter. I'm doing a 3-7" adjustable. I'll set it at 4" back.. 61" wheel base should still handle well at stock ride height and should help contain the 2nd gear wheelies.. Hopefully.

Yes its a Mcintosh Aluma Street. 3-7" with Nitrous bottle basket, built in air tank etc etc. Its still about 3 wks out from being built. Roy ordered an Aluma Pro for his ZX14. He dumped like $1900 on his arm with all the options.

Once I get the arm on, I'll figure out air shifter options. Then hopefully I'll be ready for some roll racing. Maybe take it to TX2K14 and run some turbo cars..
