Throttle "Sticking" when engine temp is high

I have an issue where when my engine temp is above 5 or 6 bars (riding urban traffic while commuting), the throttle starts to get "sticky".

By that I mean when I roll off the engine runs fast for a second or two before starting to slow down. Very disconcerting in traffic and just generally disturbing.

Has anyone else experienced this? Any thoughts or suggestions on how to deal with it? I mentioned it to the dealer, but they weren't able to replicate the problem so they haven't been able to do anything yet.

Just to clarify, the throttle GRIP is not sticking. The grip snaps back. It seems to be a ride-by-wire issue - I think it's the ECU which is keeping the throttle open for some reason I can't understand.

Thanks for the suggestion!

Why would the engine braking setting change only when the bike gets hot? My settings have been fixed for a long time, I never change them. Throttle snaps back fine for 80% of my ride home, then just near the end it starts doing this, and only on hot days with traffic when the engine temp gets up to 6 bars. I don't think it's the engine braking setting changing, but I don't know so it could be.

Hi Kag,

Bike has 8000km, and it's been happening for about 4 weeks. Only happens when the engine temp gets high.

Thanks!

Are you revving above 4000RPM or not (in town is an habit)
I suggest to add water wetter to improve to exchange heat at the head.
It's a racing bike, not a cruising bike

Got the bike back, issue seem to be sorted, but I have only put 10 miles on it since and it normally occurs on longer rides. Dealership has not disclosed what was done to remedy. I have to say I am really dissatisfied with this bike so far.
