Bike shutters when off throttle.

I know I posted this once before but I never really got answer.

When I am in a lower gear(1st of 2nd) and off the throttle... I can feel the back end surging some. It's been doing it for a while. I've been ignoring it, or trying to. It happens when the revs are rolling down from 5000-2500. The chain tension looks perfect. Thanks.

Thanks for what???
Is this on the unicycle or the RC?
Can't say I even noticed a shutter when downshifting/decel'ing.
Do you have a PC? maybe mapping is off???

I know you said your chain tension is okay. How many miles are on the chain? Is it engine shutter (like in title) or surging?

Rear end surging is usually caused by bad Mexican food.

The Mapping was suspect, I changed the map and it still is like that. It's a surging feeling not unlike Mexican food.

Do the gauges melt in the sunlight? Speech Impediment?
