B3 bogging down from standstill.

Hello MV Guru's,

My 2012 B3 with 14,000km tends to bog down from a standstill no matter how many revs I give it.

I had the 12,000km service done and had the throttle body (By that I mean the throttle on the handlebars) replaced.
Acceleration once moving is wickedly fast though.

As I'm still quite new to my bike, the TC is set at 6 in normal mode would this limit my acceleration from standstill?

Any opinions or comments would be gratefully received.

Yes, TC at 6 will limit wheel torque from start to prevent wheel slip.

Set your TC at 2 or less unless you are ham-handed and riding on slippery surfaces.
