Why does engine die when the throttle shuts?
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.
