Finally Got to Ride It Today

I have had it almost 3 weeks and finally got to take it out today. It wore me out. My hands are sore, my shoulders are sore and my back is sore. Maybe it is because I usually ride my Raptor in the sand and not trails very much, but this thing is scary fast. My biggest complaint is the very touchy, sensitive throttle. Surely, there must be a way to change the pressure needed to give it throttle. I took a 13T sprocket with me and decided pretty quick that the 14T needed to go. Put the front wheels in the bed of the truck and the rear about half way down the ramp so I could get under it. Didn't go as planned. Forgot to take a socket to fit the chain adjuster. Ended up putting it back together and rode it with the stock gearing. In the rough stuff, had to ride the clutch to much at low speed. Even small rocks and things had me bumping the throttle when I didn't want throttle. The way I feel right now is that if I had of been able to ride it like I did today, before I bought it, I probably would not have bought it. But I really like the power. Didn't like it in the tight trails because of the throttle. Maybe gearing it lower will help me change my mind. It will be interesting to see how much the sand tames it down.

The throttle is very snatchy...many complaints on that. I think the lower gearing will make it worse. You'll get used to it after a few rides. EFI is a different animal and Honda didn't refine this EFI setup much. If someone could remap the exponential around idle it would make this much easier to ride in the tight stuff.

ive just got mine about 3 weeks ago and just got to take it out this weekend and was very impressed the power is amazing and it handles like a dream this quad was built for the bush i use to ride a z400 and this thing is 100 times better alround i love this bike and for all the nonbelivers they must not have ever rode one because if you were to ride one you would be hooked i boughtmine with out even test riding one and i regret nothing the only problem i have with it is that i lost all ambition to work and would just rather ride but fuel comes at a price.so i guess its back to work till the next ride....

Someone must make a programable computer module that can address this. Do you know if the dealers have a reflash for it or has Honda just ignored it? Are the '09s the same? At this point, I am wishing I had not purchased it. I don't think it is something you should have to "get used to". Something is not right. I don't think it is something you can just brush off by saying it is because it is fuel injected. My Pontiac G8 GT doesn't do it and neither does my diesel pickup. Some of my friends with injected Raptors do not have it either. Same with RZRs. It is something that can be addressed if Honda chooses to or by a 3rd party. This may be why Honda is discounting them so heavy rather than having to deal with the software issue. They just want it out of their hair.

It's like any other machine I've ridden, you have to get used to the throttle of the bike. After a few rides you won't even notice anymore because you'll be used to it. I've seen this issue with quite a few of the street bikes I've ridden where they are so powerful you have to be very careful the first few rides.
