Thumbs up New ECU fitted today under warranty

Was told by my dealer he was doing 2 bikes for replacement ECU and he was meant to give some feed back from the owners to Suzuki Australia.I have told him its a real improvement on how it was when new.
When i first bought the bike it was so jerky in traffic that my wifes helmet was constantly banging mine. This never normally happens because i am very smooth when carrying a pillion. I fitted a G2 throttle tamer some months ago, which did smooth things out a lot. So now to riding home with a new ECU. I did my best to not be smooth in the problem speeds in traffic, i.e., that 50 to 80 kph range ,were it used to be on off on off ,now there was a nice smooth response, not jerky or snatchy at all.Shutting throttle for slower traffic then opening again , all good .Holding a constant speed is now fine, no need for special care to achieve this.
For the record I am happy with the result. Didn't have a chance for a real blast, but did get a couple of stretches were i could really hit the throttle. Response was crisp and smooth.I loved this bike before and now even happier. Thanks for listening to my complaint Suzuki,and fixing it. Hopefully they will be able to do this for other owners as well .

Is the tamer still fitted?
New ecu + tamer = smooth
New ecu = ?

my guess is tamer wouldn't be necessary with this ecu , and yes it is still fitted , no reason to take it off.

The only reason to take the tamer off is to see if the new ECU is a real improvement or not.

my post may have been lost in translation, the new ecu is a real improvement, I don't have to take the throttle tamer off to see that, but from a purely scientific and totally objective point of view you would take it off and draw graphs and conclusions based on weather temperatures and height above sea level while carefully monitoring fuel quality blah blah blah.
New ECU is a great improvement by my seat of the pants totally unscientific observations . I have no intention in possibly stuffing up my heated grips by trying to remove the throttle tamer.

How do we get this new ECU?

Just go see the dealer?

Is there a re-call on certain build dates?

I'm in Perth too, so any info would be great.

I spoke with the Suzuki dealer I got my bike from here in Norway and I will be getting a new ecu under warranty. No argument no fuss. They knew all about it and were very helpful. They have already fitted one and will let me know as soon as they have the new edu. Now looking forward to a smoother better running bike in the near future

There does not seem to be in Aus. a general we will fix it attitude yet. I asked both suzuki , and my dealer, about it, see my post '' Suzuki is listening'' for more detail.
No re call as such .
Maybe not all bikes fitted with the old ECU ?

It doesn't it is still fast and crisp, it takes out the slow speed traffic jerky on off on off action .
