Interesting discourse, which I enjoyed. The snatchy throttle was solved in my bike with a boosterplug, bought from Denmark, for $200. The Danish inventor, Jens Lyck, is the guy who runs the company, and he has published all his research on his webpage boosterplug.com. Apparently, since 2012 all new motorcycles sold are mapped lean to comply with EU emission standards, so the bikes are starved for fuel electronically at low revs. I presume the same standards apply in the States.As it turns out, the GSXS1000 is the bike most affected, however there have been fatalities here on other bikes because of it. A year or so ago, an experienced rider, on a new Aprilia, was waiting to turn right onto a highway, with a big semi trailer behind waiting to follow. He made his turn with the truck following, his bike stalled and the truck ran him down. My personal veiw is that the fascist EU bureaucrats should never have been allowed to get away with plonking their paranoid standards on vehicles like motorcycles that are inherently unstable, that is only two wheels. Fair enough if they want to plonk them on cars,but even then the manufacturers like VW cheated.
