I wouldn't say it was dangerous by a long shot. I haven't added any engine tune or exhaust changes I've gone for cosmetics and honestly the throttle is the least of my worries. All this talk of class action lawsuits is depressing. The bikes have to made to certain emission's regulations for worldwide sales and I would imagine that is a tough balancing act.
I'm not disputing the throttle is perfect but taking out some free play and having decent control of my wrist goes a long way to having smooth throttle response. It does get smoother after a 1000miles which also helps.
What he said.
Either there must be very different versions of the GSXS around or some riders just not are "compatible" with the bike.
Yes, the GSXS ECU is somewhat "sharp" programmed from on/off at low speed, but not more than it is easy to handle in my opinion.
I have installed the Rapidbike EVO on mine and have not noticed this "problem" until now when I am testing out how this device works (or not) and therefore I am very alert to any change in fueling.
The Rapidbike EVO device is of obvious reasons not doing anything when TPS is < 5% opening, and I notice that when I am riding it usually is in this range when cruising (and my milage is just as low as before).
I can also see on the Youtune device that the fueling is very lean in most cruise and low TPS range. Which I like a lot as the bike goes like a rocket when the throttle is at WOT (testing wheelies and acceleration).
The Rapidbike EVO sets the rev limiter 1000rpm higher (12.500) which is a great plus (for me).
And it adjust the fueling when revving the engine/TPS > 5%.
I cannot say that it goes any better than before as I thought the bike went OK before installing the device.
And I find the engine(ECU) fueling in regards to my throttle inputs satisfactory.
I rather have an engine that reacts instantly and "crisp" at very gentle inputs as opposed to "sluggish" and with delayed (soft) reaction to throttle inputs.
But that's just me I guess.
That said, I will not say no to a new ECU if there really is a Suzuki recall in the near future. As long as it not means less HP and a "sedate" bike.
