You have to have the throttle closed to use the auto-blip clutchless downshift feature.
Ya? The reviews were saying it had to be closed. Good to know
Now this I do not know, as I only have 800 miles on the bike and I am strictly following break in procedures... Will find out soon enough though.So does it work above 10K or were the reviews wrong in that aspect too?
I always thought blipping meant giving it a little bit of throttle to ease downshifts and match engine and wheel speeds closer. That's how it's translated in the 1299, no? Auto-blip means it automatically "blips" the throttle to increase revs to match engine and wheel speeds on downshifts.

Im only referring to downshifting here. Upshifts are different in that the DQS cuts the throttle to allow for a clutchless up shift.
In the 7K to 8K range that I am now keeping it to during this stage of the break in period, I am getting the auto-blip with open throttle. The sensation and sound are much the same as an F1 transmission downshifts in the Ferraris I have driven. This is as much as I can now confirm.So now that we understand blipping, does the throttle have to be closed for auto-blip, or...?
Wouldn't a closed throttle be even more reason for a good 'blip' on the downshift ??
