After reading the tech article on the throttle stop removal/shortening, and after riding my 2001 WR426 last week, I believe it may be possible that my WFO sputter may be due to the "complete" removal of the throttle stop. Since it was taken out when I bought my bike, I have no reason to believe that it was shortened and re-installed. My local mechanic who prepped the bike says he removed it. Could this be why Im spitting, (WFO), instead of screaming? As stated in the tech article, "the computer gets confused at full throttle, especially at high rpm where it acts like a rev-limiter making the engine start and stop when it reaches about 9000 rpm". I have yet to clip the "infamous" grey wire, but am finally getting into the garage on Monday to do it. Thanks for any suggestions.
