Over revving
« on: November 08, 2019, 07:15:25 PM »
Evening. I am after some advice if poss. I bought my second model a few months ago and really pleased with it.
The only thing is when I slow down and close the throttle it tends to over rev at about 1500 rpm for a couple of seconds before returning to tick over speed of 1200.
Has anyone else noticed this? This is a 2019 model. My 2014 model never did this.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Quite normal, my 2018 does the same.  I presume it's an anti-stall set up on the ECU - nothing to worry about.

Likewise, mine (2019) does exactly the same.

I think I read somewhere that it's something to do with down shifting and the clutch?  I.e. it's meant to do it.

I've noticed that when I'm slowing down and downshifting, the bike seems to hold the revs. Not sure I've worked out the exact behaviour yet but on several occasions, once I shift from 4th to 3rd it stops doing it.
Maybe it's trying to be helpful but it's a feature I could happily do without.

it's a common feature of modern vehicles in general - we have a 2019 Fiesta ST and when idling in neutral and you then press the clutch pedal the revs jump up in preparation for moving off, all without touching the accelerator  - it's the computer age!

Yes, these wretched computers are ruining everything! I enjoy the art of rev-matching to achieve smoother downshifts and what happens: the bike's doing it for me.  :003:
At least my 2019 model doesn't have a quick shifter so I still need to pull the clutch in when changing gear.

On my 2017 model, on the rare occasions that I  come to a halt in a high gear like 4th, I have wondered why the idle speed is raised. But then I remember that it always does that and the revs drop when you knock it down to 2nd or 1st. I think it's trying to recognise that you never change into / out of higher gears with low revs so this will make the change smoother if you don't make an effort to match the engine speed to roadspeed and gear?
