Nope. Nothing there, sorry... The throttle does just what I want,
nothing more, nothing less... It's my first fuel injection bike, I
heard a lot about 'on/off' effects, but nothing to that end either. It
just stays where it is, could be a couple of Bings doing the work down

A mere matter of taste :-)

Oh yes, I will. I'm adjusting it already, ordered the bar raisers and
the mechanic throttle friction control from Wunderlich today

Little secret: these things work on Airheads as well.

Actually, I bought it new in April. The reason I bought the V is that
I like to get off the bike, change my biking boots for hiking boots,
and walk. 4 AA batteries, flip the screen 90 degrees, and you have an
excellent hiking GPS.

I now have a RAM mount attached to one of the handlebar bolts, works
like a charm.
