Ducati fitted the G2 throttle tamer for me, but the throttle response is still very snatchy... low down

It is fine from about 3000 rpm upwards and has a nice feel. Anything under that not good Best way I can describe it is light & slack no resistance on low down revs so extremely sensitive to touch. I kinda want it to behave more like an elastic band resisting the pulling action...

Any other modes out there to correct this anyone had the 2017 throttle tube does it feel like this ?

Opposite for me, G2 tamer changed it completely, can ride walking pace over bumps now, impossible before. Corrugated dirt or slippery wet roads were really awkward, no longer. Did you get 600 cam (G2 recommended) ? Gives about half as much turn as orig
Other than that, is it well run in ? If still new, maybe some miles on engine will do trick

The bike will go on its own at about 6 mph just extremely sensitive to touch..

What is a 600 cam ?

It has over 700 miles on the bike .

I can't remember the number on mine but yes, it's still snatchy at low revs. I've learned to manage it with the clutch. The G2 helps a lot at slow speed though - I have much better control in roundabouts and the throttle is no longer on/off when maintaining 30-40 km/h.

Yea I dont get that, to gain control on roundabouts I often have to ride the clutch a little

Maintaining speed is good providing the gear is correct, and the revs are above 2500 - 3000 rpm

Yes you could ammend your riding style, which is fine and perfectly acceptable, to counter the overly lean fuel mapping. I've had race bikes on the road that required some "understanding "

You could also employ a non linearity throttle cam if you wish.
Since adoption of a "not for road use" mapping I can pretty much ride however I like and ride it as a motorcycle should be ridden. Your choice.

I rode with the 2016 stock tube for about 400 miles. I fitted it with the G2. Made a huge difference but there is still some "snatch" to it, but not as bad as it was. Give it a little more clutch if you are doing slow maneuvers.

Booster plug solved the snatchy throttle for me on my first scrambler but on my second one I've got the ducati race ecu and termignoni which also tames the throttle.

I got the Rexxer map and can't say I've noticed an effect at low revs. Then again the bike has been in the garage for more than 4 months, my memory might be playing tricks on me.

At full throttle though - wow! What a difference a few bytes can make.

Yeah Defo has more juice at the top end with the zorst and ecu chip, the throttle felt slightly softer as struggled 2 up before I got the booster plug unless I got used to the snatchy nature, the wife also stopped head butting me!

I'll give the bosster plug a try also gonna order the 2017 throttle tube to see of that makes a difference. .

This is my first bike so might have to put up with some novice questions.

Sounds like the cam is different to the throttle tube ?
I never opened the G2 throttle tamer package gave it straight to Ducati so dont know what was in it. Should it have come with this cam ?

I'd try the 2017 throttle tube first before you shell out for a boosterplug.

I have a 2017 Scrambler, and apart from a grabby clutch on a cold start, it's very smooth and not snatchy at all. My DR650 is more snatchy (and I always called that bike smooth as peanut butter).

The cam is the large diameter disc bit on one end of the throttle tube. On the G2 throttle tamer it is interchangeable for different bikes. A 600 cam is recommended for scramblers.

The throttle tube and cam are all one item. The tube is the part that the rubber grip is slid over and the cam is a spiral shape that the cable wraps around, located inside the housing next to your thumb.
Different shaped cams allow the throttle to open slower/quicker depending on the curvature of the spiral.
There are no stupid questions but prepare yourself for some stupid answers.

Thanks appreciate that.

Here's a photo of the original 2015 cam with the G2 600XX cam placed on top of it.


Much smoother handling at low revs.

Regards,
Paul
