I did it. There are no decent tuners around here.

This is the same conclusion I've come to as well👌

I then went back to the stock throttle tube and gearing (It wheelies easier coming out of corners). Now I can ride the thing and the touchy throttle is very manageable. You can't be ham fisted with the throttle but reasonable application is very smooth.

Really? You dont like the s1k? I love both bikes but I like the bmw more for some backroad corners. It feels so much lighter. I like the h2 more for highway stuff since it has so much raw power.

felix74 If you don't like on/off of your throttle, you can ask to Brocks if he flashs your ECU with these throttle by wire maps:

I'm using these maps on my H2 2015 stock.

Chipmonk Thanks for the ideas guys. I may take it to ryan and see if he can do anything for it since hes within an hour of me. Im about to order the 42 from brocks too.

H2015 Ted has done some work in this area, so look for his posts on the topic.

I have a 42T rear sprocket, and have put a different throttle tube on the handlebar - the stock gives around 1/6 turn only to full throttle, the one I have gives around 1/4 turn (so a little more turning to full throttle). Plus I have had the ecu Woolich tuned with onroad datalogging to try and give a better throttle response. All this has helped somewhat.

But, as Rick150 writes, these bikes seem to be more sensitive to throttle input anyway. I have just got used to its way of working.

BobC My 2015 has always been like this, more so after I had the ECU flashed. My bike still has the Lambda sensor which keeps the mixture weak in the closed loop area of revs. It happens just below 3,000 rpm and if you get stuck there it hunts. Higher gearing does help, I use 19/42. I'm used to it by now and just avoid riding at those rpm but unlike Chipmonk I'm not jumping between bikes very often which must make it more obvious.
