My bike does this.

When my bike is cold and I let off the throttle it does the Humpty dance (jerking forward and back). I'm pretty sure this is normal but I just thought I'd check since my last bike never did this.

Here's some video of what my bike does.

Audio kicks in after 10seconds.

There was a serious question somewhere among all that.

No one feels their bike jerking when cold after letting off the throttle?

If it's in the 50's I get it.

All stock bike. I only notice it when letting off the throttle compleatly while still in gear. If I pull the clutch it's not there.

I feel it at all RPM's. It starts to fade as the motor warms up.

My 500 with carbs would have some throttle responce lag, but my 919 will accel just fine.

When my bike is up to temp it's fine. That makes me think nothing is wrong with it.

I have 750 miles

did it cross your mind that bike not being up to temp, that it's still on a "high" idle & not going to decel as same as when it is up to temp & no longer on a "high" idle????
...besides at 750 mis., the thing isn't even broken in yet.

Yes it did cross my mind. I just wanted to see if it was typical among 9ers.

My knob is pushed in so it's not that.

Thanks for the input.

My RC does the same thing when it's not fully warmed up... typical w/ any bike.

warm it up a bit, start it then take your time putting on your gear. Not that its gonna hurt anything if you take it easy on it when its cold, but it never hurts to let it warm up a min or two anywho
