Hello Mates .

I was wondering , what are the differences between the 2016 and the 2015 full throttle .
as far as i've noticed after working out on both my motorcycle and my brother's .
the differences i've noticed are :

1.Rear Mud guard / Licence plate mount
2016 : Plastic
2015 : Alloy

2.Rear light plug
2016 : got a small clip to mount it on frame
2015 : no clip just throw it under the seat .

3. throttle response
2016 : smooth and light on grip
2015 : bit harder and bounces from null

4. Front Brake
2016 : more powerful Front braking
2015 : regular braking on fronts

5. Rear OEM turn signals/blinkers
2016 : got a frame support next to the 2 torx bolt from the back side
2015 : Just a standard mount with no improved

6. front brake line and power lines ( maybe done by the italian bloke who built it)
2016 : longer under the fork and shorter on the headlight side (more sleek looks)
2015 : just wraped as is .

there's another post about the ride height , dunno still , but will get some info tomorrow .

Cheers

So did I. On impulse. I'm just learning how to ride and wondering if this is too much bike for me. Still haven't worked up the nerve to just get on it and ride

Don't let the power discourage you as it's all wrist control. Take your time and ease on the throttle and get comfortable with the clutch and know your bikes "friction zone". Thats where the clutch is eased and the throttle opens up and and you start to propel. Also familiarize yourself with the back brake so in case you jolt your bike or release your Throttle too fast it will slow you down and you are more less likely to panic and lose confidence. Our bikes have a snatchy throttle response but it's not intimidating as long as you ease on the throttle. I suggest cruising in a parking lot till your more confident on the controls. This bike is fine for beginners and season vets. Congratulations and post some pics I'll do the same

^^ yup!

Rear brake is your best friend! (often underestimated, especially among experienced riders actually)

Agreed! I was going to get a G2 throttle tamer or switch to the desert sled throttle tube but I have the OEM heated grips so I am out of luck. But the rear brake has been my tamer! I think we often forget how useful it is or we just take for granted how effective it is to regain control of your bike with it. Throw in the abs and we are golden!

This may be teaching you to suck eggs so I apologise in advance…

For me at least road surface played a part and I found after a long hiatus I was way to tight on the bars. If you can concentrate on firming up your core and relaxing those arms and shoulders, gripping more with the legs, you'll find a lot of the snatchiness disappears. Once I'd learnt to ride again it smoothed out an awful lot.
