what is going on with my bike

alright guys here it is my bike always feels like its pushing against something.is it normal when you shift up and if you dont hit the throttle right away to feel like you downshifted or hit the front breaks . if i ride in a higher gear then i should be and let off the throttle the front end dives . i just doesnt seem right . i brought it to the dealership and they say its normal i let me a couple people ride my bike to see if it felt wierd and they agree with me . i can hear my front break alot its pretty loud . is there anything besides a bent rotor that would cause this . its been drivng me nuts since about 600 miles im at 1300 now . bike is a 2005 so do you think the dealer just didnt want to cover it under warrenty or is this normal .

If I'm not on the throttle, the engine breaking will happen. These bikes dont come with an overdrive gear, its supposed to do this, it allows the bike to pull hard at lower rpms.

well, these things tend to have ALOT more engine brake than a car. i figured i'd just ask to see if it was your first.

even after up shifting, if your not barely above idle, it will engine brake. ever had it above 10k and just close the throttle? it'll almost toss you over the bars.

Did you other bikes have a slipper clutch? If so the slipper clutch will not engine break as hard as your RR.

Good luck

Only things to check here are that your throttle cable freeplay isn't too big and that your idle speed isn't too low.

Bikes don't coast like cars. The RR has 600cc of 12:1 compression to slow down 170kgs of vehicle.

Idle speed has nothing to do with this. If he is crusin at say 50 in second as soon as he shifts and lets go of that clutch it will jump to like 7k. And if his clutch is not engaged then idle speed still doesnt matter because the engine is not driving the rear wheel at that monent.

If he's cruising at 50mph in 5th that's about 5500rpm. Pull the clutch and change up, he'll lose 5-10mph straight away and revs will be below 4000. From 4000 down to idle with no throttle will take about 1 second. The bike will definately dive and then start to splutter if idle speed is too much lower than 1500.

Still, my guess is that everything is ok.

No doubt the bike will dive, but STILL the idle speed has nothing to do with this. Sputtering was not a concern of his so that can be thrown out. And the engine idle speed has nothing to do with slowing down, diving, handling, etc when the clutch is pulled in. When the clutch is pulled in his idle could be 1,500 or 10,000 and it would not make a difference to the bike
