I'm Liking the FZ1's, did they ever update the fueling after the first yr. that all the wussy magazine people complained about?? Or did people have good luck smoothing em out with a pcIII?

From what I've read, they revised the mapping for the '07's and did it again for the '08's. Third times the charm?

The '06 fueling issue is not solveable by a PCIII alone. Ivan's Performance makes a great little device called a FCE, which is short for Fuel Cutoff Eliminator. The problem was that to be Euro 3 compliant, Yamaha programmed the ECU to shut off fuel delivery on decel above 4500 rpm. The drawback is that when you roll on throttle on decel above 4500 the intact tract has to rewet itself before the cylinder sees fuel. That causes that lurch that is so annoying if you're riding the bike aggressively.

Ivan's device fools the ECU into thinking the throttle is never closed. It also changes the opening rates of the secondary throttle blades which are controlled by the ECU. The added benefit is a siginificant boost in midrange torque and horsepower. The end result is the smoothest EFI bike I've ever ridden.

Excellent post Chris. The 06' got a bad rap; kudos to Ivan for the solution.

That's the best explanation of the FZ1 fuel cut problem I've heard yet. FTI, I added the FCE and the 16t sprocket. My mechanic rode it and said it pulls like an R1 now. The bike is sweet and it's allot more fun to ride now.

Kudos to Ivan.
