08 throttle response

Any tips on how to smooth out the throttle response on an 08 ZX10R?
It seems a bit twitchy when I'm leaned over. Maybe it's slack in the cables? It doesn't seem to be able to "just barely" throttle. I have to be giving it gas or not. I'd like the ability to maintain minimal throttle through a turn, but just barely. Am I doing something wrong? Mapping? Different throttle tube?

how much play do you have in the throttle? all you want is about 2-4 mm

I think I've definitely got more than 2-4mm.

if it has too much slop you will get the on/off feeling from it!

Cool, I'll go out and adjust it and see if that helps.

Thanks.
