Recently purchase a new 2013 Voyager. I only have 70 miles on it but haven't noticed a throttle lag. When does this seem to occur? Does everyone with this bike have it?

Duplicate post somehow. Sorry.

Yes... it's a side-effect of the fly-by-wire throttle. Most of us have either bought grips modified by Ray (see the "Throttle modification" thread with 690+ posts in it) or a machined part from Dave Shellenberger (on Ebay)... or like I've done, just modified the throttle myself with a piece of PVC pipe, some superglue, and a Dremel. (Google "quick turn throttle mod").

Thanks Peg. At least it doesn't sound serious.

When you crank the throttle open full throttle around 35mph in 4th you will notice it.

Having properly adjusted throttle cables will help some. RacnRay has a good thread on how to adjust the cables.

Thanks. I've seen threads mentioning RacnRay's throttle mod. I may be interested in that if I notice the problem too often.
