Bike Jerks going from Off throttle to On..Help

I have a Muzzy and a PCIII.
If I'm off the throttle, and then roll on the throttle a bit, the bike jerks as I roll the throttle .. going straight this isn't a problem.. but it's a problem if I'm off the throttle during the turn and I have to roll on the throttle while I'm dragging a knee...

is this normal? is there a way around it?

I've updated my PCIII and tried a couple of different maps.. one custom for the bike and one custom for another exact bike.

Try Ivan's TRE, that may help you out with the on/off throttle transitions.

Try adjusting the throttle to zero/ 0 play instead of 2-3mm and see how you like that, but just make sure when you turn the wheel to full lock it doesn't effect the RPM's.

My bike had throttle play and I had the guys take out all the slack when they put in the PC III. That solved the problem...bike had the problem since day one and I didn't know it until someone who had experience with other bikes told me it was a problem on my bike.

Problem solved...no jerking through corners.

I adjusted all the slack out of mine, but I still have to be very careful in a turn, especially when dragging a knee... it's just very abrupt. I don't have a PCIII or anything though, so maybe that or the TRE might help.....

so I removed the slack out of the throttle.. I think it's better but it's still abrupt.. it's okay if I get on the throttle really really really slow... I just wish I get on the throttle quicker during a turn without trying the sport of drifting.

so, how would a tre work with a PCIII.. I though having a PCIII eliminate the need for a TRE.. is that true?

Thanks, You guys are great help.. even in personal issues such as jerking

Yes so does mine?

I wonder what the problem is?

Hmmm... Let me think...

OH!! I Know I know!!

It's the throttle response! Its the HUGE amount of power!

Didn't you read any of the magizine write-ups on the bike before you bought it?

They all said the same shit.

Hard to ride. Not for amatuers. Have to have great throttle control or the bike will bite back.

I think I can fix your problem. Take out some of your sparkplugs. Start with just one at first. Then take the bike out and see how it feels. If it is still feels a bit to jumpy then take out another. Repeat the process.

I would not recommend taking out more than 3 of the plugs however.

The TRE in very simplistic terms modifies the ignition settings. The PCIII for the 10 does not have this capability. Ivan has maps to work along with the TRE for your PCIII.
