I changed mine back to the original because the snatchiness improvement was minimal and I found that I had to crank the throttle over further to go full throttle, so I had to reposition my hand everytime I intended to go for a burst of full throttle. Awkward for me.
Ditto on that. Actually may consider going to a more aggressive throttle tube.

You need to set the TPS and take the slack out of the throttle cables at the same time to get the full benefit out of the Katana throttle tube.

I've got the Katana tube on a '16. Hardly any change I could notice. The bike has excessive power, so I have to watch it, and I live with that.

I think the new tube has a less aggressive tip-in off idle. I used to stall the bike more than I wanted to with the original tube. It was either no gas or too much. I don't think I've stalled the bike once since the new tube went in.

After that initial off-idle turn of the tube, I'm not sure there's much difference. In fact, if you compare the cam profile of the 2 tubes, that's about the only difference, the initial part.
