Episode 3 : Throttle Blade Derestriction

Brock’s topic of discussion is throttle blade restriction. Here is a detailed video discussion to not only verify the processes to prove ETV restriction exists on the 2017 GSX-R1000, but also demonstrate that a properly flashed ECU can open the blades much sooner and also prevent this power-robbing menace from closing the blades prematurely. Watch horsepower suddenly appear like magic, with no other modifications to clutter the data. The best news? Brock and the crew are just getting started! And this video will give you a glimpse into the type of scientifically-controlled chaos Brock and StupidFast racer, Richard Gadson, are willing to endure to extract every last pony from Suzuki’s latest offering.
