Don't know, either, 'bout the TC?
But, the judder could be caused by insufficient oil inside the clutch? Often, the symptom is also accompanied by some noise -- like a "squawk"?
If that's suspected, running (whilst immobile) with the clutch dis-engaged and the plates, hopefully, separated my allow some more oil inside. Another remedy has been to drill more holes in the inner basket to allow more oil in.
A change in engine oil (brand/type/vis./?) may help?

Shouldn't be a design issue on a '16 model. Mebbe giving it too much beans. I've never had a clutch problem on any bike.

Agreed, the fiber plates may not have gotten a good enough initial soaking?
(may've missed it altogether..?)

It's ok normal riding, bit of judder when I accelerate hard from a start or overtake. Sometimes forget which bike I'm on. Dunno if the TC would this, do you have it?

Tyre wear is fine, I'm usually going places, not squirt & brake.

just wondering if you have the OEM handguards?
if not thoroughly secured they can rotate and put slight pressure on the levers.
I've had it on the clutch levers a couple of times, someone I know on the front brake.
