I was thinking that if it is electronically activated, there might be a module or something that could be unhooked.On the engine braking, you have to give it a little throttle. It's built into the motor and no way to turn it off.
Good to see your out enjoying the machine.
Interesting...... I think it needs more engine brake. We have very steep hills here though.My only complaint is the electronic transmission braking, when you let off the gas it is like putting on the brakes, like the new Honda cars. I personally do not like this, I would sooner it just coast. I got to find a way to unhook that, anyone know where to start?
Agreed with toodeep, when I'm coming down a not so steep hill, just barely keep a bit of throttle and it won't engage the brake.It's mechanical, built into the torque converter. What it essentially does is lock the transmission and crankshaft so it can use the compression for braking. Most want the engine braking and just a light touch of the throttle should get you going (coasting).
I think some don't care for this if most driving is on flat areas. But around here, most of my trails are mountainous, some very steep hills, so the engine brake is a blessing here. Even with that said, I would think the extra braking from coming off a fast straight run would still be handy.It's amusing to read peoples different preferences. Most people...if they complain about it say there is not enough. Yet Dick wants it to free wheel. The last thing i want it to do is free wheel.
