Cruise control
on: May 23, 2020, 05:40:47 AM
Got 1100km up on the XR now . Service next week. Very pleased with the bike . So much accessible fun and comfort as well as great features. Has anybody had issue with the cruise control not engaging ? IE the CC icon does not come up on the screen sometimes ? Or if it does , it wont set Without numerous ON/Offs ????
Looking forward to getting the engine cowl too which was delayed due to CV 19.

I used the cruise control today on teh F900r. It helped on a long journey. The only issue is when you disengage cruise control eg by braking there is quite a jolt in terms of the engine breaking.

I haven't used mine extensively yet, just playing around with it or using it to stretch my arms for a bit.  I haven't had any issues with it not engaging, as as for disengaging, I pull the clutch in rather than tapping the brake, then feather the clutch back to control the engine braking.

Thanks for the advice RCB I used the clutch today to cancel the cruise control - works well

Perhaps I should read the handbook more !

Definitely better to pull the clutch than the brake is also my experience

You cancel the cruise control by applying negative throttle, no need for clutch or brakes

Yes thats true you are correct , i still find it is a pretty Sharp drop off that way,  a gentle pull on the clutch you can do it more gently , that all .
Kind regards

I found out that I was resting my foot on the rear brake and that's the reason for not being able to engage cruise control :138:
