    Throttle jerky at low speeds

    Any suggestions
    When commuting in traffic find trying to stay at 30mph all most impossible. Either can hold throttle at 35mph, but a fraction off the throttle and no throttle at all, making progress very jerky unless I'm feathering the clutch. Running in 2nd gear

    Hi Noddy dont think there is any way round this other than race map and pipe , i have a 17 and thats meant to be better but i cant do 30 mph smoothly have tried all gears . was lucky to have an 18 rsv4rf for a few hundred miles and strangely that was great at 30 mph . the thing is dont ride in traffic but here in uk there are so many 30 zones my bike has 20,000 miles now and is a little better than when new this is something i asked the dealer about when it was new , don't think " officer it wont do 30 " would ever work

    Thanks Svenbeast, thought that maybe the case, but worth asking.
    I have in Sport, so will try the other maps to see if any make a difference
    Love the bike, probably not built for commuting 🤔🤔

    Is your bike a 16 , my 17 has different names for the maps sport is very on off with max engine breaking track smoother with less engine breaking , race is least engine breaking and best for town and smoother throttle. The map names dont really seem to make sense.

    Cheers Svenbeast
    Mine's a 16, according to handbook S (Sport) is best for road, T (Track) and R (Race).
    I will give R ago and see how it goes, quite like the engine braking in S though
    Will have to be in a couple of weeks, working away

    Hi Noddy from what bit I know the ecu learns how you ride eg grab big handfuls of the loud handle or smooth roll on and roll off so when your back take it for some smooth rides and see if that works or if you can restore factory's settings and then teach it your style of riding

    Hi Sven
    So put in Track "T" for this morning commute
    It seems smoother than in Sport "S"
    In S it wants to run at 36 mph to not be on/off. In T I can run at 32mph, so a definite improvement
    All I need now is for the commute traffic to run at 32 mph or above
    Now to teach the ECU, smoothly on, smoothly off, if that is possible with a 1100 V4
