My guess is that the cables stretch a little in the first year of riding. I did the same adjustment on my 650 Strom without issue. Am I reading more into this then I should be? Since this bike is new to me I find myself hesitant at times to start tinkering too much.
You just need to get TuneECU and hook it up to your bike. It has an "Adjusting the throttle cable" mode that will retract the stepper motor correctly so that you can set the proper throttle slack.
