Scrambler questions

Hi folks , I recently bought a 2015 two tone scrambler. I love the bike. I have a couple of questions on how it rides. When travelling at a constant speed of 30mph it feels like it is skipping or has a spark plug miss. I would assume if it did the check engine light would be on. It feels like the power is not constant. I did have the dealer load the latest tune on it. The other question has to do with the throttle. It seems to be on or off right off the stop, to the point where I have to slip the clutch on slow speed turns in 2nd year. Both of the concerns are exaggerated when riding two up. Extremely hard to be smooth and not bang helmets. The only way around it is to ride aggressively which is fine but would be nice to go slow too. Maybe someone knows of an efi glitch or patch? Other than that I really enjoy how easy it is to maneuver. It is light years ahead of previous bike a Kz1000 in turning. Not so much in a straight line. Any information would be welcome . I'm still getting to know the bike and try and get on it whenever I can. Currently has 4400 miles. Thanks in advance .

snatchy throttle is the 1st thing I fixed on my 2014.
In my case removed the Air Injection, and O2 sensors.
Blocked the holes and used TuneECU / TTP to remap and kill any error lights.
In my case this made a massive improvement and transformed to a smooth ride.

Worth a try for not a lot of money.

Thanks for the info. I'll have to research tuneECU. Not sure what it is or how to use it. Anyone else have that skipping or missing sensation when riding? Maybe it's the 270 firing order?

What gear are you in at 30mph when this occurs?

Hi. I also have a 2015 Scrambler and I have noticed the same problem as the OP. Is there anything else that can be done to smooth it out at 3000 RPM beside using the tuner? I have noticed the engine runs a little better when I use the non-ethernal fuel.

Thank you.

I feell the same twitching at low speeds as OP. And I have instaled TTP tune. So it does not change when tune installed. It's probably a character of 270 crank firing, but it's annoying sometimes.
