Anyone tried the Bazzaz Z-F1 TC

I'm considering purchasing the Bazzaz Traction control unit and also adding the Z-AFM (Air Fuel Mapping) module. Has anyone used these products? If so , worth it? This is for an 09 R6 strictly track bike. I was considering this system instead of the Power commander V.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Thanks

Re: Anyone tried the Bazzaz Z-F1 TC

I have it on my bike. The traction control is very hard to set up correctly. It's easy to leave in the default settings and use it as a fail safe, but to set it up properly is pretty damn hard. For this reason I would recommend the ZFI-QS and ZAFM. Their quickshifter is the smoothest i've used.

From talking to Bazzaz it was my understanding that when you get the TC module it includes both the Quick shift and Fuel management? Maybe I need to call them again.

You are correct, Corey is just saying that the TC is hard to set up properly you would be fine going with the QS model which is the same just less the TC.

+1 to the above

zfi=fuel controller
zfi-qs=fuel controller and quickshifter
zfi-tc=fuel controller, quickshifter, and traction control.

Unless you have a race team to back you up or can afford to ride the bike on the limits to just set up the traction control then don't expect to use it as it's designed. It's really made for the pro's or very competitive racers. The quickshifter model everyone can use and it's easy to set up and works very well.

I have Bazzaz Tc on both my R6 ....I do not find it very difficult to set up and for a medium rider is a great back up on used slippery tires!

Re: Anyone tried the Bazzaz Z-F1 TC

for a backup, but to set up properly the way it's designed takes riding on the limit and normally a backup bike or two as you will go down trying to set it up. If you want it as a backup then leave it on stock settings, but that's not what traction control is for. It's for as motogp uses it, so you can be skipping the tire all over as you're coming out of a corner and using every last inch of the pavement. To set it up to help in those situations (as it's designed) requires riding/testing in that environment and normally a few crashes. One of our sponsored guys went down twice setting it up, but now that it's set up it's 100% badass for him.

A few local guys here have it come on for htem and then state they are using it, but their settings are so sensitive there is no reason it should come on, but it gives them bragging rights.

For most save your money imo...It's a great unit for the competitive racer, but for others it's going to be a spendy fail safe and nothing more. Their quickshifter though is....the best i've seen so far!

Re: Anyone tried the Bazzaz Z-F1 TC

I have both the TC/QS/ZFI unit and the QZ/ZFI unit and the I ran faster lap times w/o the TC on.

One day I'll find someone to tune it for me, but I'm also used to having the rear slide on me here and there.

I know you're new here, but please look at the date.
