Wheelie control ??

Hi all, Just finished my 5th track on my 1299 race bike. Wondering if my wheelie control is working correctly.
On settings 2,3,or 4 if i'm in 2nd gear coming out of a slow exit corner , get on the throttle it seems to have no effect and rears up way to much and quickly to get any drive. In 3rd and 4th the front end comes up and down on full throttle almost bouncing. I'm using an aftermarket dash holder, on which the gyro is mounted . Is this normal or is there a fault. Help needed please.

Are you a pro rider? I mean throttle control still affects a lot. If you're not opening throttle fully until bike is almost upright, the thrust is heavy causing excess wheelies. I am also suffering the same problem. Rear spring was too hard for me and it got a better with softer spring.

But still I believe that with stock ECU traction control, power is heavily restricted until bike is almost upright, maybe 10-15 degrees lean and then the restriction is suddenly almost gone. And the bike rushes causing wheelies. TC to 0 and it keeps the line much better in exit. But I have to admit that I am not man enough to constantly drive with TC 0.

At mid field in club A grade races and improving. Wheelies have never been my thing , and cant really see the point, as you have no drive when the bike lifts past a certain point, probably 20 degrees. I've ridden my mates R1 and its wheelie control is much better than what my bike is doing ? Ive gone back to covering my rear brake and getting better results, but hey I thought the electronics would have made that technique redundant .

Is it possible the mounting angle is not 100% correct or should this calibrate its self . Not getting much help here?????

Personally, I find the WC useless. It's too unpredictable. I believe Sportrider magazine said the same when they tested it at Portimao.

That was what I was thinking , with it switched off , at least you know when the wheelie is going to come . Might try this in the future.
Thanks

I have found that on the track the Traction Control settings limit the bike much more than simply the Wheelie control..

At the track I run the TC setting at level three and the Wheelie control at level 2 (and that is with one tooth up in the rear) .. It does wheelie some but overall it pulls strong.. I always run it in Race mode street or track so I don't have any variation on the throttle response. If it is wheeling too much try shifting up a gear. The bike has a lot of torque and can usually pull pretty strong.

I've found that wheelie control is unpredictable when there is an incline or decline...even slightly. It's never surprised me on flat ground.
