Anyone having any problems with their 300 yet?
Interesting... Every time I downshift while going downhill my RPMs jump a lot. I never even have to accelerate to keep my engine going. Could you offer more details?What I thought was my not used to the RPMs I noticed may be a slight issue.. My problem was I thought I was killing it be not clutching in in time when slowing down.. Well I was messing around and noticed this..
If I am going down any fairly steep hill, which there are ALOT in my area, and say I am in 6th and need to slow down so I start to slow and downshift to say 3rd.. Then somewhat engine brake to slow down even more, at this point my RPMs are are 3000-4000 and I clutch in to downshift again, the RPM drop so low it kills the bike. It does this maybe 2 out of 10 times. I notice when it doesnt happen the RPM drops to 1000 for a brief second. Now idle is what 1500 or so, so maybe those 2 out of 10 times it dropping slightly lower than 1000 RPM and killing it..
Weirdest thing is that it ONLY happens when engine braking and going down a hill at the same time..
I can't stop riding it... Is that bad?
But seriously, the other day I had trouble getting into 1st gear. I kept kicking down but never got the "thunk". I'm pretty sure I took off in 2nd. Not sure what happened, could be new rider error.
Last night I was on Google and found that this is actually more common of a problem, this EXACT same issue happens across the board with brands and types of bikes. The problem has actually never been explained, some dealers have completely ripped the bike apart and found nothing wrong with it others have replaced parts that would would think would be totally unrelated and it has fixed the problem. The thing I noticed though it when people complained about it the problem would seems to be only temporary and it would fix it self..
Take today for example, there are several hills on my way to work. I tried my hardest to kill by bike at all different RPMs and speeds and I couldn't do it.. I tried 20 to 30 times with zero luck..
My tank of about 90% full at the moment and it is going it..Any chance it dies down hill when your low on gas? Just throwing it out there no idea why that would happen on a new bike.
