Derek, it WILL freewheel when your speed drops below 15 mph. Just apply a little throttle and it will re-engage.

PostSubject: Coasting   can someone answer this  I_icon_minitimeWed Sep 05, 2012 9:36 pm

The one problem I had ridding with BIG bikes for 480 miles was the coasting, going around turns down hill. I had to use the breaks more than I liked, but I still managed to stay in front of 90 percent of them, kick a** bounce
The only draw back I have found, so far after 23000 miles.

Actually, it will freewheel any time the RPMs drop below ~2000 RPMs.

So you could be in freewheel while coasting lickety-split down a long hill. And with no engine braking during that time your brakes are gonna be s'moke'n.

But as BillC says, [under normal situations] just apply more throttle and the clutch will re-engage.
