Personal preference my friend, not everyone wants to be the same. Me, I like to ask for something and get a response when I ask for it, not to have to keep rolling on. I know myself and my bike well enough to know what's coming. Some people like the safety margin/become used to the 'slop' and use it to their advantage.

It's nice to have choices.

I have recently installed the spacers onto my 1199S (January 2018).

It has transformed the bike in terms of response and response at low speed. Before I was guessing where the throttle would come in and get it wrong on occasion. This would make the bike lurch a little and made me not too confident in low speed corners (10-30 mph range).

Overall it has improved the bike but beware, it takes a little getting used to. Once or twice I grabbed a little more throttle then I should have and ended up wheeling down the road like a "Sandton Yuppie" (Redneck with money and no taste).

Applying the throttle is good with no slop but prefer there to be slop when rolling off the throttle.
