OK, the new box / software and my take so far.
Well it was a cold and wet 130 miles home but none the worse for wear. I'm going to get out of MT for a couple of weeks or so in a few days and head to hot weather and put on a few thousand miles. That will be the real test. But for the time being here's what I think.
Rode the bike through stop and go and open highway. 0 to 120mph and everything in between. Stop and go and throttle response is definitely improved. How much....eh....maybe 30% or so. It's definitely NOT as touchy though still more sensitive than my old RT ......but improved. Riding in city traffic light to light was easier, though not perfect. However I attribute a lot of that to the sheer power of the bike in the first place. I'm not so sure I'd want to tame it down any more.
Absolutely no BBS at all. Put the bike through the paces like doing 30 mph in all gears. No problem. The roll on power across the board seems to be much smoother. No hesitation at all. No more or less power than before just smooth across the power band. Also the touchy throttle at speed is improved. IE .......if I bump my throttle rocker ever so slightly as in the past while cruising.....it doesn't send me from 70 to 80mph in a heartbeat.
I guess High Idle will have to wait and see until I spend some time at speed and in the heat. That was my biggest gripe. Jumping to 4000 rpm at a light with a car in front of you is very sphincter puckering! However, I never had the problem in the colder weather. Only after time in the heat.
So all in all a welcome change. Night and day different? No. So far I'm happy with the throttle response and power band. But if the High Idle never rears its ugly head again I'll be a very happy camper. Time will tell. And so will I.
