Personally, I don't see the problem as being associated with a particular rev-level; rather more the matter of feeding-in miniscule amounts of that lovely torque while riding slowly around gravelly tight corners and suchlike. //snip//

Umm, so feathering the clutch, as I've been doing for the past umpty years and exty miles isn't yr answer?

Very valid technique, I'm sure, but it would take finesse that I may not have!

My current method of managing the Raptor 1K's throttle response at small throttle openings is to have at least two fingers resting on the front brake lever and that makes it easier to gauge the throttle twist relative to the 'bars and control it much easier than a free-hand twist of the wrist. Only the 1K needs this because others of my rides have slower throttle cams and the newest one, a Ducati Hyperstrada, is ride-by-electronic-wire that has a slow start programmed in, followed by ballistic power with very little more movement. They call it Touring Mode! :happyhappy:

Righto, I've been riding mainly the raptor for a long while, I know changing up with the scooter was a "laugh" when I hit the wrong lever :doh:
Slow start sounds scary, I need zilch to thirty pdq from home most days

Just idly looking through old posts, and it seems Renegade Hippy* never got an answer to a query about the ProGrip 714 bar grips that work so well. They do come with blind ends which need to be opened to fit bar-end weights, and have double flanges on the inner end that may need trimming if the grips are longer than needed.

Dunno if RH* is still with us here but, if so, :thumbsup: !

Still here and good to know that my rubber hacking was appropriate in this case! :thumbsup:
