I was close!!!! Buhahaha
I bet you were right as well Felix. In addition to retarding fuel cut, I'll guess that they changed timing advance as well. A lot of engine braking that results from a lot of timing advance at zero throttle means better scavenging of residual gasses so is probably part of the emissions tuning required to pass specs. But it makes throttle control more twitchy then it needs to be.
The list of things from Shnitz is almost exactly what Ivan from Ivansperformanceproducts.com does for a lot of Yamaha bikes and for the Ninja 1000. Fans kicking on sooner, less engine braking, increased RPM limit, eliminates need for servo buddy, etc.... in my mind Ivan is a genius, and what he does to improve fueling and throttle is nearly legendary amongst the people who own the bikes that he works on.
