Welcome welcome chances are being brand new your not being very smooth but hey check out the slack on the chain and there is a marker on the rear of the swing arm by the bolt that will indicate where your chain should be and if the rear wheel is straight

Also where in the midwest are you from?

you dont need a pc to smooth it out, save your money till you comfortable with the bike, if your not comfortable yet no pc will help that

Yea +1000

The throttle is a little sensitive..

I looked like i was having a seizure the fist few day on my bike...
But then again, I never rode a bike in my life before i got on my rr...

I drove a stick-shift car for a year before i bought her, and that was the only reason i didnt wipe out... I kinda understood the whole clutch gear concept, but it was kinda hard trying to adjust to changing the gears with my foot and the clutch with my hand tho..

I took my '03 straight to work from the dealer and i been riding her ever since :cruising:

Anyway dont worry its normal

Welcome aboard. You think the throttle is twitchy on the 600RR try being smooth on a GSXR600 or 750. You'll be amazed at the smoothness of your bike.

I took her out today and used the clutch a little more...coming from racing 4wheelers i was always wanting just to pull it in all the way and let go. Its getting much easier to ride. Thanks


And for whoever asked I live in Newton, IA

*edit*
Were the 4 wheelers you raced thumb throttle? The muscles in your wrist need to be trained. Pratice being smooth and rolling on the throttle very slow. Baby steps. A jerky throttle leads to a jerky bike. Lots of major accidents are a result of poor throttle control common with riders who have no previous motorcycle experience.

Do you have alot of freeplay on your throttle? You can adjust the cables on the throttle. I did this, and now tis alot smoother.
