765 RS anti-wheelie?
« on: July 04, 2018, 09:01:42 AM »
Hi

Does the 765 RS have any sort of "anti-wheelie" capability? I read you have to put it in track mode to get it to lift the front end. I love the acceleration rush and induction roar but I'm not keen on pulling unintentional wheelies on the public highways, after it happened once while two-up on a CBR600 (and that had ABS). Scary.

Should say I haven't got the bike yet. Collecting it on Saturday morning.

Cheers
JonB

Yes that's right. The traction control stops it from lofting the front.
The 765 is no widowmaker  :028:

Thanks!

Wasn't sure it has proper traction control but on revisiting the (rather confusing) Triumph web site I stand corrected. And relieved!

The anti-wheelie contract uses both the front ABS ring & rear ABS ring to determine any disparities between the two.
Fro mthis, you can either have Traction Control with Wheelie Control, or if turned off, neither TC nor Wheelie Control.

This does mean as soon as you have lift, the bike realises you are out of set parameters & it will cut the engine to drop the front.
Works as a very basic TC; can be frustrating when you're at a set of lights from filtering and want to ensure you pass the 18 poser in a S3 next to you & the engine just cuts when you have any lift  :112:

Hopefully in a couple of years they'll join 2018 like KTM have done (790) and put an IMU in  :031:

How much difference do the various TC modes make to how it works?
You can have RAIN / ROAD / SPORT / TRACK (RS only)

On the test ride I found it necessary to lean forward when accelerating hard or it can get "interesting" in the wind.

Steering damper is definitely worth the money the front end tends to become quite light with the right kick.

Road mode makes it very tame.
Most seam to leave it in sports mode.
It's a faf to use track and rider if you feel the need to pop up the front.

By the way, I noticed that the bike is remembering the riding mode between successive rides.

For running in I've had it in Rain mode.

Unless one has it in User Mode or Track Mode - either of the fun modes!
When killed and turned back on it then kicks you to Road Mode & forgets any changes to TC / ABS... forcing you to stop riding and pull over to change as these two modes cant be selected on the fly + the addition of turning off ABS / TC in the menu if you had those off last too.
