Weird Engine Braking
Hello All! First time posting here, sorry if it's noobish!
I tried searching and either there isn't anything on this subject or I don't know the proper terms.
Lately I've been riding my '99 K1200RS (around 35k miles) to work and around 70MPH (or at least when it's most noticeable) it feels like it's slightly engine braking every 4-5 seconds and then goes back to what I had the throttle at. It feels like I let off the throttle slightly for about a second or two and then go back to where I have the throttle set. It doesn't do this all the time, but it feels like its a lot lately. The morning drive in today it was pretty much nonstop for the whole time I was on the interstate doing 70. The RPM's drop slightly and the MPH drops around 1-2 each time. It's very strange. I tried to feel it going 40-50MPH, but either it doesn't do it then or it's not as strong.
Any ideas on why this might be happening?
