Lag in Throttle Response

My '06 100RR has about 14,000 miles on it. Lately I've noticed a lag between the time I roll on the throttle and when the engine begins to pull. AND there's a jolt now when the engine kicks in. Bit of a problem when leaned over at the apex and rolling on throttle causes the rear to buck. Any ideas what's happening and how to fix??

Re: Lag in Throttle Response

Thanks. I had done that with no difference. It's wierd. Doesn't matter what engine speed I'm at or what road speed. Even if I back off the gas for just a split second it still bucks if I come back on throttle hard. No problem if I roll on smoothly - but that's no fun!!

Re: Lag in Throttle Response

Re: Lag in Throttle Response

obstruction in the airbox or air intake? Dirty Air filter, dirty fuel filter. ? Check your service papers and see if they replaced those. If not replace them.

Re: Lag in Throttle Response

Good points.
I'm over 15k miles now so it'll be in for service the next 2/3 weeks.
The guys at my shop are pretty good so they should figure it out (hopefully).
I'll post what they find and if my baby runs better when I get her back.
In any event, I think it's time for new pipes and PCIII (and sprockets, and suspension, and throttle cables, and steering damper, and new job to pay for all this...).
