HOME and how to join Forum Open Area General Scott topics setting a tick overspeed Re: Re: setting a tick overspeed


Oh the temptation of word association!
But I wont.
However, I am rather interested in this topic as I have always set all my engines to “tick over”, it’s so much easier to set pumps etc when not having one hand or foot trying to keep a steady engine speed.
This has included at least 6 2t engined bikes of various nationalities.
So far the least of my Scott woes has been any type of histrionics on a trailing throttle, but I have added the extra weight to the flywheel.
Neither do I suffer from the vibration afflicting a previous poster, however, at “tick over” I do notice a sort of rocking caused by the unbalanced nature of the engine.
Having an engine shut down without some input from the throttle may be fine for racing, but not the rest of the time.
