So why are some snatchy and some not ???
My Triton blue GSXS1000F build date 09/15 when purchased was impossible to ride at a constant speed as the throttle was way too sensitive causing the speed to increase and decrease when any pebbles or bumps on the road were hit from the minute i rode it out the door from new, that was much improved with a throttle tamer, this also helped with the on/off fuel cut that can occur on some of our bikes.
At a constant low speed my bike had the rough surging problem some of our bikes have, it was not too bad but enough to be annoying when slowing cruising around town, this was helped slightly with the TPS set by the dealer under waranty but was fixed with an 02 eliminator stopping the bike running lean as it goes into closed loop mode at constant speed.
This though causes the bike to run rich so next a power commander with an auto tuner has smoothed the bike out somewhat and has the fuel running at a perfect 13.3/1 right across the rev range but even with all this the throttle can still be very responsive at times.
So why am i posting the obvious here, well a couple of weeks ago a friend brought the exact same bike from the same dealer brand new in the crate with an 11/15 build date so only two months after mine and a couple of days ago he asked me to take his 900km old bike for a ride as he has read and heard so much of the snatchy throttle and he could not feel any problems with his.
Guess what, from the first release of the clutch his bike felt so much better than mine even with all my additions and he agreed as he rode mine, the throttle was so controllable and smooth, the low constant speed surging did not exist and i could not even feel the fuel cut kicking back in after releasing the throttle, the throttle had to be twisted to increase speed just like it should like my previous bikes all were.
So why are they like this, what is the tolerance that must be so fine that distinguishes each bike, same model, same ECU so same fuel map and timing and the TPS set, i'm lost.
