I *slowly* increased throttle from idle to about 4000 rpm and then
*slowly* reduced throttle back to idle, checking for balance the
entire range. It stayed in balance. Repeat. Still in balance.
OK, no need to adjust cables.

I've an early R1150 with the single spark. I once rode a R1150R loaner
with the dual spark. The dual spark bike was smoother than my bike at its
best. It almost approached K bike smoothness. Since I've a sample size
of only 1 bike I don't know if I just happened to get a real good loaner
or of they're all that way.
Or perhaps I was so uncomfortable from having my knees in my chin due
to the seating/pegs geometry on the R that it just seemed smoother :-)
