7.0 issues or what?

May not be the right forum, but here's my story ......
K1200R 3000 miles :

I had new tires put on for upcoming barber track weekend at the dealer last saturday - they offered 7.0 while i was there - ok, i say - i rode 100 miles home from the dealer loving 7.0! - commuted each day this week (10+10 miles) still loving it - singing the praises of 7.0 ever since ........

AT this point, I have 160 miles since 7.0 installed:


on my way home today, start to notice "snatchy" throttle - worse than i've ever experienced - before it was over, bike died 4 times in traffic, at speed - rolled into the driveway dead - WTFO - scarey

Anyone have a simillar experiece? It may not be the 7.0, but what??

Thanks for any comments - looks like barber is history for me

I have 1500 miles on my K12S since 7 installed and no problems of any kind.

I hope you get your issue fixed !!

I had my GT upgraded from 6.0 to 7.0. It ran like a dog afterward - very snatchy throttle; abrupt throttle closure when coming off the throttle etc. Took it back and the dealer reset the adaptive values in the computer and it runs perfectly now.

I had a similar problem about 250 miles into an upgrade from 6.something to 6.something higher. The throttle was either ON or OFF. Rode the 250 miles back home, parked the bike and the next day it ran just fine. I took it back to the dealer and they re-uploaded the 6.something higher and it's been fine since. I got the sense that it "didn't take" the first time.

Sorry to hear about your problem. You have the same problem that some of us 06+ K12GT have.

I have 6.x on mine.
