I don't believe there is any way to "fix" the engine braking. Maybe doing some clutch work could reduce it to a degree, but it is a characteristic of 4-stroke sleds. It's just the way it is.Originally posted by snopro879
[br]I'm surprised Yamaha hasn't addressed the "engine braking" issue...unless they look at it as a benifit.
Exactly that, the compression of the engine slowing the sled down. It's pretty much the same as a car with a manual transmission. When you let off the gas with the clutch still engaged, you feel the car slow down because the compression of the engine with the throttle closed is slowing the car down. Engine braking. Same exact thing happens on a 4-stroke sled, until both clutches return to idle position, then the sled just freewheels.Originally posted by extremesummerfilms
[br]What are you guys talking about about the 'EGNINE BRAKING'?
