DVT wheelie control

Does anyone know, either intentially or by accident, if the wheelie control is active from a stop?

If you for what ever reason launched too hard from a standstill will it interven and keep the front end down?

Yes... it's always active. At higher levels you will NOT be able to get the front wheel up without an act of God. If you've never run with it low or off then I'd hazard to guess that even though you think you take off easily- in all likelihood if you shut off DWC then rode for a bit you'd realize you were taking off hard enough to wheelie every time.

At least... that's what I found out.

I would actually. But there's this pesky snow and ice that has a tendency to muck things all up here in metro Detroit.

That's interesting that it's that active even from a stop.
I've read that you can feel the WC intervening even at the lowest setting at times.

Might be fun on those nights I'm out being a little "spirited" with my Sportbike friends at a few popular drag spots around town.

My very unscientific learnings: I don't 'purposely' wheelie (clutch up) so all mine are just under power taking off or applying power after a turn. If you shut WC off then it doesn't intervene at all as far as I could tell (I was well on my way to sitting on the pavement once when I'd forgotten I'd shut it off... I don't shut it all the way off anymore). At level 1 it does intervene but you can still get quite a bit of air under the front tire just from power (no need to clutch up). At level 2 the front comes maybe 2" up in first under power, and second gear stays planted.

Each of the riding modes can be customized to use any of the (8 I think) DWC settings... or have DWC shut completely off. If you go into the riding mode setup screens you'll be able to adjust the settings for any of the modes (on my S it's very easy).

Thanks. 1 (or lowest) is off, right?

I don't purposely wheelie either. I mean I can, and have. But I really don't get a great rush from doing it.
Interesting to know that you could launch pretty hard and it won't come up on you.
Not a "launch control", but could help you crank it pretty hard off the line if you felt the need I guess.

It doesn't really make you faster I think - it seems to work by reducing throttle input so you don't put full power down. As you move to higher DWC and DTC levels the bike gets more and more lethargic.

My sweet spot in sport is DWC2 (last setting before the yellow 'offroad' indicator lights up). It does wheelie a bit if you go wot in 1st but not much. In all the other modes I use DWC3... keeps things locked down pretty well.

One experiment I've never done is dump clutch at wot... I've never tried to 'overpower' the wc... not sure if it's possible. Hard launch I have done and dwc seemed to handle it well - but I don't have the balls to just dump and see what happens.
