As Nick's ECU flash offering came to a close, I gave quite a bit of thought to making a change. Although there are other options to alter the throttle response, this was the one I considered most, and ultimately decided to leave it stock. There is another reason for my decision, better left for some other time (it's not about Nick or his business; he is 100% awesome), but looking back across several months and many miles, admittedly without prior experience (other than brief "demo" rides) on motorcycles with the FZ-09's power, I learned to better control and appreciate the FZ-09.Am I the only one who likes the aggressive stock throttle response? I'm reading all the time about throttle tamers and throttle fixes but prefer the aggressive response of the stock throttle. Anyone else?
I love my stock setup. I absolutely love the explosive power right off idle without having to twist the wrist very much.Am I the only one who likes the aggressive stock throttle response?

Maybe its just me, or my race-car history, but ive found the stock throttle response to be bang on. Ive never felt a disconnect or delay between rear wheel response and wrist action. Actually the opposite, I find I can be more precise than I could with the dbc. It allows for precision fueling, which in turn actually forces you to keep a part of your attention on the throttle position midcorner and that prevents complacency in the turns. For anyone in the know, complacency or being too comfortable and relaxed in the turns is the fastest way to the gravel pit.Its all about predictability, for those of us who are used to the mechanical throttle (cable straight to throttle body), we want the rear wheel to be in sync with the wrist. This is most critical when your leaned over and trying to shift weight from the front to the back or visa versa with precision.
Having a throttle out of sync with the rear wheel and trying to adapt to it adds more variables you have to think about when riding. If your riding fast, you want to focus your attention on the road, obstacles, body position and weight transfer. Throttle control is critical and is easier to put into muscle memory when its smooth and in sync with the rear wheel.
Great bang for the buck mod!I just installed a G2 throttle tube and it rides the way it should have from the factory. Out here there are a lot of roads that CalTrans seems to look past and they are filled with potholes, tar snakes, tree roots, and various animals who have crossed over to the other side. The G2 has made the bike so much more manageable and has made me fall in love with riding the bike as opposed to ALWAYS thinking about the twitchy throttle.
It didn't solve the issue 100% but I'd say it's at 90% now. For 70 dollars, I am so pleased. It's also a plus that the full power is all there, just not in an on/off fashion now. Just wanted to throw out a low cost solution if ya haven't looked into it!
You don't realize how bad it is until you fix it. Then you will like WOW!I have no issue at all with it, was wondering the same thing, also have no issues with the suspension other than the pogo effect when hitting hard bumps but im at 165lbs too so I could see 200 plus having problems....
I have had it up to 10K+ a few times and yep it do pull strong. But it has so much bottom and mid range power that I don't feel the need to buzz it.Hawkerjet wrote:
