Could you please explain the advantage of having this on the road over stock set up...?

The link is below for the spacers. The spacers just take up the free play in the throttle grip itself. It goes on the black lugs for the DBW and makes it a dream.

You can grab the grip lightly and turn it back and forth about an 1/8" before the spacers. After installing the spacers the grip will no longer have the free play is all.

The second mod I think the computer adjusts for as once I was riding it didn't seem any different except the throttle grip itself not having any free play on the DBW. I should have done them at different times.

The throttle is absolutely amazing now!

Are you not scared that the throttle could get stuck ?

Just do the spacers to take up the free play in the throttle tube. I really like the ability to comfortably blip the throttle with 2 fingers on the front brake lever.

The one thing that I did notice on the DBW modification was that the throw of the throttle seemed a lot shorter.

I just marked the bar end and I have a little less than a 1/4 throw throttle from closed to WOT (wide open throttle).

Can someone check their throttle throw and see what it takes to go from off throttle (take up the free play) to WOT (wide open throttle)?

Please measure from the point you can feel tension from the throttle to WOT to see if it has more then 1/4 throw stock.

Thanks!

Thanks! That is what I needed to know. I just marked and looked at mine again and it is just a tad under 1/4 turn.

I think I am going to reverse this mod for a ride on Friday. I will do that ride to see if it made any improvement.

I pulled the throttle apart today to check everything and do a final lubrication of all the moving parts.

I pulled apart the DBW again and messed around with it some more. I really don't think it makes a difference.

It will only start in 2 positions of the entire gear. 1 position is lazy and the other position is tight.

I left mine on the tight position which sounds like same position, another "R" owner confirmed above.

Only way to be sure would be to have another right next to it. This way we could see when the throttle starts to work against the spring.

I also think a TPS learn would correct it to the same range position as stock so long as it is in one of the 2 positions.

Panigale Racing Throttle Spacers

The Throttle Spacers are amazing. They take away the free play in the throttle completely.

The throttle tube is just in constant contact with the drive lugs on the DBW unit, no free play at all.

Thanks for posting this LC; I've hated the sloppy throttle ever since I got my bike. However, after getting some to install, I of course ran into the typical glitch one tends to encounter when working on a Duc. Need for a tool you don't have... What size driver do you need for the two Tri-wing screws inside the throttle housing? Seems I need to round up a driver that I'll never use for anything else so I can install the darned lugs...
Thanks from leftcoast32
