I have a new 08 GW that the rpm surges on decel. With clutch in the rpm will drop to about 500 and surge back up. It is hunting for the correct rpm. If I decel with the clutch engaged there is no problem. With the clutch in it seems like the engine is trying to shut down and really impacts smoothe downshifting. Actually acceled when braking the other day.

It is at the stealership now and as expected he says this is normal and all of them do that!!!!????!!! Has anyone else had this problem?
Suggestions???

It is not normal. ask him toi let you ride another one and see if it does it, my 08 doesn't do it. Have you tried resetting the ECM unit?
From a cold start, let the bike idle, without touching the throttle, until the fans come on. Shut the key off and restart. The ECM has been reset.

My 08 in idle on a cold start surges and lags the dealer said it was normal. I have not experienced it effecting me in gear though.

The EMC might need resetting. What you do is put it in nuteral on the stand and let it idle until the fans kick on then turn it off with the key (not the kill switch) and the problem is supposed to be solved.

Yes, mine used to do that. I didn't reset the EMC but someone on this forum suggested that it would gradually disappear once the motor got a few miles on it and it did. Lyndon
