I was able to get some information regarding 2D suspension sensors, and what the benefits are. This is exactly what I received from 2D. Please note the last sentence. BMW's Race Calibration Kit will offer more possibilities. Race bikes/teams using the Kit with the sensor(s) may have a different experience.
My email to 2D
I am a BMW HP4 owner who is interested in getting a rear shock sensor. Can you tell me what the added benefit is? Does it provide more data? Is it more accurate? What does the motorcycle do with this data that is different than what it receives from the stock sensor? What options/features do I gain by adding this sensor?
Given the opportunity, can you answer the same questions for the front sensor? I appreciate your assistance.
Response from 2D
as a HP4 owner there is no benefit for you fitting the rear shock sensor as the bike is already equipped with the OEM part. In fact changing to any other than standard part is not recommended as this will not work for the DDC unit. This 2D option is for S1000RR owners only to get the possibility to record suspension data as well.
However, front sensor is different. When fitted DDC will give you the possibility to adjust compression and rebound separately. In combination with BMW Race calibration kit you will get even more possibilities to adjust your suspension.
