When you had it open you should have sprayed some Sea Foam fogger in it. The guys in the UK are having issues with these seizing. Next time I pull the rear tire I will spray it down with Sea Foam fogger.
No way of defeating it and it is a very costly fix.
Every time I have the GS-911 out I make it activate it so I can hear it well.
I wondered about that but worried that anything 100% petroleum based will just burn to a charred incrustation actually making the problem worse. Maybe one of the high temp Never-Seez products would be better as it at least leaves a metal paste film. Wonder if the regional nature of the fuel in the UK is part of the issue as I haven't read so much about it here. Mine was free moving so I decided not to "fix" it.
I guess I would not want to defeat it as I think it helps quiet the bike at steady cruise. And as I said before you hear the butterfly close about 20-30 seconds after power down. I'll just be sure to listen for a change in the sound indicating it is getting hung up.
