    Overly sensitive throttle..

    Not really an issue in itself, but I just thought I'd trow it up...as you do...

    Can't really complain about much, the bikeis pretty good straight out of the box to be fair....
    However, I'm finding that the throttle can be snatchy now and again, and really really sensitive to the slightest input.
    You hit a slight road undulation, your body posture changes ever so slightly,(can't stop that) and a minute movement of your arm can cause a huge movement at the throttle....never really experienced this before.
    Not complaining as such...just feels a bit hair trigger at times.
    Anyone else?
    Or just me.

    I'm experiencing the same, more so when in SPORT mode I find.

    Yes.
    Can always click down to RAIN mode, which is less sensitive.

    The ease of changing modes is really good. No harder than turning headlight high beam on and off.


    While it can easily be addressed in tbw lookup table, it's absolute throttle position vs expected power output, not rate of throttle change vs power. Flattening table until after X throttle opening may help.. but there are trade offs..

    Since 110km/hr is around 4000rpm in 6th gear, and there is big lull in torque curve between 5 and 6000rpm, you may find throttle less sensitive to bumps in a lower gear when you have to maintain speed limit? Ie by keeping rpm in the "dull" range

    But yeah, feels like bike always wants to be ridden "dynamically" 🙂

    Is it true that modes only affect first 3 gears?
    Can you feel difference in sensitivity between modes, in gears 4-6?

    For me I don't feel the difference in the higher gears, however I do notice down lower, hence the twitchy throttle experience same as OP is witnessing. While the stock mapping is still quite good, I have always thought that the bike probably needs a little more refining in that area I thought.

    May also depend on Engine Brake you choose. In the beginning I only rode in User Mode with every parameter on level 1. This was because I felt the hard throttle response too. Then I got used to it and now I prefer Standard Mode. In the mountains more EB helps.
