Nup sorry, i can't bite my tongue any longer so i'm going to poke this hornets nest and let the cards fall where they may.
I just don't get this whole sooking and crying about the free play in the throttle thing. Have none of you ridden any other bikes before? Cos i am yet to ride anything that doesn't have some free play in the throttle. It's not by accident you know, it's actually an intentional thing deliberately engineered into motorcycles.
Then there are other posts from people complaining about the throttle being to snatchy in race mode.
So which is it? Is the throttle too sensitive or to sloppy?
C'mon! You can't seriously expect me to believe i am the only rider left who has decent throttle control and has never found this an issue. Cos i tell ya, this is not something i have ever given a second thought to, let alone had it interfere with my riding.
I even considered buying a set of these just to see what the **** has got everyone so worked up but honestly, i've got better things to spend my $30USD/$40AUD/30,000 buttons on. Booze and pizza come to mind, although i am trying not to eat too much pizza as i may get fat fingers and lose that special throttle sensitivity i have, lmao!
And please Mr spacey please don't think i'm casting shade on you or your little cookie cutter thingy's, i'm totally not and am all for people coming up with neat ways to fill a niche and make a buck. People (and especially Ducati owners) spend all sorts of silly amounts of money on totally ridiculous things and i'm a strong believer in each to their own. But when they go on about it like they've found god or something i'm kinda left scratching my head at what the big deal is.
Ok, rant over. If nothing else i have given this thread a bump so more people can see it and realise that they have found something they absolutely must have for fear of the earths rotational forces suddenly going into reverse if they don't.
