Hey fellas,

On the car, I usually tap the cancel button to disengage the cruise control when coming up on slower cars.

Is there a way to disengage the cruise control on the GS without hitting the brakes or turning it off with the slider switch?

Thanks guys, ride safe!

You can twist on the throttle forward or clutch or brakes will disengage the cruise control

I usually roll off on the throttle. It's a little jerky to do that so I should probably just tap the rear brake.

I usually give a slight twist of the throttle to match my speed and then barely pull the clutch,just enough to disengage the cruise control without actually disengaging the clutch. The cruise goes off without a sudden slow down because the throttle is at the right position for the speed.

The smoothest process is to pull the clutch lever. This allows the bike to coast to a slower speed.
I never liked the abrupt compression slowing that occurs when you tap a brake or roll the throttle down. It’s too abrupt. Using the clutch to disengage the cruise will give you the smoothness you desire.

As @Pterodactyl and @dba stated, ever so light clutch pull to disengage.
I like to add a little positive energy on throttle to make it smooth.

Thanks guys. I agree a little throttle and feathering the clutch is the smoothest way.

A slight pull on clutch disengage it for me. On my KTM I have to use brake!
