Hello everyone. I just successfully completed an msf course on my fz10. Love the bike but it definitely gave me a fight during some of the exercise's. One thing I noticed was the throttle is extremely twitchy during low speed and the bike doesn't seem happy at any less than 15 mph. I kept it in standard mode considering the max speed during the course was around 22 mph. I am curious if any of you have experienced this? If so did you find a good solution for it? Pretty sure I have read the 2wheeldyno works flash could help this issue. Any input would be appreciated.

Yes The 2wheeldynoworks refash is a must. He'll I was out all day Saturday doubble up rideing in my tight twisty mountain roads in B mode! 95% of the time. Also I hear that you can install a R6 throttle tube to help? Get the flash any way and unleash the beast and smooth her out. You won't regret it.

I'm just impressed that you used your bike for the course. I took my test back in 1975 so they had a driving test at the DMV that was a bear. They give the MSF course just down the street from our house at a local high school and most of the people taking it use the provided Honda 250's.

I guess coming from a Ducati I was used to weird throttle behavior but I do find it twitchy in B mode for sure.

Glad to hear the flash had such a postive outcome. I definitely plan to get it done, but probably won't happen for a bit. I want to get a 3/4 exhaust system and flash all at once to minimize downtime.

Trust me it definitely made it much more difficult using the fz10. It became very obvious I was trying to do things the bike was never meant to do. For all the really low speed stuff I found the bike was only happy when feathering the clutch and staying in the friction zone. I have already done the course in the past on a little 125 cruiser and it wasn't to bad on that. Being in the military I have to get recerted every few years on an msf course and up here in alaska they don't provide a bike for the course. I also liked the idea of trying to hone my skills on the my own bike. It was definitely fun and a challenge.

Being a Veteran myself I remember that was also a requirement way back as well. Thank you for your service Osiris.

You're welcome and thank you for your service. They are getting very strict with motorcycles now. Not surprised considering the majority of people don't look for bikes.
