    Is there any way to make the FZ6 throttle less twitchy/snatchy in 1st/2nd?

    You know when you've rolled off the throttle in 1st or 2nd and are in decel, but then roll the throttle back on, the bike kinda jumps/lurches? Is there anything that can be done to mitigate this? Power Commander maybe? Just kind of annoying, especially when going through the twisties, it's a bit unsettling. Adjusting free play in throttle cables doesn't seem to change this. My throttle cables are also brand new.

    Any tips?

    Not sure what else might work but just changed the sprockets to a -1/+1 and it changed all that twitchiness in the throttle. More low end torque, less top speed, and lower gas mileage, but no twitchiness.

    If you went one up in front it probably even made it worse than stock, based on my understanding of the calculations and the results of each tooth up or down.

    Make sure your chain sad is correct. The more sag the more you'll feel the ON from OFF kick. Just don't make it too tight (stay within recommended limits).
    G2 Throttle Tamer works. https://www.g2ergo.com/store/g2-stre...throttle-tube/

    This came on my V-Strom (also known for twitchy throttle, but not nearly as bad as FZ6). It greatly smooths things out in the initial part of roll-on, but it's not for everyone.
    I didn't like that it sort of made the bike feel slow. Requires quite a bit of a twist to really get into the throttle.

    JM2C but you fix the throttle response, you fix the problem.
    Fuel controller and a good map.
    Advance the ignition.
    Free up the exhaust.

    All is well. No issues w snatchy throttle. See sig and/or do search on the topic. Good luck.

    As for the sprocket change, getting the engine above 5k will reduce a lot of this. But thats only good for a few situations.

    Simplest fix is to practice smooth throttle rolling. It took me a few weeks but once your right hand adjusts the FZ6 can roll as smooth as anything.

    Tried the G2 tamer for a week, HATED it, the bike seemed to loose 30% of the power (completely subjective feeling). I only kept it on for as long as a week because I wanted to give it a chance but didn't like it.

    It hepled with the roll-on but I wanted my bike back!

    +1. I didn't hate it, but it definitely made the bike feel dull.
