It would have been if you were will to take responsibility for your own learning rather than waiting for people to spoon-feed you answers to a question that has been asked and answered many times.


This type of reply is what's wrong with today's world.

Yes there are a ton of conversations about the throttle abruptness.

Basic solutions (or improvements) in a nutshell:

  • Adjust (reduce/eliminate) throttle cable free play.
  • Increase idle RPM a touch.
  • Throttle tamer grip.
  • Re-flash the ECU (2 Wheel Dyno Works, or Ivan’s are the main ones).
  • 16 tooth sprocket for a bit taller ratio that softens the “hit” of the engine

The re-flash is going to be the most effective, but also most expensive.

There is also the booster plug which I think was one of the original fixes for this problem, I believe most people had an improvement. I bought my bike used and the previous owner had a booster plug on it, and it rode fine, I removed it after I got it flashed and I find the bike runs pretty much the same with the flash and booster plug. It seems the snatchiness can vary from bike to bike though. I believe I saw a post a couple of days ago someone in europe was selling theirs because they just got a flash and didn't need it any more.

These are great bunch who are pleased to help each other out, unfortunately the terse reply you initially got is not representative of the general membership. Guess he was having a bad day...  :001:

Yeah, bad day, so sorry about that.

While I've contributed nothing to the throttle snatch conversation (not a problem for me), I know many here have shared what they know in considerable detail. I thought it disrespectful to those members to believe it wasn't worthwhile to do a search.

Still, my apologies.

:745: haha ok!

Revisiting threads like these I believe actually helps the forum because if you read m_mcdonnell post, he has condensed about 5 threads and numerous posts into one paragraph. In the future when someone searches and pulls up this thread all the info from past discussions is nicely summarized and easy to follow.

Funny how we perceive things differently.  I thought the post to do a search was fine, hey a new member maybe they are not aware of search feature.  Then the reply thanks Pal, very helpful I assumed was just that a thank you.

Reading on it seems the first post was taken as an insult like “ Hey stupid look it up yourself, been there done that”.  And the reply was just sarcasm like “ Oh you are soooo smart and very helpful (jerk)”.

Guess I just kind of assume we are all here to support each other or maybe just loosing my sensitivity in my old age.
