Hi all

Does other peoples throttle, when you close it after revving, go down to 1500 then up to 2000 then back down to 1500 again, when the clutch is pulled in. It doesn't happen all the time but I notice more now that I am running in race mode. I have phoned my dealer who said it is could be the ECU program doing it to stop stalling or maybe the FBW positioning itself ??

Any thoughts peeps ? :confused:

Are you talking about revving the bike at standstill? If so then, yeah its normal. It's just the V-Twin engine characteristic.

If your talking about when you pull the clutch in while slowing down to a stop at a set of lights and how the bike revs higher until you come to a complete stop, to which the revs drop back to 1500rpm. Then that too is normal and i believe its the electronics doing that to ensure the bike doesn't stall. Don't quote me on that as the electronics are advanced on this bike. But its a similar feature in the BMW cars.

Mine has the latest software updates as of Jan 18th (dealer actually said another update was released that day) when I purchased my 899. I gotta say, I don't notice that one mine. I have about 2,800 miles on her now. When the engine is cold (~110F) and I'm first leaving my house, it does this, but only until fully warmed up a few blocks later. When my bike is at full operating temp, it does not. When I give it a quick rev it simply settles down to idle speed like old school. This is in neutral with the clutch out, or stopped in gear with the clutch in.

Can someone provide exact conditions for me to try and replicate this? Ambient air temp, engine temp, etc. I'm very curious now.
