    Flying through the plains, thanks to a very eager throttle

    Yesterday I was very lucky. I am aware of the very eager throttle ... and yet yesterday I flew with the engine and all through the plains. For the neighbours a great performance (not caught on camera, lucky me).
    Fortunately no damage but scared me to death. Does anyone have a good tip on how to tackle this eager throttle problem?

    I fitted a throttle tamer and made sure the free play was minimal, it helped a lot.
    If you have Honda heated grips then you have to scrap them because the throttle grip and tube needs to be replaced by the throttle tamer and a new grip (Oxford in my case).

    Installed AS3 Performance throttle cables, and also left bit of lag at throttle grip to have more controlled acceleration.
    OEM cables seems to operate with higher resistance than aftermarket ones, and as result you may end up with uncontrolled acceleration in certain situations.

    Thanks for all the tips so far.

    Thanks to the tips I have made progress in tackling the problem. I didn't know you could reset the DCT. Initializing has already worked wonders. I also had the engine tuned by Stefan (sabsteef@hotmail.com). This has also done the engine well, can now drive very relaxed at walking pace.

    I'll keep in mind the AS3 Performance throttle cables. Ik don't understand what you mean by "left bit of lag at throttle grip"?

    It  means that throttle doesn't accelerate for the first 3 - 4 mm when rotated.
    Some people like sharp throttle, other prefers bit of slack.
    I don't have Booster plug or other devices helping out at low speed, bit of slack at throttle helps me control my bike way better.
