2011 electrical/ignition problem
Posted 08 April 2012 - 01:30 PM
A correctly running engine may have a slight hesitation when you do blip the throttle on from idle. It's caused by the fuel injection being in a lean, closed loop state at idle for emissions testing purposes. There is really no need to blip the throttle. You'll never need to run the engine that way when actually riding the bike. Blipping the throttle from off idle doesn't hurt anything, but it doesn't accomplish anything either. Blipping the throttle between gears is done at higher rpm (well above idle speed) and you'll never feel that hesitation.
You'll want to learn how to do your own TBSes. It is such a simple adjustment, it is ludicrous to pay anyone to do one . It also doesn't accomplish all that much, except make the stealerships a lot wealthier at shop rates.
Fred, thanks for sharing this very helpful post! This exact issue was happening to my 2011 as well- so glad I found this forum!!!
