Motor Hiccup

I have been experiencing a very odd issue with my Manual. Starting has not given me any issues thus far.

When I am slowing down or "blip" the throttle in an effort to match revs on the downshift, it will, what sounds like a backfire through the air box, hiccup and cut the motor out but not shut it down. Two days ago I was at a stop sign and went to "blip" and it shut completely down. I restarted it and took off. It does not matter the temp and it is not replicated easily in my opinion. It is very random.



Has anyone else experienced or been experiencing this phenomenon?

Hi,
I'm noticing this also. Only once went completely off.
Bike now with 1500km. One time talked with the mechanic from Honda and he told
me that might have something to do with the solenoid...
Will keep an eye on that in the next months. If by the end of summer that thing still happens will report that to the dealer for a proper check.

It's a force of habit to blip coming from the street bike world. It sounds like she's running too lean. It's annoying when you expect the bike to do one thing and it doesn't respond the way you intend it to. Considering it only has 1100 miles on it, it actually irritates me.

there is another thread about occasional stalls on the DCT ATs whereas in the NC world a stall is almost unheard of. I wonder if it could be connected to this occasional backfire issue.

Is this the same for changing down the gear box through all gears True ad? no blipping required?

The backfire through the airbox used to happen on my Triumph Explorer when new, but as an issue it gradually disappeared with mileage . It never actually stalled but just popped back as described above. Leanness is one cause among others, but if it is random and gradually disappearing it would not bother me.

Mine used to do the same as well as being hard to start, i simply disconnected the battery and reset everything and I've not had one single backfire since nor has the hard start come back.
