KTM throttle probably has a longer pull and nothing to do with the bars? There are aftermarket short pull throttle options.

Already changed to quick throttle and still have to regrip... Are the ktm bars so much lower?

They are low. 79mm height. 52 sweep. 2015 it was 92mm.

I also have problems with mine, when I let off the throttle, sometimes it feels like my glove gets caught on the grip or something, and I don't fully close the throttle. It feels like a mini whiskey throttle when I come into some turns. I replaced the grips and the throttle tube and still have the problem. Last thing I can think of is the bar bend. I came from riding a kxf450 also.

I have exactly the same experience. Tried different grips and gloves with only the thinnest grip and glove helping. I do have the quick turn throttle cam on bike but I might try and aftermarket G2 verson soon. Crazy because I thought I was the only one with that problem or it was in my head but I find myself having to regrip as I come into some corners.
