G2 Throttle tamer.  Works a treat and eliminates about 70% of the snatchiness.( not sure if that's a word)Smile
 
Or you can save yourself a few quid and use a Stanley knife to reduce the curve on your original throttle cam.
I tried everything on my 2014 Stelvio including new maps. The Throttle tamer was the most effective.

Yes snatchiness just about describes it.  You'd think they'd put a soft action throttle cam on a tourer.  Mind you it makes it easier to blip the throttle for a down-change!

Still don't understand why people go for those plug-n-play units, when it's cheaper and better to load another Map.

Think of it this way;
You have a stone in your Boot, it's irritating you, do you;
A. Put a couple of pairs of thick socks on the affected foot to make it bearable (the plug-in thing)?
B. Remove the stone (Re-Mapping)?

Running with something that just richens the mixture can f**k up your Pistons, Rings, and Bores, the extra Fuel reduces the Oil film on the Cylinder walls.

Pete Roper (you may have heard of him?), has pictures of a set of Rings sat inside the Bore of an Engine that had one of these things fitted.
The end-gap was massive, due to the vastly increased wear rate, something like 10x what it should be.

You have to remember that when these plug and play units were in their prime, remapping was neither simple or cheap.

I think that it's great that the ECU can be re-mapped by the owner.  After skimmimg the forums, I would say that there has been a lot of hard work and support put in by eg. beetle and various others over the years, and this makes for a much more satisfying owner experience.
With most bikes a re-map is a purely financial process!
