I have a 2003 LTE. Before I get started, I have already cut the brown wire!!
Now, much better than before the wire cut, but I still get some degree of hesitation upon acceleration. I believe it might be related to an old throttle that has been redesigned by BMW.....
Also the degree of right hand fatigue I endured in the North Carolina mountains was severe. I think my throttle is very tight as opposed to my other bikes. And there is that small hesitation that is nothing in freeway driving but was very noticable along North Carolina 28 and US 129!
Should my 2003 model already have this upgrade? How would I determine if it has?
I know this has been addressed before on this board, but I would really appreciate any knowledge anyone could give me.
A final note: My 2003 is still in warranty and will be until around Christmas this year. Is it likely BMW would take care of any of this?
Thanks in advance,

1992 K75SA, If this engine had been 4-valve instead of 2, it would be the smoothest BMW ever built!
