Rough throttle action on decel.

What causes the bike to feel like it has hit a brick wall when you chop the throttle? Are there any mods to reduce this?

2008 R1, stock induction, twin yoshi's.

Thx,

Britt

engine braking, remove some spring in the slipper clutch then you wouldn't have engine braking.

Slipper clutch is supposed to do this. Thats about it. Its a function of compression + blocking off the bikes air supply.

Turn the idle up a tad, but don't overdo it.

My 05' GSXR 750 had more engine braking than anything I've ever ridden. It must be those secondary throttle butterflies. My two buddies who ride and race both commented on it when they rode it on the street. You'd never notice it at race pace, but when taking a slow turn it can throw you off a bit, regardless of riding experience.

Appreciate the responses. Its almost like there is no transition between idle and part throttle. I'll roll off as smooth as I can, and at a certain point, it just dumps.

Put your bike on stands and make sure the wheels spin freely. I know it sounds funny, but some people have WAY over torqued their rear wheel, causing the swingarm to bend in and put a bind on the rear wheel/bearings. Just a suggestion. (stock wheels should be torqued to 89 ft lbs.) Also, assure the brakes are not dragging.

Another way to check this would be to simply put it in neutral and coast.
