Support / Re: Assigning one button for both brakes?

If it's the same as MX Bikes you can apparently do this manually by editing the controls text file, I've never tried it though, if you do let us know if it works please.

I'll be up to watch at least the start live but will have it recorded so I can continue from where I crashed out at in the morning  ;)

Also the Eurosport Superpole show was a bit broken up eh  :o

Would I be right in thinking that this is not something that real rider would have on his dash?

For the kill switch maybe think about the jet ski kind of thing. A short cord and peg from wrist to a sprung switch, remove your hand from the grip and it dies.

I have a T500 and turn it down for anything but a demo of the FFB, it's a real work out on full but nothing a grown man couldn't overpower.

Looking sweet btw  :D

Have a blast on the 500GP round it, your SV will seem a breeze afterwards ;)

And Teeds, it'll be my second trackday (did one on my Daytona back in august at Folmebray) but it'll be my on this bike. Im north of Norwich so Snetterton is my closest track by far :)

So you'll be bashing the GPB Snetty track then?  ;)  It's an old version but some of the corners are still relevant.

Local track eh.
Snetterton is only 40 minutes away for me and I'm going there in April for my first day on the SV :D

Aye, used to live a short push bike ride from the track but now am probably about the same as you away in a car from the Thetford direction. Is this your 1st track day as well  your 1st go on this bike then matty?

@Teeds. What you think of Snetterton 300? Had my first trip to the 300 circuit in 2014 (I had been to the original hundreds of times)
I love the spectator banking at Agostinins you can see nearlly all of the circuit

It's my local track and yea I loved every minute of thrashing the bits off my bikes around it. Was so glad to have done hundreds of virtual laps in a car before going, was a car sim but was still great to know the track layout in detail. In hindsight it would probably have been better with the 20 min sessions we did to have gone on the 200 track - more laps and less learning needed.
Used to hang around this track a long time ago and did some car park marshalling for the Race of Aces now and then, crazy days!  :-X  Never got to ride or drive on the original though, I wonder if the Nortons would have done so well with this many more turns in the mix?  ;)

So Harry, have you ridden the 200 version and if so do you prefer it to the original? Also how do you rate the 300 in comparison?

General Discussion / Re: Joysticks with square output

I know someone that could use what you describe then Max, sounds good. I've just loaded up that xbcd v1.07 on win7 x64 with no problems but it doesn't seem to pick up my ps3 controller I use with the SCP driver package, anyone know if it works with Motion Joy? Maybe it only works with actual Xbox controllers?

I have played with some of the joysticks in these controllers and I would be careful with the filing option. If you look at the image below you have the blue circle representing your current movement with the red square being what you're really after. The joystick I played with (ps3) seemed to jam up at the extremes so I figured that the restrictive circle was due to physical constraints of the joystick mechanism. If anyone is considering this before you attack your controller with a file make sure the joystick is happy with the travel you're after.
Also if you reduce the saturation via software tweaks you'll get movement detected only in the black square which will reduce your throw considerably but will achieve a square detection zone. No right or wrong here but something to be considered with a control that already has little throw, looks like about a 25-30% reduction on TDC and SDC.

You could probably just stick a load cell where a classical (non radial) lever pushes the cylinder, no ?

Yea if there's enough room for the initial travel, spring and sensor etc. Also maybe the plunger could be extended to protrude beyond the banjo bolt hole, mounting the sensor where the banjo would normally sit. I need to have a rummage in my garage see if I have a front brake lying around to play with.

Teeds that switch on the master cylinder(universal Harley I custom built them 25 years) its just the brake switch and no use. its digital not analog.

Umm yea thanks for that DD  ::)  lmao   ;)

If you're not expecting any movement from a fluid based system once it's engaged then it seems bit overly complicated using hydraulics? I was thinking for simplicity and compactness couldn't you rig up a mechanical equivalent using a load cell and some rubber actually within the fluid reservoir? I was thinking you could drill and insert a pivot in the ally reservoir and have a lever going from the push rod to a load cell/rubber/spring assembly on the other end. Would need to be the same as pictured below and not the remote reservoir type but should be as easy as rigging up a complete system if not easier, neat and compact too and no fluids. Hmm...  :)

For the money they look very good. Are you thinking of using a pressure sensor for the clutch?
