OK, here's the issue. At slow speeds, around 35 to 40 mph in 3rd gear, when I let off the throttle to slow just one to two mph it feels like the throttle bodies are shutting closed. The bike pitches foward enough to slam my passenge into me. The bike also does not do this when it is cold. Once it warms up the lurching starts. I thought it might be throttle control, but I am only moving the throttle mear millimeters. The dealer says its the slipper clutch. But my understanding of the slipper clutch is that it kicks in when down shifting from higher speeds. Not letting off the throttle. Is that correct? Has anyone else dealt with the lurching? I love the bike, but this makes it very distracting to ride. Thanks for any help.
