I haven't made this correlation, but i have seen where the bike warms up it seems to idle just a bit higher making it creep forward more on a flat surface then when cold.
I have found the same thing with my SE5. The idle is high and it creeps forward. I have found that putting it into Neutral will make the engine reduce it's rpm fairly quickly and it seems to fix the problem while it is running. I don't seem to have the issue when I am warmed up to 3 or 4 bars (temperature)I haven't made this correlation, but i have seen where the bike warms up it seems to idle just a bit higher making it creep forward more on a flat surface then when cold.
I read your post, and noticed it was in 2008 (!!) I'm continuing to have the accelerating from a stop with no throttle applied problem with my 2008 SE5, and have read that there's a recall on this? I was never notified. Do you know anything about it? People seem to be having clutch rollers replaced as well...would this solve it? Mine will jump to 18MPH if I don't STAND on the brake!! Scary!hi, i work at berts mega mall, a large spyder dealer and am the highest trained spyder tech there. the E message is nothing to worry about, on the manual transmission, it occurs if the driver does a slow shift and on the semi auto, sometimes it pops up going in or out of neutral because the shift drum didn't completely rotate and make contact with the sensor, if you roll it forward or back it will pop into the gear. but there is no concerns to be having if that message comes up. and for the accelerating from a stop with no throttle applied. we had our 1st one come in for that the other day. i called our can am dealer tech line and spoke with them. they told me, they are aware of this issue, but at this moment they have no diagnostic steps to be made nor do they have a fix for it. they told me they have someone looking into it right now since they know this is a huge safety issue. he advised me to let the customer take the spyder as is and just ride with caution until there is a fix for it. im sure it will be a safety recall as soon as they figure it out. if you have any other questions message me, i am very knowledgable on the spyder.
