    Nose diving

    Hello All,

    As some of you may know I am only about a three-week old TTSE owner. So I am still learning things about this machine and so far I love all of it, except on thing.  I didn't know about this until today.

    So today I attempted to pass a car who decided my lane was much more important than hitting a squirrel. I got hard on the brakes and this think took a nose dive so hard I almost lost it.

    I have it set for one up, traction control on, throttle set to normal.

    Is there a way to stiffen this thing up so it does not nose dive so badly?

    You have three suspension modes, Comfort, Normal & Sport. Comfort is the softest suspension and will allow the front end to dive much easier than normal or sport mode. Sport mode being the stiffest suspension. The brakes are very good on this bike, even in normal or sport mode hard breaking will cause some nose dive.

    I thought the Sport/Normal/Comfort was user to control throttle response. Am I mistaken?

    ZebraRanger is correct, I think the forks are a sprung a little soft any hard braking will cause some nose dive.

    Hard front braking on the TTES going into a turn kind of upsets things a bit. This is one place the  K1600 really excels, almost no dive.

    I don't recall nose diving being an issue on the Goldwing or the Concours. Regardless, if I cannot get the front shocks stiffened up a bit I will just be aware of it for next emergency braking.
