So I guess this would be a good place to post this. I have 6500 miles on my cafe and did not have a "complaint" with the throttle action. But I was coming off of a ZX10R monster that had just enough power (to much
) now that bike I would say was twitchy on the throttle. My wife described it (the few times she rode it) as a bull coming out of a pen at a rodeo leaving a traffic light
I guess I just was used to it. But heres the point. I just started down another rabbit hole, and bought the Woolich Racing Tune software for my RS. I was already familiar with it as I had it on my Ninja. Plus I never pay anyone to work on my bikes if the tools are available to me. So the first mod I did was turn off my PAIR system. Turn off the EGO (I installed a Zeitronix one for fuel mapping) and turned off Fuel shut off (which is what I am assuming Ivan is doing) and rode the bike through my favorite twisties.
I do love this part about tuning a bike the test rides
Conclusion? I have to say it smoothed out the throttle response IMMENSELY. I was surprised. The way I would describe it is the difference between a carburated bike and a fuel injected bike. I know that sounds funny, but I can always feel the difference between the 2. That is unless the bike is real heavy, say like a Harley or Goldwing. Weight smooths out the off on digital switching. Thats why cars get away with it much easier. Yeah some are worse than others but thats what FI is. It does not have the natural flow of fuel to the need or demand of the engine. Engineers do there best to predict response but usually never as good as good old fashion fuel flow physics. So while I still stand by my original statement that I did not experience a problem with Mona in stock form. I wont be turning on fuel shut off anytime soon. But now comes the fun part, more test rides to log data. And when I get it just right I will add the quick shifter. THATS what is at the bottom of the rabbit hole
