OK I'll bite, why would you even want to do this. 4K with a load is fine, but sitting still??????????

Have you removed, cleaned, and re-attached the battery terminal wires yet? That's always the first thing to do on these since either a low, bad, or bad connection at the battery will cause all kinds of havoc with the ECM on these bikes. Even relatively new batteries can go bad unexpectedly. Just happened a month or so ago to someone else on the forum.

Hi Steve, the bike will pull fine up to red line when you're riding though right?

You talking about this?

I think all 2011 and up do the same thing. I believe there is a rev limiter with out a load on the bike. Mine only goes up to 2500. I only know because of a rally game. Thats why I don't enter loudest pipe contests. It's really not good for your motor reving without a load.

No idea MBX, but my 2013 does it as well. It seems to hit a rev limiter as suggested.
Same for me, I didn't check the max rpm while in neutral though.
I was surprised at the beginning but I understood it was meant to keep the engine safe.

If you're limited at 4000 rpm while riding, then you have a problem. I'm pretty sure you're not.

Revving to the max with no load is how Aussie's make vehicles for their movies. That's why it's called "Mad Max".:D
Must say I've never 'free revved' mine.....yet
Ill give it a go when shes warmed up properly.

Either theres no nuetral limiter on 2010 bikes or maybe my PCV and tune over rides it
