G'Day from Brisvegas Aussie land

G'day to fellow GSX-S owners from around the planet. This forum is cool I like it, great to get sensible real feedback from other owners of a newly released model!
I purchased my Candy Red/Black early August here in my hometown Brisbane.
Currently own 5 Suzuki's, 3 Honda's & a Husky.

But for all those complaining about the "Snatchy Throttle" mine was the same at first. If it's any HELP I adjusted the throttle cable up heaps so as to have very minimum freeplay & BOOM straight away noticed huge difference, throttle much smoother around town & on high speed bumpy country roads! Snatchy abrupt throttle GONE!. It was like riding a completely different bike, a much more pleasurable ride.

Cheers Zac.

Welcome Zac, thats the first job I did on my bike when I got it home, mine didn`t have much play to start with, my bike rode lots better than the demo bike even when I picked it up. I have found though it is a bit snatchy in 2nd coming off a closed throttle, but nothing I cant live with.

Thanks Redman!

I see your numberplate is GSX55 cool, mine is GSX51.

G'day Sandyman, Glad to hear yours is sorted to. You would think that dealers would have their demos better set up before allowing customers to ride them only to find a negative, when such an easy adjustment fixes the problem.

I like your number plate Zac , ours in the Uk are so ugly & the size of a bill board.

Ahh so you were the one who took that plate Zac ... Yeh, I thought I'd do something special... Seems like we'll have fairly similar bikes then haha!

Sandyman your plates sound huge in the UK? Can the plate fit on a tail tidy then? I've got a tail tidy on order for mine.

Thanks Carpmanu. Maybe a remap tune when available will be the final solution for any future throttle probs?

I put some video on YouTube demonstrating my snatchy throttle. I am not the best rider around by far but at times you can hear it over the bumps.

Just fitted a tail tidy on mine, plate does fit but looks big, lots of people fit small plates but there illegal here. I used to run with a small plate on some of my other bikes but got fed up being pulled by the feds all the time. it just gives them an excuse to look for other stuff like race pipes, dark visors.
