Mode "B"

I must admit that slipping into 'A' mode definitely transforms the machine into a wild beast.

Helps that it has been flashed, I guess.

Feels like an electric bike all of a sudden.  Crack the throttle and as Mario would say, "let's a go!"

Can be very exhilarating for an old(er) geezer like me and I must admit I do like the way I can just pull away from my HD riding buddies in a blink.  I only do it to get away from that infernal racket that they make. 🤣

I'll take it out of A mode in the winter when I'm wearing bulky gloves. Catch that throttle by accident in a parking lot maneuver and you'll do the same. In snow as well, not that I intentionally ride in snow, but it happens. Otherwise A mode it is.

I ride in STD mode.  A mode is nice but just too jerky at small throttle openings.  Usually set it one way and don't bother changing it until something bugs me and then I'll try something else.

A mode seems to work better at higher rpms with a little momentum to reduce throttle jerkiness. Like running a fun road in 3rd at 60 or 70 mph.

I gave in to the peer pressure 😁 and switched to A mode ( or Mode 1 on the Niken ) and it was more fun, even though I had a couple of jerky throttle applications. I think having the bike in B ( Mode 2 on the Niken ) for the first 2500 miles allowed me to get more comfortable without the jerky throttle response distraction. I will probably switch back to B for rain and passenger carrying etc.

I ride A mode almost 100% of the time. I did have my bike flashed by 2WDynoworks in Seattle, so I think my A mode is a bit different than stock right now. If I remember correctly, they smoothed out the A mode a bit, but it still is a bit of a hooligan when I get on the throttle......

I use B Mode when it's raining...

And since I almost never ride when it rains...

It might be controversial, but I never really tried A Mode!

I ride STD Mode all the time and that's enough for me so far.
