Throttle Response Incredibly Twitchy, PCV? Full exhaust the cause?
I have a 09 Cbr600 with a full exhaust system (Ti-Force headers & Erion exhaust) and power commander 5. I've found that the throttle response especially <6-7K RPM to be incredibly twitchy. You can turn the throttle tube maybe 2mm and it will feel like throttle is on/off. Could this possibly be due to the full exhaust/pc5 mapping? Is there a way for me to adjust the power commander or do I have to get it professionally done? I looked at the maps online for PC, but it appears they don't have a setup like mine? What do you do then?
At first I thought it was my poor throttle control, but after letting several people ride it, they commented exactly the same. Talked to some other CBR owners, and they mentioned it was a common problem as well?I also have an 07 Street bike with just a slip on (no PC), and it is no where nearly as bad.
