Throttle let-off bogs bike down
Bought my 2011 for moving up from a Honda Rebel. The guy took really good care of it, but did all the service himself AND skipped what he could not do. So, what did not get done was the vacuum sync at 7500 miles (now has 11,000). What it does is, if you let off completely on the throttle it is like what I imagine and engine brake on a truck feels like. It lower gears (1+2) it almost throws me forward a little. It is not too bad in higher gears and almost makes coming to a stop sign easier. My ride has the 44t sprocket in back to make things smoother (by prev owner-only he did it to “get the speedometer accurate”). I raised the idle a little and took the slack out of the throttle cable. All this helped to some degree. I have read the thread about the tubing between the two throttle bodies smoothing out the low end and will do that at some point. Do you think that and the synch of the vacuum will eliminate this bogging down? It is a pain if you are in a corner and want to let off a little and bogs down too far. I am working on getting my speed and rpm’s (a little higher) right as I approach the corner, but that is a work in progress. I do plan to go to the dealer for an 11.5K service in the next few weeks and will have the sync done then. Do you think they will put that tubing in place if I ask? Sorry, don’t have the mechanical skills to do that myself. Thanks for any words of advice.
Forty years away from 2 wheel fun. Sure is great to be back smelling the roses!!!
