Throttle spacer and DQS

Question for those that track and have throttle spacer.

Man, I am not used to this. No play (I know it's good) but shit I am getting thrown off by the sensitivity. Did it take you guys long to get used to it? Should I continue and get used to it eventually?

Oh and I added RCS clutch and first session my DQS UP and DOWN wasn't functioning... not sure why and started to work at low speed when I was coming in. What you guys think?

I'm a intermediate guy and still long ways to go.

I am currently in T Hill. Lol will post pics later.

i've always like zero play in my throttle so for my other bikes with a cable throttle, i've always adjusted it to have zero play.

it does take some time to get used to it and to open it smoothly from zero throttle, but since you just installed it and you're at the track now, you might want to remove it until you have more seat time with it. Installing it and taking it straight to the track without getting used to its sensitivity is gonna be dangerous!

as for the clutch, no idea why changing the master would interfere with the DQS as you don't need to touch the lever for anything other than neutral to first but gl out there!
Thanks from youngR

Did you properly re-install the clutch switch when you switched masters? DQS is probably programmed to disable itself when the bike thinks the clutch is pulled in so if that switch isn't right that might be your problem.

Clutch wasn't installed by me but by a shop as it was siting there anyway.

Funny enough that in low speed i.e. Just cusing in pitlane, I can shift up and down easily...

I know what you are talking about but I think DQS has nothing to do with that. You shouldn't have to pull in clutch to engage QS. I heard it was just that initial fueling when clutch is pulled in.

The spacers I received came with (2) sized spacers. I installed the larger one first...took a quick spin...ended up putting in the smaller size. Not sure if your kit was the same. The larger spacer felt a bit too crisp for me as well. I got used to the smaller spacer at a trackday as well. One session and was good to go. Hopefully you get it figured out. Good luck.

It came with 2 spacer. One big one and one small one but they want you to install both. Maybe I can install one and take other one out.

I installed mine and my throttle became telepathic. I think of it and the bike gives me that instantly. But i learned that your arms need to be very loose on the bike with throttle by wire system. Stiff arms mean road bumps translate to throttle movement and jerky ride. Panigale requires change in riding style. If you keep your arms bent and hold the throttle like screwdriver, bumps don't upset the bike.

I wonder if I can install just one but yes it is instant.

Mid corner bike jerked few times. Not used to sensitivity

Midcorner jerk may indicate stiff arm. When leant over, the bike has less suspension to work with bumps because the forks are no longer perpendicular to the road.

Got it and acknowledge about suspension. No need to explain

Obviously I'm not use to it. I tycoucally do up to 52 degree with stock SPs

Right now it is very sensitive when I'm around that lean angle.

If 0 is stock and 10 zero slack (currently), I think I prefer around 7
