Soft limiter stutters the ignition/motor and tells you thast you are close to the edge. Hard limiter shuts the motor off and tells you that's it, no more.

Thanks for that. I just recently realized there were two. Seems like hitting the hard limiter would be a nasty surprise.

One last question. When you say the hard limiter shuts the engine off, do you mean off until the rpms drop, or off until I push the start button?

Soft limiter kills two cylinders, Hard limiter both.

The soft limiter is a big concern on bikes with Nitrous and Turbo bikes. Pulling the fuel to two cylinders can mean disaster.

It will come back when the rpm drops.
