The $2 "ECU tune"

I finally cracked the code of the throttle response issue on cable throttle equipped ER-6s

Or, you could just adjust the throttle cable properly (using the adjuster screws/nuts).

As far as I know, I did. The adjuster (I only found one) doesn't take out anywhere near enough slack, and as the cables stretch the problem will come back. It's a good fix.

There should be one on each cable (throttle and return) up near the handlebar/throttle grip assembly, and there may be another one on the return cable somewhere behind the frame or under the fuel tank.

Also, throttle cables shouldn't really stretch much, if at all, since they don't have very much force applied to them.

I gave you a like for the effort but I am not convinced only because I know that the engine/throttle response problem has to do with fueling.

When one day the engine/throttle are so responsive and the bike picks up like it has more hp and it feels like you fitted a shifter when changing gear and the other day it feels jerky and lazy and choppy without touching any cables it's all about electronic fueling messing around with the mixture for emission and economy reasons if you ask me.

I don't know man. Throttle has always been so-so for me. It just doesn't feel as bad over time once I'm back into the riding season. This literally fixed all my issues overnight. I mean at the end of the day it's like 30 minutes of work and $2 in parts... try it, and if it doesn't work put it back. Pretty harmless and temporary mod.
