    Huh. I"ve never calibrated the MGTC system, either when the bike was new or when I switched over to the Conti RA3s. It seems to work just fine, activates when I expect depending upon whether I have level 1 or 2 selected, etc. ??

    Well, for all I know, you may not need to re-initialize the MGTC on the later models, but for my V7II, the manual states that it must be done after any tire change.

    The V7III manual says to reinitialize the TC after any tire change as well. It makes sense, the technology does complicated math based on wheel revolutions.

    I imagine that if you don't reinit, it'll *mostly* work, but there's really no way for you to tell for sure if it isn't quite working as it should.

    Ive read posts that complain of overly touchy TC, for example activation in corners. I suspect that at least some of this misbehavior is due to the need for re-calibrating the TC system as indicated in the user manual.

    nobody that I remember has complained after putting it in #1trction control. I just installed the second replacement tire on my III and never thought about resetting anything.

    I was so happy with them on the V7 that when the old EV needed a front tire last week i stuck one on the front. It's A 100 instead of a 110 .but I went out and did 180 twisty miles and am very impressed so far. It's like the bike lost 100 LBS.

    Just came across this video of a v7 race bike. It's in italian and he mentions tires around the 2 min mark. Can anyone translate to identify tires used?

    Hi Jeff, I have V7II Racer and find the sport demon to be rather unreliable. I am looking at the BT45s. Any advice welcomed here in Hobart.
