Best way to get rid of stutter/fart/burp at 3-4K rpm?

I finally have about 1000 miles on my 04 1K. I love the bike but would like to get rid of the stutter that happens at low rpm. It's really annoying when having to creap along in a parking lot and the bike starts bucking like mad. Only really seems to happen after the bike is run for a while. Can the dealer change the mixture or do I have to go aftermarket?

On the road I keep it above 4K so its not an issue. It could almost be considered a hazard at low speed not to mention emberassing. I had a 2000 sv that was smooth as silk throughout the powerband.

Mine, like most, have/had the same issue. Here's why. The EPA tests emissions on bikes at around the 2500-3000 RPM range. Therefore, bike manufacturers make their bikes run lean at this range to meet "standards." To correct this have your mechanic richen up the midrange; takes all of 3 minutes to do if he has the little "black box" to hook up and remap. Problem solved. :wink:

One of two things... Install a Power Commander to richen the mixture and/or have your throttle bodies checked

hmm,,that sounds pretty annoying, is that for both of the DL's or just one of them ? *IE the 650 or the 1000 ?*

I've never had that issue with my '03 DL1000.

Interesting that this came up today...

Because I was at the dealer looking over the Givi bags that I'm having installed...a top box and side cases in g730 metallic silver (very, very close to the '04 Suzuki silver colour).

Another '04 Strom owner was there, because his bike had been backfiring in this rpm range. Mine stutters every once in a while as well, but his is much worse. I told the dealer about this thread, and the proposed solution, and he's going to try this with mine when I bring it in next Monday for its 1000km servicing. :wink:

Thanks for the tip, and I'll let you know what happens...

I just visited the Power Commander website. They do show a map for the DL1000 and they are working on one for the DL650.

Mapping done

Picked up my bike after its 1000 km servicing, and the mechanic did as recommended and richened the mixture. He admitted that this was the firs time that he's done this...it seemed smoother on my way home, although I didn't take it too far today. :lol: The wind was howling, rain was coming down, and I even saw some white stuff mixed in (and this is late April?).

I'll keep you posted.

Two weeks later,

over 200 km farther and the problem seems to be gone. The engine's still running smoothly in the 3-4k range. It's idling a little too low now (just over 900 rpm) so I'll have to adjust that. All in all, I'm quite happy with the results. Thanks to DesertDave and SemperVee for the tips!
