2000 f4 throttle

Now I understand it's just the nature of the beast but is there anyway to keep the throttle from being so twitchy? I would love to have a just a tiny bit of play

gunnar,

I think you need a PCIII, to get a nicer throttle response, and a bit of qulity dyno time, worked for my 2001 F4 750.

You might try loosening one of the throttle return springs on the left side of the bike. Many times this ameliorates the problem. A 39 tooth sprocket sometimes helps. Finally, a trip to the dyno or a good tuner should solve it.

Wink twitchy?

like Carl said unhook the left throttle spring.....add a little play into the throttle by putting a little more slack in the upper (pull) cable

I recently got all the recommended twitchy throttle fixes done: PCIII, dynotuning to smooth out fueling, new plugs, TPS adjusted, left throttle spring removed. And there has been a definite improvement in throttle feel... it improved from terrifying to merely frightening. It is still pretty nervy rolling onto the throttle mid-corner in the lower gears. The upshot is that the throttle gets easier to modulate with practice, but the first few rides of the season can be pretty nerve racking.

I found my 750 the same when i got it so, as CAG says, take off a throttle return spring, I then fitted a pc111 & had it set up on the dyno-

Then finally, fitted a Ducati 998 throttle and ducati grips, this turns the long reach Mv unit into a quick action throttle- it also dispenses with the unnecessary Mv 2 throttle cables in favour of just 1 so it's far neater

Results are great, no more snatchy go go juice and 6bhp more

as above said but the f4 1000 already has a quick action throttle of sorts
i looked at fitting an r6 one but the twist amount was the same as my 1000 so never bothered
