Low-RPM Assist - UGH!

I find the assist to be a total distraction and has misled me to stall the engine on several occasions. Any ideas on how to disconnect the feature?

Only way to "disconnect" is your right hand. Just give it a little more throttle.

On a general note, make sure your TP sensor is adjusted correctly:

That's odd, mine works the charm.

Maybe there is something wrong with yours? I've been riding for 47 years and I don't even notice it's there under normal riding. I did test mine out a couple of times just for the fun of it and it's definitely there and does the job.

No problems with mine, either. As a newbie, it's a great feature that has kept me from stalling out many times. Maybe get yours checked out?? Especially if you are still under warranty.

This thread confuses me. If you don't like the assist, just ignore it. It has no effect unless you intentionally engage it. I remember reading a previous post from a member that didn't even know he had it.

I just don't see how it can cause a stall.... It only ASSISTS in keeping YOU from stalling the bike.

It's passive. While easy to ignore, it's not something I actually engage. As the clutch lever begins to release to engage the clutch, the rpm's increase. Personally, I really like the feature. It's great assistance starting and holding the bike on an incline. I enjoy it most just finessing the bike around in the shop, duck-walking it and turning it around.

If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space.

I hate it too. It's made me think I was applying throttle when I wasn't, and it does not provide enough throttle alone to prevent stalling. I mostly just find the rpm fluctuations it causes annoying.
