M8 Off-idle Hesitation on Throttle Blip

bought an '18 FLTRX beginning of May and have question about "blipping" the throttle.
on my '16 RGS it was not an issue, even after installing aftermarket slip-ons.
it actually ran better after installing the slip-ons and seemed to "learn" a new map.

is this something the dealer can re-flash or am i gonna have to by an aftermarket fuel management device?
is the ECM "learning" how i drive and re-mapping to compensate?

who is gonna win the Isle of Man TT race?

it's due for the 1st service so i guess i'll wait and see what line of crap the service mgr. at the stealership will lay down.

or maybe they'll shoot straight and true.

I've never blipped the throttle off idle so I can't tell you if there is a hesitation. Never understood blipping the throttle at idle. Blipping while downshifting yes, but never off idle.

Throttle by wire so maybe you are just too quick for the system to keep up?

thanks for your response!
there is a section of road that is an uphill right hand turn where i have to feather the clutch and give it throttle to make it up the hill, and then cut the throttle while making the relatively sharp right hand turn.
the hesitation makes the bike jerk momentarily until i can get some speed.
i've never experienced that with a carb'd bike.
it is a little unsettling to have the bike jerk like that in the middle of a turn.

kinda reminds me of a '79 ironhead sportster i used to have that ran lean lol
