    Guhl Reflash Throttle Snatch & Engine Braking Improved?

    I might be dredging up an old topic, but I cannot find any straight forward answers...

    I have a 2016 standard CT. Am thinking about doing the Guhl reflash, but I am more interested in smoothing out the low gear throttle snatch and the rather abrupt fuel cut off when throttle is backed off. Bumpy roads (a lot of them where I reside) cause unwanted throttle movements / bike jerkyness.
    Anything else I get from the flash is a bonus.

    Can anybody give me their Guhl reflash results on the throttle snatch / cut off issue?

    Thanks in advance for your input.

    There is a guy here in the Netherlands that can do flashes, even remotely without you having to remove the ECU and ship it.
    He did my 2012 CT and it runs much smoother. In every gear it now has al perfect linear feel and i didn't put it on a dyno but it does feel more powerfull also. I don't really care about the numbers, for me the smoothness was the only reason.
    My bike was the first CT he did.
    You can reach him here https://www.facebook.com/sabsteef or by mail Sabsteef@hotmail.com.
    He already had a lot of bikes done with good results, even overseas with remote access.

    Subscribing to this thread in hopes of learning something.  I tried unsuccessfully to reach out to Guhl a year or so ago and got frustrated when there was zero response from the company.   :006:

    I have viewed numerous Guhl reflash reviews, especially on the VRF 1200F forums, where power and performance have been the positive highlight. I have yet to find a review that addresses the throttle snatch and fuel cut off. There are other ECU reflashers, that can reflash other manufacturers bikes, where throttle smoothness and control are addressed.

    I have no problem with the throttle control.
    I also do off-road and there is a smooth throttle necessary but even there i have no problem.
    Tomorrow i will make a nice detour with some off-road on the way to a friend, i'll try to think about taking notice to see if it really is no problem or that i just never noticed.
    As i mentioned, i have the sabsteef flash and the mapping for that flash is build from the base data from my bike.

    Something you have to know about the CT. I find the first gear very short and there is a big difference between the end of first and the beginning of second.
    Just know that the second gear can handle very low rpm without stalling but you have to be ready before the turn or correct it with the rear break in combination with a little throttle just like in hairpin turns.

    Thanks again Ray. I have reached out to Steef and will see how your off roading throttle reacts. Thanks for 1st & 2nd gear tip.

    It took me a wile to trust the second gear, it always felt like the bike would stall but going back to first made him too aggressive and therefore not smooth.
    I also ride a lot in the mountains and this knowledge gives you much more joy out of the bike and if you play it just right in the hairpins with the throttle and rear brake every time you get out of the hairpin it's just like you have launch control  :027:
