I'm feeling a bit dizzy after reading an on line bike magazine advice page. An owner was enquiring about switching to a different tyre brand on his bike.

He was told that on no account should he consider it without first re-calibrating his TC coded algorithms in the IMU.

Wow! All the different tyres, brands and sizes that I've changed through the years without ever re-calibrating an algorithm! In fact I don't even know where my bikes' algorithms are.  :-[

Should I give up biking? - Or reading?

Reading.  Definitely reading.

my 1970 Suzuki T500.

Never knew: Nice!  :thumleft:
Was that the one perhaps in some clothing shop's window in Menlyn last year?

No, mine will dirty the clothing. :biggrin: :biggrin: I am in Stellenbosch.

I have the same problem on my 1970 Suzuki T500.

No algorithm seems to be able to find a suitable period tyre. :eek7:
My SR500 has not seen a battery in years, how do I work this Algorithm thing? Do I need to buy a battery before I can find out what tyre is wrong for it? I put on what fits on the rim and does not catch the swingarm! :laughing4: :peepwall:

The SR's have an indicator to show when the right tyre is fitted. After fitting the tyre, put the bike in neutral and a green light will come on on the dash if the tyre is correct. :thumleft:

I had one too, tires were round and went round and round!
I am doing it today, maybe there is no tomorrow

You know when you fit a smaller dia. rear tyre to a bike of which the speedo reads off the gearbox, you get a false reading?

Well, on your electronic TC the computer knows your wheel diameter is between X and Y. Change that and the computer will receive the wrong info.

According to my logic anyway.

I think you are correct. I have a similar issue with my car. I am only supposed to use one specific type and size of tyre, because  of possible issues with traction and stability control.   When I asked about the the difference in diameter between new and worn tyres, or over-and under inflated tyres, they could not give me an answer. 
Why do things that only happen to stupid people always happen to me?

Your tyres should wear evenly and you should make sure the pressures are equal every day. :deal:
