End of constant throttle woes
It's been a while since I've posted, so it's time for an update.
Constant throttle and irratic fuelling plague my early ownership of my bike, to the point of my wanting to off load it as quick as I could. My local dealership support was weak and I genuinely felt total dejection. Speaking with Suzuki GB yielded no results worth divulging. So what did I do?
I nagged at Suzuki to change the ECM, under protest they did but the problems persisted.
Thanks to the Primary TPS thread on this group I directed the dealership to resolve that next. Clearly refuting this fix, they recruited Suzuki GBs tech wizard to review the bike. Guess what....yep the TPS was out of alignment and set low.
First ride post fix proved at 95% fix, so I'm once again a happy boy.
So what next. We'll........
If decat' dthe bike and gone for a full yoshimura system, stainless headers into a black metal magic R11. I've had a bmc race air filter installed together with a Rapid Bike Evo tuner with a quick shifter.
The dealer kindly did a pre mod and post mod dyno run and the results are interesting.
Pre 143.7 rwbhp and 76 ft lb of torque, (baffles in)
Post 151.9 rwbhp and 80 ft lb of torque. (Baffles in)
Whilst this is all encouraging, it does include any tuning on the rapid bike as its using the stock RB map and set to auto tuning. I've got to run it for a couple hundred miles and take it back for a third dyno run.
Parking that, the bike has seen a 7 rwbhp, dropped at least 10kg in weight, now has a throaty growl but the best thing...that quick shifter, wow, just wow. By God does the bike shift now!
You have to try this, no way am I parting with this thing now, I just love it!
