    A big hi to everybody, I am John I live in Margate in Kent, I have had my CT 6 weeks now and I must confess I have had a few issues.... with the thing leaping about all over the place. Big thanks Vejay your setting are just magic now to enjoy the ride.

    The bike is a 2017 model Red over black, I just love the the colorway!!! Just looking forward to a good summer and loads of miles.

     :400: aboard John sammonds, is your bike a Manual or DCT , some on here have fitted a throttle tamer to the DCT and say they have had good results, i have a manual so cant comment, although it does surge forward if youre not careful at times.
    Others will be able to give better information on the subject.
    Ride safe John and enjoy the ride.  :028: :031:
    keep it shiny side up !!!

    I have the manual option and it is quite spiteful at times so I have fitted a Booster plug to try and calm it down with the suspension sorted and the plug it is a lot calmer, heated grips are needed so I will look at a throttle tamer at the same time.

          I will get the camera out and post some pics     Ride safe be aware

    I must admit that the red over black looks stunning.

    Throttle Tamer is the way to go.  Expensive for a bit of metal, but WELL worth the money.  One of the best mods I've done to my manual CT.
