    For those that have the sensitive throttle issue. This is not something that you will get used to, it is an issue with some, not all. Emailed Honda of America and they claimed this is the first that they have heard about. Nobody has complained to Honda? The dealer says they will mention it to the rep. B.S.  The throttle is loose and there is no way of making it stable. Cable has been adjusted by me and the dealer so that is not an issue. I installed a Kaoko throttle stabilizer and it did the trick. No lurching at lower speeds over bumps and just a pleasure to ride.This snugs up the housing so you don't have play in the throttle but still snaps back. the only problem is you have to tighten the allen bolt on the throttle stabilizer so the stabilizer doesn't roll to the off position making it pretty much useless for that open highway cruise control. Honda needs to correct this on these bikes. I will be calling them again today and anyone else that is having this problem should let them know. I was going to get rid of this beast but not anymore.

    Believe me, you will get used to it, it’s just very sensitive.
