I think youíre missing the point: the throttle sensitivity is not constant across that 90 degrees of movement. The issue as I notice it is that when Iím braking hard with right hand, throttle closed, and simultaneously downshifting, it is not easy to blip the throttle for downshifts using the same hand. This is because when nearly closed the twist grip needs to rotated Iíd guess 2 or 3 times as far to raise the engine RPM as it would have to be with a cable throttle. That lack of sensitivity is apparently programmed out at higher power settings, throttle by wire allows software to produce an effect analogous to having an exaggerated snail cam on the throttle drum of a cable throttle.I know throttle sensitivity can be reprogrammed in 2021 Ďcustomí mode (because Guzzi literature says so) but Iím also curious whether the new Ďsportí mode has already done what Iím suggesting when compared to Ďroadí mode.
No, I donít have any play in the throttle control. The bike has under 2000 miles. Iíll be careful with the throttle stop regardless, good tip.In theory itís good to be able to map throttle control sensitivity, but as with anything there can be unintended consequences that take a few development iterations to iron out - ask Airbus and Boeing about fly by wire over the last 30 years.In a parking lot itís probably good to have low rpm throttle response like a trials bike with a 22-mm carb, but as per my comments above the way the Ďroadí map is set up for that purpose seems to screw up my ability to blip the throttle when simultaneously using my right hand for braking. Underway and under power itís not an issue. Iíve only ridden the thing a few hundred miles so my body may reprogram. Interesting if others donít notice it, also interesting if the added 2021 modes change it.Another minor thing that could be improved is the response when the cruise control is disengaged. If you drive a modern car and do this, youíll notice the rate of throttle closure is not quite instantaneous, it ramps closed quickly but is not jerky. The Guzzi version is more like an older car, it slams the throttle shut. I figured out I could smooth it out either by opening the throttle before disengaging with the button or by pulling in the clutch to disengage. Or a little of both, followed by resumption of manual throttle control.Lots of fun and games getting used to a new bike.
Iím not trying to belittle your statement egschade, but really...?Itís 90 degrees from fully closed to fully open..(or close to it).Is it because the throttle is too heavy, that you wish the range was less ?
Probably more a matter of getting used to the V85TT action than the spring being too stiff but that said, w/o trying a lighter action I can't say it wouldn't help. It *seems* to require more grip rotation than I've had on other bikes and the initial rotation produces less acceleration. As others have noted this is probably a good thing for off-road use. My wrist may also have more limited range than others and at just 80 degrees so that may exasperate what I experience.Will probably do the spring unwind in the future...
That's what I was thinking but my finders didn't collaborate!
Upgrading my horn and in the process noticed that the leads to the OEM horn seem to be pretty stout. Has anyone just wired a pair of horns into the existing circuit w/o using a relay? The ones I'll use draw 7A.
I would not trust the horn button contacts to be sturdy enough, I.e., be able to handle the current.Dan
Went with the relay as suggested. One horn works but the other doesn't. Oh well - the working one is still much louder than stock until the replacement set arrives.
Pridanc, You are going to love this bike. I did the viscosity change on both my '20 Ronald version and also on my '21 Centenario with good results. The fluid level remains constant, but the viscosity decrease takes away the harsh "running over a 2 x 4" feeling. It is very common to get 2.5 wt fork oil and I might be tempted to use it for even better results. Try it, if you ever want to go back to stock, there is nothing stopping you since you haven't changed anything else. Congrats on your new bike.
Only a couple of days waiting to EICMA, followed by 5 years wait, and then 2 years to figure out the recall wonít happen. Enjoy the past
