Has this bike always been like this?

When was the last service done?

Dunno about the BMW but I picked up a Power Commander USB3 on eBay for my '03 R1. I tried two maps from the website, one for standard equipment and one for my Akrapovic can and K&N filter. Oddly the PC standard-equipment one worked best, leaning the mixture and getting rid of the momentary, annoying delay in throttle response just above idle (-present with the standard can and with the Akrapovic). Lovely!

Hi, only had the bike 2 months and thought it was me ,you know new bike and all, but realised it wasnt and started to dig deeper and found a lot of them have this issue, the bike was serviced when purchased from BMW Oxford and have even fitted a boosterplug which improved it slightly but it still needs more attention. Fantastic bike , good looks and bloody well shifts, just want to sort out this jerky throttle......

Do BMW do

a different throttle cam for it? won't alleviate fueling probs but will soften the throttle response :smile

Could also try remapping the ecu before forking out for a PC and dyno time :wink:

Take it back to the dealer and ask them to make it right,they should lend you a bike till it`s sorted or get your money back.I had the same problem with a brandnew bike which ended up having a power commander fitted on a rolling road by a tuning specialist,I was compensated just over £100.

Cheers , I think the power commander is the only way and I will see what BMW Oxford will do about some compensation if any ..... Merry Xmas
