Cruise control
« on: July 10, 2017, 08:53:01 PM »
If I am teaching you to suck eggs I apologise, I found out the other day that if you close the thottle against the end stop it disengages the cruise.  Much smoother than brake or clutch.

Only got mine yesterday & discovered this straight away . Personally I think the use of the rear brake is the smoothest way to disengage.
The cruise also works in 2nd gear at low speeds , very useful for me as I suffer a numb hand quite quickly & the cruise lets me let go and wiggle my hand around .

Good to know, thanks.  Using the clutch or brake is a little abrupt on mine.

Open the throttle gently before squeezing the clutch or brake very lightly. Smooth as you like.

Nice to know. I single fingered my clutch to disengage. Smooth, but yours sound better. Will try it.

Pretty sure mine does not do that.  The friggin throttle return spring is way too strong.  When I have the cruise on, I always end up letting the throttle go back to the stop.  Relieving the throttle pressure is 90% of why I wanted cruise, but it don't work that way.  I'm still used to the old throttle lock on past bikes I guess...

Push the closed throttle against the throttle stop, then it will disengage the cruise.

I just match the throttle with the cruise and touch the back brake. I find rolling the throttle to the end stop quite abrupt myself.

Exactly. Thats what I was trying to get at. Although I dab the clutch instead of the brake
