Just an update. I had reflash completed by Sabsteef Tuning in Netherlands. I have had the Bike out on a couple of runs since. The last was a 3 hour run which included town, highway and rough backroads. I can definitely say that the low end throttle snatch and engine braking have been nicely subdued. The bike is now very smooth and less nervous feeling then before. The bike feels much more like an ADV then a sports bike. Power is definitely still there but is more gentleman like in response. I kept all the safeties and most limitations in place. I asked for the smooth and I got that. Not sure if Guhl would be the same, but I would very much recommend Sabsteef. He is able to do it by mail in or he can do it remotely. I sent mine to him, but there are some gentlemen in Aussie that did it remotely with great results from what I read in their reviews.
I am glad I did the reflash as I was starting to shop around for another bike because of the throttle response. No way would I get another bike now. Loving the CT!
