i heard it was just some little sensor thing that when doing slow turns it bumps the revs up a bit to prevent stalling.

Yeah I have the same problem. It's the rack bolts. I tightened them once and it went away but it has come back and I havent had a chance to tighten them again.

From factory they had loctite compound so they wouldn't come loose, but if your rack has ever been changed, theres a good chance that they didn't use loctite when reinstalling the reco rack.

That's my understanding of it anyway.
