Throttle response on 07 ZX

The only complaint that I have ever had about my bike the very abrupt open and close of the throttle. It makes it very "jerky" when trying to use some finesse. Anybody else experience this and have there been a definitive fix for it?

I do have a TRE in but it's not Ivan's. I believe I got it from Danos performance. Do they all do that?

I would check how tight the chain is if the chain is to tight would be verry jerky with throttle input,and check for any play in the throtle cable no play in the cable would make it jerky also.I run my throtle cable with no slack in them but that is how I like it.Also if you still have the stock exhaust on it,the exhaust valve makes the bike verry unprdicable on throttle input also.When you remove the valve with a new exhaust the bike becomes much smoother.Just my

the first two FREE steps are adjusting the chain and throttle cable. On the throttle make sure it doesn't stick or drag from full lock to full lock and adjust both the pull and return cables. Too tight or too loose chain adjustment is no good as well.

I also removed the cables for the exhuast valve. Don't remember if it helped smooth anything though. No valve with the AreaP back installed anyway.

A good map makes the biggested difference IMO. Mine was pretty lean in the lower rpm's/TP's. Lean will make for jerky responce. Ivans will be pretty close if you go that route.

I have to call on that one. I think it may be 6th though. I'll call tomorrow.

Thanks for the input guys. I'll double check on the chain and cable adjustments. I will say that this is something that has always been there since zero miles. I do have a full Arkrapovic race system, so the servo is gone and it is running on the rich side with a PCIII. I am however waiting for the servo eliminator because I now have the FI and it's running in default so maybe that will help too. If I find out that the TRE I have isn't set for N then I will order Ivan's.

Well I got rid of the motor and installed the eliminator and I am still getting the damn FI light. Do I need to reset the ECU or something? (Not that I know how.)

Well I found out what the code is that it's throwing. It's a 25 which is the gear position switch. So it says in the manual. So I guess now I need to test the wires on that thing and if that is fine then I need to test the ECU. I would think if my ECU was bad I would know it though. Wouldn't I?

I called Danos today he said that it's mapped for 5th gear but he also said that it should test around 9.2 as well, so I don't know.

Turn the TRE off. I had the same problem with my gipro with TRE. W/ ot on in any setting I have a severe on of throttle sensation. to remedy the problem I simply turned the TRE off. A sudden jerk whole at full lean coming out of turn 3 on summit main can be scary as Shet.
