Can anyone give me the heads up on pulling the secondary throttles. Is it done much, Who, what , where and Why. I am thinking about doing it, Not worried about the bike bogging, I think I have a good enough feel with the throttle to open it at the right speed. Jas

I tried without and got a nice dip at 6k revs-then put them back in and gained 7hp without remapping.... go figure?
I found out that Matt Mladin didn't take his out either.
if you want a sharper throttle, spend $30 and buy an R1 throttle tube. 20 mins later and she's a nicer ride!

it has to be mapped in order to see any gains

i have never done it or ridden a bike with them out, but i hear its magic once its properly mapped.

I had them out, it runs better with them.

Leave them in. If you plan on other motor work and tuning then might as well, but otherwise you'll sacrifice smoothness.

Don't do it. IT will kill what little mid range pull the k7 has. I don't even recommend it on a k5.

Suzuki put them in for a reason. Mate of mine did it on his K7 thou, My 750 blows past his thou under acceleration! Hes now started with shorter gearing, filter etc etc to try and sort his mid range out! Little does he know that all he has to do is fix what was not broken in the first place! Muppet! lol!

Absolute waste of time. Plenty of people will tell you they have 'head' of improvements but nobody has actually done it on a modern bike and found it worthwhile.
