DRZ400 surging

Not sure if this is normal or not so figured I'd ask.

When I stand up on the foot pegs while riding at a steady pace the throttle begins to surge after about 5 seconds. It does this about 5-6 times then cuts throttle to idle speed unless I sit down. Is this some kind of "dead man" sensor that cuts the throttle unless it senses weight on the saddle?

Your foot is hitting the kickstand switch. Mine does same thing. Pay attention to your foot and see if this doesn't fix your problem.

Wow, hadn't thought of that! Will look for that on my next ride.

Thanks!

Check out the DRZ section for more info specifically for your bike. Congrats and welcome!

Just had this problem too on my 2015 DRZ when standing up, thought it was just me being poor on the throttle. I'll check out the switch and my foot.
