After 8 years and 2 GLs I noticed on this last trip that I can cancel the CC by giving the throttle a negative twist...it then "pops" out of CC. I would have sworn you could not do that before. Do all GLs to that?
It is designed to do that, but I wouldn't make it a practice to do it very often. The reason might sound a little paranoid, but it works for me. The switch that does this neat feature is as cheap as the ones that go bad all the time on the levers. The more you use it, the sooner it will need replacement. Since it is mounted on the front of the throttle body, it's not much fun to change. It stays in the closed position all the time unless you push the throttle closed, so leave it alone and use the clutch lever or front brake lever. Those switches are much easier to change. :thumbup:
My 1992 Yamaha Venture Royale did that, too. Only, it had a neat liitle feature where you could reverse the throttle lightly and drop 5 mph without dropping the cruise the whole way out. Then when you released the throttle, it would take you back up to speed.
YamaCruise was pretty nice and probably the only step backwards I noticed when trading up to a GW.
Well, there was a nice light and mirror in the rear truck, too.
And the CB and the radio and cassette (at that time) came with the bike.
And, it told you what gear you were in and had a battery gauge.
It was also top heavy and handled like crap and they were prone to CATCHING ON FIRE !!
