In the engine or drive train?
Answer is yes-------not so sure any more. I used to get some gear lash and yes it was a normal thing. Engine can hiccup a bit in roll on from low RPM's. Lugging a Vic isn't a good thing. HD guys do it to their bikes, but I feel the HD would rather be ramped up as well. It seems to become a more responsive beast.
The -not so sure part- I put a AFR+4 on mine recently and the gear lash is all but gone. I am (perhaps mistakenly) feeling the engine cuts a bit in many circumstances in the stock tune. So that would make for the undecided answer.
