Disengaging cruise smoothly
« on: June 17, 2015, 11:34:19 pm »
Hi I love the cc but not the sudden slow down lurch when disengaging by closing the throttle or using the switch. Tried holding the throttle open a little and pulling on the clutch just enough to switch out. A little Rev jump but overall much smoother. Anyone else have a technique to share ?

Mine is quite smooth with just rolling the throttle off.  It gives me normal engine brake, but that's usually what I want when I disengage the cruise.

Have you had any of the software upgrade related to the ECU done?  It may be just my imagination but I've  noticed mine is much smoother since my ECU was replaced and related engine management SW updated

+1 on the ECU update.  Mine seemed to be smoother disengaging the cruise after it was done.

Slight increase of the throttle and then tap the foot brake. Smooth disengagement...

+1 I am with Azgman on this one. Keep a little throttle on and disengage. Agree also with other comments. Better since ECU upgrade.

My cruise control performance/smoothness has declined since having the ECU replacement don, so I think I will have to visit the dealer and ask to check out he latest software available.  it has never been really smooth, but since the ECU job, it seems to hesitate for several seconds and then surge up to the desired setting.  Kind of annoying.  I do notice that if I twist the throttle lightly so the bike is accelerating very slightly an then hit resume, that it does work very smoothly.
this unit needs some tips from my Subaru cruise control system - it works very smoothly; impeccable.

I also need the audio system upgrade and front brake disc pulsation repair, and my warranty runs out this October, so I will have to plan the 700 KM trip to the dealer soon.

When i want a simple disengagement of cruise control I usually just roll forward on the throttle to turn it off. If you use your brakes to disengage it, you get the added effect of the brakes and the engine causing deceleration at the same time, which can be jolting. I suppose my method would not work too well if the engine were at a high rev, put that is typically not the case for me.

The other point of accelerating a tiny bit and then braking is also a good ploy.
