Default Clutch doesn't cancel cruise

According to owners manual the cruise control should cancel when the clutch lever is pulled. Has anyone experienced this not working ? Mine just keeps revving kind of unnerving when you need to drop a gear real quick. 2013 cct

This came up a couple years ago too so I went out and tried it on mine. Mine does turn off the cruise as the manual says. That said, you have to pull the lever in all the way and it will rev a good bit if you play around with it. If I need to drop a gear as you put it, I simply use the front brake to turn off the cruise. On mine, I barely have to move the lever to disengage cruise. I will admit that I've not found myself in a situation where I needed to drop a gear real quick while running on cruise. I never use cruise in heavy traffic or real curvy roads.

Thanks that is the method I have been using also. I haven't used the cruise very much with this bike just playing with it to try and get used to it and how it works. Still haven't learned all the switches without looking down. My Venture had a cancel button just above the starter button which was so convenient.

What Creek said.

I tried the clutch a couple of times, just for yuks. I found that the revs go waaaay up if I did that (although disengaging the cruise, too), and so, like Creek, just tap the brake lever to turn it off. Then, if I want to cruise the same speed in a different gear, I'll shift normally (after the brake-tap-cruise-off), and just hit resume.

Cheers,

Why not just cancel by rolling off the throttle and shift as normal? Tapping the break obviously cancels the cruise as well, and I've noticed that my clutch will cancel but it still revs pretty good.

As I say -- with my XCT, anyway -- I tried that a couple of times, and in the clutch disengagement period the revs went much higher than I'd think they should go... frighteningly so. Maybe if I shifted quickly, it wouldn't matter.

Actually, speaking for myself, I was just sort of experimenting, anyway. I can't recall ever wanting to change gears with the cruise on, and keep the cruise on. I mean, if you have the cruise on and want to change gears, it's usually -- almost always? always? -- because something's happening that will also make you want to turn the cruise off, too, at least for a brief time.

Cheers,

If you just roll off the throttle you leave the cruse cord stretched and before you know it you'll have slack in the cruse cable

Just a guess but I would say the clutch switch probably isn't activated until the lever is just about all the way in. Other than that switch the 'puter has no way to know that you've pulled the lever in so in the time it takes you to get it through the friction zone the motor is allowed to more or less spin unloaded causing the additional revs. Just for giggles I may try yanking mine in fast versus my normal pull and see what kind of difference it makes.
