there has been a lot of talk/discussion on the tiger-explorer.com forums about the dampening grease from nye. some people speak very favorably of its results. i've been tempted to try it, but at the same time i've gotten pretty used to the throttle. 5th gear is about the only one that ever gives me any jerkiness over bumps. to me, 5th feels more sensitive at speed than other gears.
the new trophy, which shares the same engine as our bike, has a different throttle setting. this was done to help alleviate the "jerkiness" experienced by any on the tex. this is likely what KevB is referencing. i do not know if dealers can update our ecu with the trophy's settings. well, i'm sure they *could* but i'm not sure if they will, i have not asked my dealer.
