690 Handel Bar map switch
« on: January 22, 2013, 01:05:11 pm »
Is it worth doing or do most of you simply stick to one map for all your ridding?
Does the novelty of switching maps wear off ;-)

Best place to buy the switch?

Thanks

I simply stick to the 1 map setting for all my riding, I have tried all 3 settings and now just run the bike on the standard map setting.

I run mine on 3 ...had it on 2 for a while but 3 just feels smoother....

I tried mine on 1 and it felt like I was riding a BMW  :pot: no power at all

Hi

I have a toertech switch and to be quit honest I played around with it in the beginning, but now only use it on 3. I wheely alot and on 3 it is much better to control than the wild setting. Tried the 1 setting going up steep rocky mountain past (4x4 route) and didnt work at aal, changed back to 3 and everything was fine.
