new twist grip throttle cam profile?

Anyone know of a source for a "milder" cam profile for the twist grip throttle to make throttle control smoother at the low end? The twist grip cam-not the motor cam
Thanks

So you want to change the ratio between degrees of throttle grip rotation versus % throttle opening at the TBs?

Two options;

1- Instal a programmable throttle by wire system or
2- Instal a larger diameter throttle grip.

I would sure like to see the 1st option available as a farkle....anybody?

The Accelerator Module (like the Booster Plug) smoothed out my low rpm throttle response on my 09 GSA. Otherwise I'd have been looking for what you are asking for too.

I have this on my 300xc, it really helps with a whiskey throttle in tight sections. I believe it is made by G2

You might want to call www.g2ergo.com. Lots of dirt bikers use them. That's where they got their start. FJR and Triumph guys mentioned them on the throttle hesitation threads.

The BMW GS has exceptionally good fueling off idle. I'd suggest removing as much slack as possible out of the throttle cable. Sounds counter intuitive, but works very well at making the response match the input.
