Do you really mean free play or do you mean its either laggy or super sensitive. I always ride in sports mode because I don't like the delay in the other modes. But it does mean its very sensitive. I happen to like that but it may take a bit of time to get used to, or cause problems if you are gicen to sneezing fits on the bike  :001:

Hi Guys
Just a little more detail for you if I can put it across so all understand it hope so here we go, in and around town say second or third gear holding on say 20, 30 klm 40 klm s speed limit in some areas here, it's not smooth it splutters it's like you are blipping the throttle ever so slightly mind, jerky motions very small but it's there, also playing in twisters chainging down to 4Th or 3rd  I always blip throttle when changing down old school,  sometimes there's no engine rev sound at all, thats a free play issue to me I could be very wrong but thats what I feel through the throttle or lack of feel I should say it's like your pumping air if this makes sense at all guys again not all the time but also depends on how aggressive I am with the throttle blip as it doesn't seem to happen the more aggressive which is obvious . all in all it could be me not quite used to the bike and the way she is but with time maybe who knows but apart from this I love the bike
Cheers

This sounds more like a malfunction with the RBW setup, than a physical problem. No other TS riders have experienced this.

You really do need to throw this issue back at the garage. Any changes you make are likely to invalidate the warrantee.

Does this problem perform any differently when you change the rider modes?

Definitely not normal, and I also dont think anything to do with throttle free play per se. As other have said, take to Dealers. I would probably stick it on Tune ECU myself and just check that the Throttle Bodies are in balance, and also that the Twistgrip is adapted.
