    Obviously it would not be a simple job, (for me) though there are people on the mountain with the IT skills to help if I went ahead.

    I see where you´re coming from Engenia, and I´m still at the ¨wondering ¨ stage, however there are some good reasons for considering a carburettor.
    It seems that the Imperiale has a general problem...

    EFI versus Carb.

    The Benelli Imperiale seems to be getting a reputation for jerking on and off the throttle.
    Also the idling revs are set electronically at 1500, which I find a bit too fast. Using the idle adjuster...

    That is interesting, thank you. I´ve no desire to compromise the throttle action to compensate for a badly routed cable, so I´ll see what improvement is possible.

    There´s at least one Imperiale in Spain John, tootling around the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. I bought it in Granada at a dealer´s full of big expensive Triumphs which I doubt if he will sell in...

    Why the slack ?

    The handbook for my Imperiale specifies a good deal of slack in the throttle cable, which I find unpleasant. Can anyone tell me why this slack needs to be there ?
    It is particularly awkward because...

    Make sure the clutch is adjusted as per the manual, there should be a very small amount of slack in the cable at the lever, but if there´s too much, the clutch will not disengage completely.

    Lambda sensors

    I have a Benelli Imperiale 400, and I´m finding the throttle response a little awkward. It shows up mostly on bends, which are many and various here in the mountains.
    Approaching a bend I usually...

    No, the throttle doesn´t move until the slack is taken up. There´s a decent return spring on the operating cam.

    Sloppy twistgrip.

    The twistgrip on my new Benelli Imperiale 400 not only slides laterally between the body and the bar-end weight, but needs to be rotated about 30 degrees before it begins to operate. This rather...

    I collected the Imperiale from Jmoto, and managed to extricate myself, and the bike, from the seething maelstrom which is Granada.
