Smoothing out nicely!

Hi guys, i think this has been mentioned on here already, but i thought id share my snatchy and abrupt throttle disappearance. Like many of you have done already, i adjusted the free play out a few hundred milds ago. I am coming up for 800 miles now, my rides are always pretty spirited and i like to give the engine a good thrashing. The only mods so far are front and rear fender extenders. Yesterday i cleaned, lubed and re adjusted the chain ready for a run out today.. i have to report that the jerkyness is almost non existant and shes freeing up lovely. I was ready to buy a pc5, but il now wait for a few hundred miles and see if the improvement continues naturally!

Right around 3,000 miles, the engine will feel as if it suddenly gained 50 extra horsepower. I see no need to rush out and buy a Power Commander. Waste of money. But, I do know it's fun to buy stuff for the bike....and I can certainly admit to "Wasting" 10s of thousands of dollars on useless items over the years.

Is it really useless? I don't think buying cool stuff for our number 1 hobby is useless......It's fun

I'm having images go through my head of what that rear fender extender might look like and it's not pretty.

I don't see how a fuelling issue will sort itself naturally, but whatever works for you. If you don't spend a lot of time on/off the throttle at low speeds, you won't be noticing the issue, so I guess that's where you are. I, however, commute daily in peak hour traffic, and the PC5 made a marked difference. If I spent most of my time in the twisties or otherwise at highway speeds, I probably wouldn't have bothered either.

I think you absolutely correct, it depends where you riding. I don't do much traffic riding, but if I did, I think that PCV would probably have been more needed. When I do ride in traffic, I tend to use the clutch quite a bit more than what I would consider normal to often manage the jerkiness, and always wonder to what extent am I wearing the clutch out quicker. Because I tend to do more higher speeds runs, the issue is not really a problem or not a problem at all. But having said that, what I realized is that I actually also adjusted my riding to allow for the jerkiness. So when I going thru bends, I am not smoothly and continually rolling onto the speed thru the bend in the same manner as I would normally have done because of not wanting to risk unsettling the bike in the bend with the jerky throttle. I think I tend to get way with it because I tend to ride more squaring-off lines. But I do tend to be a little more careful thru long bends where one cannot just square-off the corner. And put some unevenness in the road, and I am even more careful with the throttle. But I still manage to ride the bends very fast and its not affecting the quality of my ride so it is an issue at all. So, do I really need PCV - probably No. The question however that I have now started to ask myself is; if the throttle was smoother could I be even faster thru the bends and have an even better ride. And if the answer is yes, well then PCV would be a worthwhile investment.

Yeah you are probably right, but i do commute to work most days in low speed traffic, its only 7 mins away so probably not on it long enough to notice.
