Centrifugal versus centripital, as explained on the answer bag. Centrifugal force is a perceived force, not an actual force. It can only be viewed from the vantage point of the spinning object. For example, when turning in a car, the object in the seat next to us flies outward. We call that centrifugal force. Remember the law of intertia: all objects stay at rest or continue in a straight line unless acted on by an outside force. The object that flies outward is trying to continue in a straight line (the direction the car was headed before you started turning). There is just not enough friction on the seat next to you to keep the object constrained to the turn until it hits the door. If you add the vectors of movement on the turning car, it is found that the car is accelerating towards the center of the turn, not away from the center. This inward acceleration is called centripital force. That feeling of being "pushed out" when turning in a car is nothing more than resistance to the centripital force constraining the car.

Looking back, I'll bet I never did have a problem with my bank angle sensor.  I'm thinking all along it was my power commander.  However, since it's out, I'll leave it out.

I don't think I'd put in any other type of switch.  If I go down, either I will shut the bike off or the corner worker will within a few seconds.

ahhahaha... i don't think anyone's going to trust you anymore...  :)

Well shit man.  I dunno, I'm having problems with my Bank Angle sensor right now.  I don't know where I'm gunna mount this thing.  I've got it strapped to the right side-back side of my fairing stay, and it keeps vibrating loose and falling down, and killing my engine.  I might just have to slice it.  But who knows, I'll look at it more tomorrow

i diabled mine without issue.  I know Jeff found out his was an issue with his pciii, but i know of two people that had their engines cut because of the sensor.  Both spun up the rear wheel and when the bike snapped back straight up (near hi side) their sensor took enough of a jolt to have is shut the bike off......it was a big debate over removing it and keeping it.... i prefer to remove it...plus it saved 6oz.   :P

For mounting it, I took a small flat metal bar, zip tied the BAS to the bar and zip tied the bar to the back of the fairing stay.  It was solid and a good location...

Whats the latest on this topic? Are more people removing them than keeping them?
I just bought a road bike and for some reason, the bankangle sensor has been cut off and the wires twisted together. I've never had a problem on my race bike, even with very near hi-sides, the engine has just kept going.
If I want to reconnect it, which I think is safer, the problem will be, the missing conector. Are these available to buy?

I race with mine on with no problems...

Put it back on.  They're just wires, cut 'em and buy solder-on bullet connectors.

Yeah, I'm going to reconnect it but it would be nice to use the honda type connectors.

I have had mine removed for two full seasons.   On two different bikes with a total of five crashes, I haven't had a problem yet.  On every crash the bike has killed on its own.   We have had Jeff's problem with the PC3 on a hand full of bikes, but we have also had the tip over switch problem on two different bikes, at Blackhawk Farms.  So I am not real worried about not having it.  Just my two cents.   ;D

as said earlier not to do this to a street bike, it is also recommended for stunt bikes because when holding a high enough wheelie it can cut the bike off
