Yup...did the same thing Some.I'm not exactly sure WHAT it's actually supposed to do.I didn't feel anything either.Not that I could notice anyway.I'm not sure I understand the settings.With it off,there's NO electronic EB happening,right?So selecting anything else is supposed to add engine braking to the mix?I'll try the other setting next time...see how that feels.It may be to decrease any engine braking going on...from factory normal EB to lessening that...IDK.Is that what it's saying in that menu?You know..to smooth out the off throttle slowing effect?Make it less abrupt?

It slightly lessens the engine braking effect during closed throttle operation. I definitely noticed the on/off throttle abruptness get better when I turned on KEBC.

...think back to carburated bike where throttle blades did not completely close and left idle fuel circuit exposed. when you let off throttle it coasted somewhat. ...fast forward to FI and fly by wire with 100% ECU throttle blade control. No need for vacuum to pull idle fuel the blades can more fully close and engine stay running. The control can be tight (off) for hyper control or dampened (on) to simulate old carbs. I didnt like it off but maybe someone likes it?

Okay...thanks for that info.I suspected that.Will try all modes on next ride....as I said...from pickup to the first few rides...mine was off.When I put it on 'light'...I didn't detect any change...but maybe there really was?It's on 'light' right now.

Anyone figure this out yet? Manual is confusing.

KEBC :
"OFF = Normal
LIGHT = Smallest"

Huh?

1) What does it do in each setting.
2) Which one is the HA! (Haul Ass setting)?

AH HA! So it doesn't have anything to do w limiting power,wheelie control or braking the engine under acceleration, it's just for off-throttle? I've had it OFF, guess I'll try LIGHT and see what it feels like.

I switched mine off...it seemed like it engine braked more smoothly.I think the 'light' setting means...MORE engine braking...contrary as that sounds.Not 'less'(below normal).


'Light' as opposed to 'heavy'...I think that's what they mean.Not less than normal.Mine felt somewhat 'jerky' with it on 'light'...switching it 'off' stopped that.

I though the idea of KEBC was rather like the slipper clutch, to stop the back end snapping out of line.

Although being an LSR rider it doesn't play a very important part in my discipline.

Light setting means less engine braking. It does make a difference for sure.
