Options: Quick shifter + Pit Limiter
Quick shift input
Quick shift technology is a fundamental part of the traction control system. Most systems on the market are able to cut the coils. But what is missing from these is the ability to re-apply the power after the shift in a progressive way. This kind of control is normally only found on professional superbike electronics but we have built this into the Nemesis-TCS system.
Primarily the user is able to choose a cut time as with any other system, but after the cut the user can choose to retard the ignition by a programmable amount and then ramp back the retard over a programmable period until full power is restored.
Why is this necessary?
Quick shifters work by reducing the engine power sufficiently so all of the backlash in the transmission is reversed, this short period when the engine is not driving the back wheels takes the pressure of the gearbox internals and permits the shift.
But when the power comes back on the engine very rapidly takes up this backlash in the forward direction, the revs rise and are suddenly halted when all backlash is taken up. This abrupt shock is carried through to the back wheel via the chain and can initiate a slide.
By making a power reduction using ignition retard after the shift this initial shock is reduced and power is re-applied in a more gradual and controlled way. Although the slide would be caught by the TCS anyway it makes no sense create unnecessary work or correction, when all you really want is a smooth and controlled acceleration out of the corner.
Do I have to use the ignition retard?
No, you can choose any of the following:
What quick shifter hardware can I use?
The system is triggered by the input signal being pulled to ground, so any switch type system is able to do this including the Nemesis Quickshift-Sensor. For users who wish to use alternative powered systems we have provided a 12v feed on the 3-way shifter connector.
Nemesis Pit Limiter Option
Pit speed limiter
The pit speed limiter can be activated by shorting together the
2 wires of the connector called PIT on the chassis wiring loom supplied in your
kit. Any type of ‘normally open’ switch can be used.
The Pit limiter option is active whenever the bike front speed is between 30 and 100km/h. The user must push and hold the Pit limiter switch for the system to remain active.
When the Pit limiter is active all blue LEDs are active on the TC-Pod for the duration that the button is held down. If the button is held down for longer than 20 seconds it is presumed that the input or switch is damaged and a diagnostic message will appear on the Pod display.
