Mine is a DCT and part throttle is very smooth as standard, even at 2k rpm.

Fitted the o2 eliminators today, first impression after a short test ride is they have made throttle response a little crisper, taken away the slight part throttle surging I had going for a long ride tomoz or Tuesday so I'll give more feedback then.

The connectors were a bit of a bitch to get too sitting behind the radiator fan housing on the left side.

I don't seem to have any fuelling or surging issues whatsoever and so will leave it all stock,  my only criticism is the bike has a very light throttle action and so when the bike is unsettled on the road the movement of the bike v/s my body movement can cause me to slightly alter the throttle position and that replicates a surging sensation kind of :-/

Yeah your right there on the light throttle so, maybe that's what I'm mistaking for slight surging.
However, on the short test ride yesterday throttle response was improved.
I'll also see how it's affected mpg this week.

Cozmo, agree with you. Was at my dealer today for its annual service and I mentioned to them that I had thought I had had a couple of occasions where the engine had lost power just for a second or so. I said I had come to the conclusion that the light throttle is easily moved involuntary if you are not concentrating and maybe hit a bump in the road. So I would agree with your comments.

You guys should try the Triumph explorer its silly light so much so that people are using damping greese to try to steady it !!
even on a prerfectly smooth surface it goes from 1/4 to 3/4 to shut throttle without you thinking that its moved at all !!!
CT is not perfect but soooo much better

A tip which was told to me by one of California Superbike School instructors some years ago is to place your hand on the throttle so the little finger was slightly on the bar end weight, works a treat!

Back to the o2 eliminators they've been on for about 700 miles and there's a definite improvement in smoothness, throttle response and MPG so they'll be staying on.
