Hi.

Love how this bike handles, nice change of direction, good front end feel and I can play with the rear wheel, spinning it to change the trajectory (awesome fun at Stoner corner and the last long left that leads on to the straight on Victoria). Just one question, the gears in the default setting seems to be a bit tight, very short range between them if you know what I mean, but maybe it's correct, never riden the bike in real life (obviously) so I can't compare. I also noticed that if I change the front tire to SC2 (I think it was that one, the second option), the front end tucks very easily. No such problem with the SC1 (default tire).   

Thanks for your awesome work. Will you guys be upgrading the full WSBK set to "18", or maybe even jump to 2019? 

Cheers,

Default gears are too short because my tests are with tiny tracks, so yep it is better change it for normal tracks. SC2 are the harder compound with less grip, but more life compared to SC1 (soft compound).

The 2018 set I think was a "bad idea", because in real life the bikes were the same of the 2017, just with some little changes in the rules (i.e. "rpm penalty" to kawasaki). Probably this bike will be changed in the 2019 version with the panigale V4 R.

For a full set never say never.  ;)

I know SC2 is harder, but for me it's too hard, or it's too difficult to get heat into them, don't know which one. I lose the front at medium lean angles, just by adding a little throttle input (default tire pressure).

Keeping my fingers crossed for a full set  ;)

Tested now the SC2, both front and rear at Victoria for 8 laps, last one not counted for a crash (touched the grass with the rear tire in the final corner, for this reason there is a 144° on the front)

Default setup and final ratio 18\37 and I never lose the front, maybe you tried these tires with a too low track temp.

Hmm, ok. I ran on default track settings. Have to try again I guess. Thanks for looking into it.
