That is very interesting. A friend of mine with a Triumph Sprint is experiencing an issue where when he lets of the throttle, the revs don't die down immediately and it takes a second or 2 for the revs to drop down. I wonder if the stepper motor is causing his issue - I thought it was more likely sticking cables or something but sounds like it could be the stepper.
