Question?

My throttle is like a on/off switch. Its really hard to make the bike coast. Its a lot more noticable going thought the apex of a corner. If you try to coast it thought it will either accl. or decel.. Its really touchy. Is there anything I can do? Would adjusting the TPS help?

I already have a TRE. It didnt help any, I am thinking about puting a 1/5 thottle conv. on, but I dont know it that would help or hurt it.

You don't really want to coast through a turn anyway. You want your throttle cracked just a little in order to transfer weight to the rear tire. If you are coasting, that means that you are probably slowing down...putting weight on the front and loading the suspension unnecessarily. The bike is actually less stable that way...

My .02

Bikes: '88 EX250 (sold), '86 Nighthawk S (sold), '03 ZX7R (R.I.P.s), '07 ZX10R (sold)

I don't like repeat offenders; I like dead offenders.
My idea of 'gun control' is putting as many bullets as I can into the same hole.

Iím all for gun control, I just define it a little differently. If you can put 2 rounds into the same hole from 25 meters, thatís gun control!

I think a 1/5 throttle would make it worse, since you'll be applying more gas quicker. You'd have to be more precise with the throttle...

Where are you in the rev range when it's happening? Low, mid or high? And as Jessiah asked, which gears?

What about playing with your cable adjustments.

It all in the wrist. Trying twisting smoother. I had the same problem until I told myself to be smmmoooooooottthhhhh with the throttle helped. Mind you these also help. PCII + good map. GI Pro, and believe it or not a quick throttle.
