This may sound dumb but here it gos

when the throttle is released, the engine starts to slow the scoot down Instantly, (AKA Engine braking) there seems to be no coast. This was one of the frist things I had to get use to, it is great when coming out of high speeds but at lower speeds and even when I hit a small dip in the road that causes my hand to move a little I can feel it.
I was just woundering if this is something that will loosen up as I put on the miles??

Cruiser,

It really doesn't become less, but eventually you will notice it less. Coasting does occur at about 15 mph (off throttle) when the clutch disengages.

Cruiser,

I really like the engine braking myself and I notice it more with the J. Costa then just stock. Not a lot but some. It really comes in handy in the curves and mountains/hills, if you ride them much. The Reflex and Majesty I had didn't have near the braking as the Silver Wing does. The Majesty had more than the Reflex though. I know what you mean though about letting of the throttle just a little or hitting bumps.

If you slowly roll the the throttle back (versus just completely releasing) then it will be closer to coasting.

I have experienced what I'll call "freewheeling". If you are already lower than 15mph and are coasting, then begin a desent down a hill the bike will continue to gain speed (like neutral). To engage the engine braking at that point roll the throttle and raise the RPM and the engine braking will engage.

When I tried the 650 burgie, I found the engine braking was quite vicious compared to the S'wing, almost a bit too much!

Variety is the spice of life!
