07' Thottle glitch

I meant to discuss this question the other day with a couple of the other Yamaha riders, but have you noticed and throttle lag in 2nd gear around 5k? It happens unexpected and for no apparent reason. You could hit it and get serious lag. Then repeat again and everything is fine, I get normal throttle response. It happened yesterday while following the gxsr/ supra race.

Your thoughts and comments

I read about this in a bike magazine the other day, they were complaining about it to at or below 5k. They changed the rear sproket to give the bike a little more power down low.....I think they went up 2 teeth or something like that.

Are you confident it's throttle lag and not part of the 06-07's huge HP dip in it's power curve? I haven't had any throttle lag issues with my 06 R6 at all, in fact I was surprised how responsive it was when I got it. I didn't think it'd be even close to the same as a standard operating throttle configuration.

Have you checked the R6MN or R6 forum?

Let us know what you find out!

I think you are running into what most racers have said about the R6 all along. It is VERY lacking in the midrange. I've riden a few and find it all the same. A PCIII should help smooth out the curve Derek is talking about, and give crisper throttle response. If that dosen't fix it, take it to Jimmy C for a supersport build. Yummy...........

...and you can regear it also in addition to a PCIII like Buck mentioned. I went -1 in the front on mine and felt a difference and now I have coming in a -1/+1 sprocket setup because even -1 isn't enough for me.

And Moody is right. If you want the new R6's to GOOOO you have to keep it above 9k RPMs. That's where ALL of its power is. It is less forgiving (SLOOWWWEERRR) than other bikes when you allow it to dip below around 8k RPMs. Above that range it screams.

Most sportbikes come from the mfg, tuned WAY down from the true potential. All sorts of electronics supposed to keep us safe from ourselves. The "wheelie wire" is a good example, supposed to keep you from throwing yurself off in first gear. A PCIII is the first step to get control over it and set the bike up to suit your style, taste, or whatever. Get a good exhaust, air filter set up, and a PCIII, then go visit your favorite Dyno shack and get a custom map made for ya! You will notice the difference imediately.

Its just the peaky torque curve. Check out this months issue of Fastbikes and they do a full review and the chart shows the hole @ 5-6k and then its smoothness from then on.
