Harsh transition onto throttle..

Does anyone else experience this? Do I need to just get used to it?


I've experienced this on other bikes but not to this extent. It could be a characteristic of the bike but I just bought it so I wouldn't know... at low speeds when I first apply throttle it isn't smooth it kind of jumps into acceleration. Doesn't really bother me unless I'm in a low speed corner.

No FI light, flapper and pair done, pcIIIusb, sato pipes, bmc filters....

RC51's seem to all need a Power Commander to smooth that out. Mine sure did, and it worked very well.

I'll have to find a computer to hook up to my power commander and check the map I guess. Everything I have is macintosh

Changing from stock 16/40 sprockets to 15/41 also helped.

forgot to list mine is 15/42... I think I might tighten up the chain just a tad and see if it helps.

Hmm then it would seem you're down to the Power Commander ... with a good map ... or better yet a custom tune. At least that's the recommendation on this site; I myself didn't get that done.

PC map helps a bit. Mine is still a bit quick on the power with the throttle. I think it's just the torque of the bike. I just got mine tuned last week, and it's better than it was, but the torque is flat across the graph, so maybe just be really easy on the throttle off corner haha
