I'm not sure I will have it that long if I dont....
I think I would be spending the majority of the time on my Wee Strom instead.
On the upside I would have no problem making a bit of money selling it right now lol

I learned to handle the abrupt throttle for two years before getting the ECU flashed. Yes, you can train yourself to adapt but when you deal with as much traffic as we have here in SoCal, it’s fatiguing. After flashing, I wondered why the hell I’d put up with it as long as I did!

There’s lots of imperfect things in life we can learn to adapt to, but if there’s a fix why put up with it? Me, metaphorically, I’d rather fix the leak in roof, even though one can learn to empty the catch bucket periodically.

The throttle control tables in the ECU can be modified with a Power Vision 3 from DynoJet.

The deceleration tables and fuel cut can be adjusted as well.

I guess I just feather the clutch for fine tuning. I don't even think about the actual "doing" anymore. And, I LOVE the engine braking. Wouldn't trade it for the world. But I'm weird that way. :oops:

Been riding my new ST:
Open the throttle, bike speeds up.
Close the throttle, bike slows down.
So far, so good.

It can be a bit twitchy as has been mentioned, I'm working on that now.

That's his opinion, and he's welcome to it. My opinion/suggestion is just spend some more time in town riding. You'll be amazed how quickly your wrist "recalibrates". Gas and clutch, learn the gray area. ;)
For me it was more the deceleration and how abrupt it was, I thought the initial power delivery was fine and was able to adjust to that quite easily. Every time I would let off the throttle it would jerk forward and I found that very unnerving.

That's what I like about it. It may come down to how much, and what kind of riding you do. Most of mine is city, and back roads. Plenty of reasons to accelerate/decelerate. Closing the throttle is like throwing out an anchor, instantaneous. I've gotten used to it, and use it.

I personally like the instant decel, makes me think I'm driving my SuperDuty diesel. Ya I know its a motorcycle, but did you know it's the truck version of ADV motorcycle and not the sport bike version, that's KTM.
When loaded with 2weeks of gear the decel is a nice thing, especially descending a steep gravel grade.
