Very touchy throttle

So when I got the bike it had a strange map in it that was supposedly done by a place near Atlanta but they will not claim it. I didn't trust the map so I installed one from rc51.info and its much smoother but the on/off throttle response is so finicky that when I go over railroad tracks or bad bumps any movement in my had causes lurching. Is there a tps on the bike and if so how do I tweak it?

You can't adjust the TPS on an RC51.
They're set at the factory, with no instructions on how to adjust it.

That's not to say it hasn't been tried. It's just you'll be flying blind if you attempt it.

Same here. Properly adjust the throttle play (about 1/8 inch I believe) helps a bit but not by much....

That's what happens with large displacement V-Twins that require heavy flywheels to keep them spinning over...
