Hello everybody, I am curious if somebody else noticed this and if it's normal. Every time I switch off the bike the acceleration handle gets pulled a little bit, you can see what I'm talking about here. Did anybody else experience this, is this normal ?

Thank you for your time

Hey, did you check it ? Does it do the same thing ?
I know with my bike when I went to a wider handle bar depending on the position makes my front brake have a difference in resistance due to slack or tight brake cable possibly the same scenario with your throttle cable. Might be getting caught up or out of adjustment

I didn't change the handle bar, I eventually took it to the dealer and told them about it, they had a look, said it was weird but couldn't find anything wrong, the cable is fine, the slack is fine and it only gets pulled when in lock position, if the hadle bars are straight and I turn it off it doesn't do it.

If it’s what I’m thinking, it’s accompanied by a electronic buzzing sound. Mine does the same. As the post before my said, I believe it calibrates the throttle position every time the bike is turned off.

I'd contact Kawasaki to confirm this..just to be sure lol.

Odd that they didnt seem to mention this in the manual either!
