Throttle Dead Zone, Is it adjustable?

Recommended Posts

Superchibisan

Hey there, I got on my FZ07 the other day and it really felt like the throttle deadzone increased. It used to be pretty small, now I am seeing a good half inch or more of travel before the throttle actually kicks in. 

 

Is there a way to change this? I would like to make the dead zone much smaller so that I can manipulate the gas while use the front brake in an easier fashion.

No fear, the worlds largest FZ-07 forum group has ya covered. I did a simple search in the search bar up top and Boom!

 

 

Go grab yer 10mm wrench, this is easy as hell.

Rememebr, there are two adjustments. One on the upper end of the cable, pull the sleeve cover back where it meets the throttle up top, and if that isnt enough, then do the one down by the side of the bike. 

 

Be sure to test it with handlebars twisted sideways, so that you dont end up over tightening, and making it rev up when turning.

Chances are if you over-tighten it then:

1. turning the handlebars might rev the engine

or

2. (this is more likely) when you give it gas, it'll stick and the revs wont drop.
