No such thing.  You must have a 2008 model (first model year).

You do know there are other countries ... right?  ;)
OP hasn't given a location and some places did indeed get 07 models.

My 07

No such thing.  You must have a 2008 model (first model year).

has a bit of a on/ off thing going on, just off of idle.  I've had a Shudabeen flash, which has made the bike almost perfectly fuelled. It's just the low speed snatchiness.

As Chi pointed out, this is almost always due to throttle play needing to be adjusted.  It takes only about 60 seconds to do.  I find it needs adjustment at least every few years.

Is it possible the secondary butterflies have been removed, and their loss is responsible for my low speed fuelling woes?

You shouldn't have the bike flashed if the secondaries are removed....  controlling the secondary butterflies is 95% of what the flash does.  If the flies were removed, you would notice almost no difference before and after the flash... otherwise, the change is dramatic.

Do you have much free play in the throttle?  That can result in snatch too.  I prefer my throttle tight - with relatively no free play.  Makes the off/on transitions smoother (to me).

Is it possible the secondary butterflies have been removed, and their loss is responsible for my low speed fuelling woes?  Is there a way to tell if they are present, without stripping the bike down?

Thoughts?  Advice?

Many thanks chaps, Nick

You'd be better off for it.  8)

Yeah, I am beginning to think [i
maybe[/i] some of those posts about people "needing no adjustment" were shady dealers ripping customers off (charging for a clearance check and not actually doing anything).  But who knows.

 I completely agree Max NO WAY will all the valves be in spec. Im at 17k and I sometimes let my rpms get over 5 grand  :o :o
  I bet if i pulled it apart its ready for some shim shim.

C, leave it to you to find a political angle in a random picture. You ought to give it a rest.  :rotflmao:

Hi Coffee_run

Welcome!
Congrats on your new machine. If it's in great condition I would think that's a fair price. Does the ABS pump work? That can be costly.
Tires good?  Most have more miles by now so that's pretty low. There are lots of posts on what to look for in a used C14.
Have fun and soon you'll want more power!  Tune it!

The short answer is yes.

The longer answer is "no", but "yes" if you also change the mirrors, inserts, other panels, moving relays, etc :)
