Thottle surge
« on: November 20, 2018, 02:59:11 AM »
As anyone had problems with a throttle on a 2013 Explorer? Very touchy and will surge quite easily. Cheers Doug.

Is this your first ride by wire bike?  It takes some getting used to.
Ride safe, and ride often!

What he said.
Took a couple weeks to get used to it and hasn't been a problem for 6 years now.

Very often throttle response will improve after the adaption reset procedure.
Start the bike from cold, let it idle and do not touch the throttle and no electrical switching. When the cooling fan cuts  in , let it idle for 12 more minutes. Shut it off. The adaptation will now be reset..
Good luck.

There is an ECU update for the first generation TEX, which I believe was a recall. Check with a dealer to see if your bike got the update.

The ECU recall was for both the first generation Explorer and Trophy. At the time I owned both a 2013 TEX and a 2014 Trophy. Both got replacement ECU's which were different in hardware and had more calculating power. This provided better data processing and solved the reason for the recall which was stalling.
