    Solution will be in damping the Throttle grip.
    To test a man's character, give him (horse) power.

    I've not heard of any such update for that,
    but would recommend that you ask an official Triumph Dealer
    as there are often Service and Technical bulletins that are published
    by Triumph to their Dealer Network, that are never released to the Public domain.  :028:

    Cheers  :821:

    Thanks for the suggestion. I have already spoken to Pidcock Triumph and they couldn't find anything on their computor.

    I found the Throttle grip to be somewhat "sensitive" - possibly due to the
    relatively small diameter of the Grips compared with my fat fingers !

    I found that the addition of "Grip Buddies" ( Other brands are available such as Grip Puppies etc )
    not only made them more comfortable, reducing the "buzz" that can be felt,
    but improved control by making the Grip diameter a little but bigger.

    You could also try running the "Engine Adaption" process,
    which can help things run smoother by "Adapting" ( Calibrating ) the ....
    • Closed throttle position reference status
    • Twist grip adaptation
    • Oxygen sensor adaptation status ( off idle )
    • Oxygen sensor adaptation range ( off idle )
    • Oxygen sensor adaptation status ( idle )
    • Oxygen sensor adaptation range ( idle )

    To run the process :
    • Start the engine from cold WITHOUT touching the throttle
    • Allow the engine to warm up until the Cooling Fans kick in.
    • Allow the engine to run for a further 12 minutes
    • Switch the Ignition OFF

    I agree 100% with Coconut's observation about the small grip diameter being the cause of any perceived snatchiness in the throttle. Grip Buddies solved the problem for me.

    I find the throttle response quite slower on this bike than on the 1100 CBRxx Super Blackbird...  I really have to think about it when I switch bikes.

    You do realise the Bore x Stroke dimensions of the super blackbird are quite different?
    The super blackbird has a really short stroke of 58 mm and the triumph has 71.4 mm of travel? Makes for a much higher revving engine in the blackbird.
    And the bore of 79mm compared to the 85mm of the makes for a lower torque at low rpm in the blackbird when compared to the triumph.
    Also, I know the throttle response of the bikes in question vary by the injection timing and the cam shaft profile, but you can tell so much from the numbers of how a motorcycle engine responds.
    There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.
