It was said that the rpm's drop to 850 also but I found today that the rpm's remain steady at 1050. Also on mine there is no light or anything else to tell me it has "kicked in". It was also said the cruise light will flash/change color/come on. Mine doesnt. The engine just goes from thumpity thumpity thumpity to thump thump thump. As soon as I give it just the slightest bit of fuel it picks back up and runs like normal til I have let up off the throttle for a second or so. It will also activate while its movin as long as its at idle. This is with the clutch out, puttin at idle. Once again, as soon as you give it the slightest amount of fuel it goes back to normal.
