I just got rid of throttle slop!

1. unscrew the two black screws in the throttle housing. The back will come off.
2. turn the throttle; you'll see where there's a constant gap between two black parts when twisting the throttle, and this gap can close at zero throttle - the cause of the slop
3. I read somewhere that someone had wedged in some 3M thick doublesided tape. Due to the grease in there, I couldn't get mine to stick...
4. So I cut a small plastic shim that fit into the gap; I used an old plastic license plate frame that happened to be about the right thickness.
5. I dabbed a drop of superglue on one side, then with tweezers carefully wedged the shim in there.
6. I pushed the throttle *forwards* to clamp the shim until the glue set (a few seconds, I used fast-acting superglue).
7. Reassemble housing (20 second job)

I'm one of those people that can't stand even a millimeter of throttle slop. I thought I was hosed with this completely fly-by-wire system, but nope, all the slop is gone

I used the DP kit - a rip off at $80, but it fits perfect and eliminated all the slop. Takes less than 5 minutes to install, and the parts can't shift or jam the throttle in the open position.

I bought my spacers from here. Throttle Spacer Kit Ducati Panigale 899 1199 1299 w Detailed Color Instructions | eBay

Very quick install, I spent more time finding the Tri wing bit. For anyone looking to do the install, you can buy the Tri Wing bit apart of the security bit set from Harbor Freight for less then $10.

On my bike I have two issues with the throttle:
1. Throttle slack / slop
2. After you have started turning past the throttle slack and it's turning against the spring tension there are few degrees where the revs don't move.

I've ordered the spacer kit, but does it for problem 2? That's the hardest thing for me to get used to and I've never experienced it before on other bikes.

Perhaps it can be fixed mechanically or with a remapping of the fly by wire (throttle position -> injection) settings ?

yeah, get the tps reset at the dealer.

the throttle housing contains a large gear on the grip that turns a small gear, which holds a permanent magnet. this magnet turns over a rotational hall sensor. you "could" try to reposition this one, but i would really not recommend it.
