There's a metric ton of variables for me with the TC. The stuff on the latest gen KTM 4T enduros, and what many others are running.....no issue as its not overly intrusive. If it hinders you from going faster, or navigating something......then that's a problem. Srs question.....do you think your S1000 would be rideable without any form of TC? I can't help but think with 165hp, it's either lifting the front, or spinning the rear almost non-stop.
