    Not sure if any of U Racers experience "Drive Line Lash" When on/off throttle it isnt a smooth engagement.
    We were BS ing in the pits on the weekend & someone brought it up. My Duc has it. It is not as pronounced as some of my other bikes. But it is still there. Maybe its just my lack of control!
    I heard that some of the guys increase ther throttle idle to eliminate some of this problem.

    Anyone else with some input on this?
    What rpm would be used if increasing the idle?

    TIA

    John,
    How much of that is the chain?

    I used to set my zx6 to around 2500 rpm. If I could do the same with the Honda I would. Now I'm assuming the lash you speak of is more of an off/on throttle abruptness? It certainly helped with the slower corners for me anyway.

    Not much Joe. I dont run the chain too loose. I think that higher idle would work well with that. BUT
    I have other issues now. I was trying to adjust my idle higher, using the Nemesis ECU. Now my rear cylinder isnt firing.

    New thread time.
