they all tick over slightly fast when cold as most bikes do , nothing to do with the exhausts , like an automatic choke on a car

Bring back the good old choke! :008: My problem is, the exhaust is pretty loud and  with close neighbors, I'm ready for the off pretty quick. :092: Still, nice to know it's not just me but it does seem to race more than bikes I've had before.

I let mine warm up to 40 degrees before riding off by which time the engine as at normal idle.

My 2018 also 'races' which has nearly caught me out a couple of times when I manoeuvre in a tight space before fully warming up! With a cat fitted I don't suppose it makes any difference what end can you put on and is simply the nature of the bike. Just wait until it is warmed up before moving off I guess.

Z1000SX - General Discussion / Pro-Race exhaust issue.
« Last post by Swansea Jack on Yesterday at 06:48:53 PM »
 Had these slip-ons on my bike for a few hundred miles now - with  small baffles to increase low end torque and reduce noise a bit:

Sounds and runs great when warmed up but engine 'races' very fast for first few minutes - when pulling from cold you hardly need throttle at all! I can reduce the idle speed but that would not be right once the bike has warmed up. Anyone else find this with the Pro-Race? I know the bikes are set up to increase the idling speed whatever the exhaust  but it is a bit scary scary having the bike almost ride itself  :005: I commented to the technician that the engine 'raced' when cold  (and that was with the stock exhaust) , but he said the bike was fine and it was normal. Any thoughts?

That’s pretty poor, did they ever cover the damage to the bike?
