engine braking.. or not

HI All,

What's the deal with not having engine braking on Brutale 910? Can this be improved with power commander?

my concern is that now, I have to learn control wheelies with rear brake, as opposed to just my right hand...


Does the cituation improve at higher RPM?


Thanks!

Be glad you dont have to have a slipper clutch. If you want to use more engine braking, hit a lower gear. I like to hear her scream any way.

Get used to it. There is very little engine braking on the Brutale. I don't know about the perceptions of other people, but trust your own. I have ridden alot of bikes and I suspect you have as well. It has nothing to do with what rpm you're riding at, and it won't change at higher rpms. It is because the Brutale has one of the lightest flywheel of any stock bike available.

it is something that one must get become accustom.
if you regularly ride more than 1 bike, i'm sure that the brutale will have the LEAST engine braking of the bunch...
adapt and you'll be fine

When I did my IAMs test with a policeman following me he could not believe how much engine braking I had. In fact he thought my brake light had stopped working. He could not use his engine to stop like I was. I told him I had a switch on the handle bars to turn the light off!!! Actually I just used the revs!

He was on a blackbird.

Engine braking will increase as your engine speed increases.

Lighter flywheels also increase engine braking. Big heavy flywheels store energy and once spinning, want to stay spinning. I think the brute has alot of engine braking.
