RCK3 - launch control

I've got the RCK3 and WSBK map now for my 2015 race bike but am wondering if anyone has some inputs they can share with me specifically for the quickshifter time reduction and launch control settings.

I'm planning to run superstock this year so will be on Pirelli SC tires if that helps.

Tried google search for some tips but given this is so specific I think a forum post might be more fruitful.

Thanks in advance for any tips and suggestions of how to get the most out of the bike.

(PS - If it helps any, stock launch control seems to bog the bike down for the first 20 meters then its off... with the row behind me now in front of me! )

You still have to feather the clutch lever out precisely enough, otherwise......you get the result you're experiencing. The best thing about launch control is the ability for consistency. I never really got along with it, as it is setup stock from the factory.

Since you have the ability to change it's parameters...
PM @kruizen he raced a 15 the last 2 years, and found a setting for launch control that he preferred, last year, but I don't recall the specifics.

I have had better success using 2nd gear, 8000 RPM if I remember correctly.

I am -1 tooth up front though.

I finally started playing more with the LC this year.

Does anyone know if it's possible to get the LC to work in all four modes instead of just Slick like a stock bike? Have the RCK3 and unlock.

It works in user mode as well stock.

For my experience, I got the WSBK alpha map installed. Made a huge difference. Doesn't bog down at all now, goes off the line nicely.

To get launch control in all 4 modes you need the race ECU code. I've got it but honestly only ride in the slick mode anyway. You can fiddle with all of it using RCK but since I got the map installed no need. I only change it for gearing and tire radius.
