Hello from Manchester, england!

Hey everyone, I've recently bought a GSXS 1000 abs in red and black, absolutely love the bike, just a couple of issues which I see other people are having as well with the very snatchey throttle! Only picked the bike up on Monday so I'm going to get into contact with the shop I got it from in St. Helens, I see some people have said that a pcv fixes it, stupid question what is a pcv? Also a reflash of the ecu? Any help much appreciated!
All the best, Michael!

Hey everyone! Thanks makes more sense now haha!

My bikes only got 150 miles on the clock I picked it up as a brand new bike on Monday m, noticed it was very snatchy at lower speeds mainly on the initial turn of the throttle straight away, I've read the reviews about it, so I knew what I was getting involved with, going to ring Suzuki over the weekend make them aware see what they say and/or do, failing that I'll get the ecu re flashed but I have no clue as to how to go about it all, woolich I've been reading a lot about? Any one have any ideas how I would go about getting the ecu reflashed?

You should have some, not a lot, but a little doesn't hurt. Otherwise you're stretching the cable(s) at full throttle and under hard braking if you have a good grip on it.

It's really all rider preference. I like a bit of slop so I have extra room in turns or if I grab the throttle quickly and my hand isn't positioned normal.

Hi Michael,
For starters, Welcome to the GSXS Forum and the ever growing band of R & BLK Riders here,

With the snatch, seeing that you have read the previous posts, just confirm first that the Primary Throttle Position Sensor has been ACCURATELY set.
Your Dealer can hook up the diagnostic software tool and verify that and should not charge you as it takes a minute and requires no panels to be removed as the socket is under the rear seat and they should be well aware of any adjustment needed and claim for that as a warranty claim on Suzuki UK who are well aware of the issue. Hopefully your bike is post May 2016 build and so has the ECU second generation software loaded.

Rob.

Thank you Rob, I'll give them a call today see if I can take the bike down on Monday to get it checked and see what they find, is there anyway I can see when the bike was built or is that something only the dealer will have access to?

Michael.
