Hi all

Hello everyone, new owner here, bought my Gsxs 1000f back in march this year having traded in my trusty
Gsx 1250fa after 7 years ownership and 40000 kms trouble free biking. Enjoying the new bike, especially the weight
reduction. Ive done a few mods already tail tidy, sliders, bar risers 20mm (57 year old back and shoulders) adjustable levers. I was hoping the snatchy throttle issue would have been less of a problem on a 2019 bike but it's definitely there, not sure what to do about it yet, I'll look into it later. Bike broken in nicely, covered 3000 km so far
cheers
Neil.

Welcome to the party!

This place has a ton of helpful and smart riders.

As far as the snatchy throttle I feel like the best starting points are adjusting the throttle play and checking the throttle position sensor. (TPS) There are miles of threads about the issue and I think we all experience it differently. The biggest change for me was getting the Fuel Cut on Decel removed, it gets rid of the hard snapping when you are cruising with the throttle barely open and end up cutting the fuel for a second and the whole bike lurches a bit.

Hi Neil, I'd recommend adjusting ALL of the play out of the throttle cable (just make sure the throttle stays at an idle when you turn the bars full stop both directions). I did that and my bike is easier to control at light throttle operation.

Hey Neil (Yamato), good to have you on here. I was wondering what someone coming off the Grande Bandito would think of the GSX-S1000 and you summed it up nicely (big weight difference.) Light is Right! (and more fun)


Hopefully you can get your throttle issues sorted out. Already good (great!) advice above to get you on your way. Once you get that sorted, you'll want a better rear shock sooner rather than later. Kind of the bike's Achilles heel. The good news is that ANY aftermarket shock will be miles better than the stock unit, so you don't have to spend a fortune to improve things. Pics of your bike? Must have pics!

Welcome! I've owned 2 Bandit 1250s. Great bikes, but I love the lightness of this bike comparably.

The big Bandits appeal to me with their 'old school' big block motors with low end torque, but I love a lighter bike as it is just more fun...everywhere. Good to hear you feel the same way since you've actually owned the big Bandit. I've lusted for one but never pulled the trigger and gotten one. I wanted an FJ1200 for years, too. Like the 'muscle car' of the motorcycle world (along with the V-Max!)


But once you own a lightweight liter bike (sportbike), a heavy bike just doesn't really 'do it' for you anymore. The GSX-S1000 makes riding fun, not work.

Yea, I always wanted the big Bandit and the Kawi ZRX1200R, but never had the motivation / money at the time. Now I'm pretty happy.
