Why does en­gine die when the throt­tle shuts?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garage -

If I ac­cel­er­ate hard on my Honda CBR1000RR-6, and then snap the throt­tle shut, the en­gine dies. James Low­ings, Cam­bridge

An­swered by Scott Bul­lett, Doble Mo­tor­cy­cles Many bikes have anti-bank sen­sors to stop fuel be­ing pumped into the en­gine if it’s fallen on its side. This model-year of Blade uses a pen­du­lum damped by oil that’s wired up to the ECU and is bolted in­side the fair­ing. If it’s come loose it’ll al­low the pen­du­lum to swing when it shouldn’t, cut­ting the fuel.
