New software load, new bike

Had the '08 K1200GT in for some service (including the usual front brake broken wire). I asked the service manager to check on a new software load, since the bike still had some stumbling and hesitating in the 3k to 4k RPM range. Yes, there is a new load available and they loaded it. A great difference -- smooth on/off throttle, smooth in stop/go traffic, and only the slightest hesitancy when quickly opening the throttle. I am happy.

When in doubt, apply more throttle.

I had my software upgraded yesterday, what version did you have loaded? Mine still has the flat spot between 3- 4 thousand RPMs.

I don't have the version number (though I will get it). No flat spot 3 to 4 k RPM, though it is at the low end of the power band.

When in doubt, apply more throttle.
