Hi All, Recently got my first multistrada. Getting to grips with it but struggling with the issue of it bogging down a bit on pull-away. From the lights it's hit and miss whether it shoots off like a scalded cat or lumbers off like a pregnant rhino. When I was riding some stupidly tight and steep roads in the back-lanes of Wales with all the luggage on the bike it was really hard work to make hill starts. When on low revs using engine braking in second down the same mountain roads, on a couple of occasions when I blipped down to first it would stall. Real slow riding is a bit of a nightmare as you never know if it is going to go or stumble off of a closed or almost closed throttle so end up with slipping clutch and dragging rear which is not ideal. I've read various posts about exhaust flaps, TPS set-up, clutch switches, software updates, etc but can't really find any examples of anyone who has had the problem and significantly fixed it apart from one guy who had new throttle bodies fitted. So.… 2013 bike. 20k miles on it. Regularly serviced so hopefully decent plugs etc. Just had new tyres fitted so had the opportunity to look up the exhaust with the silencers removed and can see the flap has been removed. Still go the spindle but no flap. There's a little bit of free play in the throttle. I could adjust that out on the barrel adjusters but if they get out of sync, could that cause some of this sort of problem? Any way to test the two cables are correct? Is it one per TB or is one an on and one an off? Looking to get it booked in to get TPS checked out in case it's that. Many posts point towards the clutch switch. Has anyone disconnected this and found the responsiveness comes back? Appreciate this means you can't use the starter when in gear but I could live with that. Any other issues with taking the clutch switch out of the loop. Seems more sensible to default it open rather than closed. Anyone fixed this without resorting to power commanders and massively expensive upgrades/replacements? Or is it just a characteristic I need to learn to ride around?
