So how does it perform?
Is the commuting better now - jerkyness gone?

want to rid of the surging at low throttle? disconnect the O2 sensors. get some O2 eliminator plugs or solder in the proper resistors.

I too installed the G2 with the #400 cam on my 2010 KTM SM-T.
My problem was with the rutted back roads; every time I'd hit a rut, the bike would "jump out." The G2 solved the problem. Also, it was a very easy (10minutes) install.

G2 throttle cam helps but ride with one or two finger resting on top of the brake level. if you hit a bump you won't change the throttle position. especially on an SD with stiff suspension.

That trick does work, fast, but not on the roads I'm talking about ...and with those I ride with. They require a lot on throttle movement, and a good grip

Try a Ned tip... bring your right hand in from the right rear of the grip instead of from straight back. Elbows up, then turn the throttle like a door knob. It greatly improves your throttle control

Again, I agree. But I think solving the problem ...which the G2 did for me... beats compensating for it.

yes this new cam works great,much smoother right off idle,and the twist to wide open is less than the original throttle tamer,and yes i have the 02 sensors gone,with fmfs,and mapping,the jerkyness is all but gone,now i just have to decide if i want to go with a motohooligin air box,with the akra mapping[this is a whole other debate]

I put the Akra map in shortly after I bought the bike, and I'm curious how much fuel economy I'm sacrificing with that. Does anyone have a good comparison stock vs Akra slip-on map?

FWIW, I'm getting about 32 mpg with the Akra map, I don't really care about the efficiency but the range isn't that great.

Interesting. I put in 4.894 gallons @ 165 miles yesterday. Close!

just got one

I picked up a new, left over, 2008 SuperDuke yesterday afternoon. So far I couldn't be happier. It's far lighter, more agile and a ton more fun than my previous ride.

It's black and all stock - so far.
