Throttle response will be as smooth as a baby's bum after adjustment.
The bike was recently serviced and has the latest tune and slack taken out of the cables. It is smoother but needs more range of motion at slower speeds. In normal riding (not drag racing) I only use about an 1/8" of throttle motion to accelerate through the gears. It will be a few weeks before I try the G2 throttle. They don't have one listed specifically for the Tiger 800 but was told they could fix me up if the bars are 7/8".
