Low speed fueling?

Getting ready pick up my '13 1090RR this week and was wanted to ask about what others have done to address what I perceived to be a slight fueling issue at low speeds. Are there map updates for 2013 that address this? Or, can it be dyno'd and remapped? I found some posts on the Microtec ECU so I'm wondering if that's the only solution. I'm not really concerned about adding power at this point - just want the bike to run properly.

Thanks for any advice and input.

Ride it first. I think you will find it is much better than the Duc for throttle transition.
The biggest improvement I found was to have the throttle cables adjusted properly, I found that the return cable was way loose. Once adjusted the difference was amazing.
I also found a difference when I packed the rubber cushions on the sprocket carrier to remove all play and let the rubber do it's job.
Do not be tempted to over tighten the chain.

Excellent - thanks Revhead. That's the kind of counsel I was looking for. Small world - I was in Brisbane last week on business - rained like a mofo! Really nice downtown - lots of cafés and small shops.

That was only light showers!
If you are in town again and have some spare time, let us know so we can catch up for an ale or caffeine.

I just bought a 2011 version of yours with 2400 km. on the clock. Love the bike but the same issue. Did that seem to do the trick?

I picked up the bike on Tuesday night and other than the test ride I haven't been able to put any additional miles on it - so - no - I haven't had a chance to play around with anything. I'll put some miles on it and let things break in just before I start trying to diagnose anything. I know the bike is geared 'short' to keep revs up to get more torque so I wonder if that could be part of the issue - and curious if anyone has changed gearing.

I remember early on I thought the throttle was really snatchy, took a while but now my wrist is calibrated i don't even notice. The only drawback is every other bike I've ridden since feels flat & gutless now!

Going to check throttle body balance and ignition timing first and then go from there.

I recently had this experience - I demoed a Brutale 800 and I couldn't get used to the throttle feel. It felt so disconnected. And I know people love the 800, so I know it is probably that I have gotten so used to my 910R (all stock). On my bike, the connection between the throttle and the engine is so intimate that it takes fine movements of the throttle to ride smoothly and I've gotten so used to it that I don't really notice just how sensitive it is until I get on another bike. Most people and magazine editors call it snatchy, which I totally understand. However, now that I've learned to work with it, other bikes feel "gutless".
