Good day all

Glad to report the XT is running well after a rebuild.

I have an odd throttle response issue.
It seems "hesitant" to pull off once the throttle pedal is pushed beyond 1/3rd of the way.
ie: push the throttle pedal slightly and she pulls off nice n slow
ie: push the throttle beyond about 1/3 of the way and its as though she wants to go, thinks about it, then goes.

I'm wondering if its just the throttle body that's a bit dirty or on its way out? Or a tuning issue?

Anyone have advice?

Good news that you done.
You got a cable throttle right?
Could be a MAF thing.
Air cleaner new?
Have you actually logged anything to see if there is anything untoward?
