feels smooth at times

Recommended Posts

hi all, 
 
Ive had the bike for few months now with about 1400 miles and its completely stock. the bike is awesome and seems to be in good condition but there are times when i apply the throttle/accelerate it feels really smooth than normal.  I'm tthinking it has something to do with fueling system?
 
any input on this? don't have much knowledge on motorcyles, thanks in advance!

Yes I notice it, it's only slight but there,
modern emission standards are so close to what
is possible and still have divability in the engine
that they are right on the edge of not running
and weather conditions affect them more than they
should, all engines are affected to some extent
take not of temp and humidity mine is at it's
worst " it's not bad but I feel it" on hot dry
days. I had the mixture richened up a bit due to
it stalling now and then and it has made it so
and difference on bad days is very difficult to detect
certainly not bad enough to worry me.

I've noticed that the bike can be a bit jerky depending on what RPM you're at when you open up the throttle again from a closed position. Learning to feather the clutch and getting a good feel for for what the bike likes/doesn't like really helped me in dealing with that.

Many injected bikes do this you don't notice as much in a car but they do it to it comes from
the fueling being totally cut off on a closed throttle while on the over run you open the throttle
and the fueling comes back on you get a jerk, I don't but it is likely the way I hold the the throttle
I ride with 2 fingers resting on the brake and my thumb round the throttle I don't grip it with my
hand sounds strange but I think it gives more control.
