Thats not a typo folks- lash (not rash, which we will not go into here.......)
So just to clarify; lash is if you get bad jerks/jerkiness when you roll on and off the throttle. I get bad lash when cruising at at low revs and gently roll on and off the throttle between 1 and 2 thousand rpms, in say 4th or 5th gear- it's marked by quite a loud metalic snap/crack sound. For some reason it's gotten worse since I bought it, but if I ride one of the shops demo bikes they dont have it. I've had my bike now for 1 year 3 mths, and done 10k klms (6k miles). This is the only complaint I have about it, otherwise I cannot fault it.

I adjusted the throttle cable to lessen the throttle sensitivity, and lubed everything- it didnt work.

So just wondering if anyone else has had it?

Cure for your Lash is riding at higher RPMs. That's how the bike is designed and built to operate, so if you change your riding habits a bit, you'll be lash free. Try to keep the RPM above 2500 - you should never be in the 1-2k range, at least not on this bike.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

yeah I know.....it's just when basically idling, and it shouldnt "snap" the way it does.

Madame Lash? Give me Miranda Kerr and I'll show you rash!

I'm surprised that no one else has the same lash problem- it's enough to severely piss me off from time to time......

No, I live on the northern beaches. Ride in the mountains fairly often though.
I am putting the Judge in for the 8K service at Victory Ashfield shortly, and will let you know what they say and if anything they do makes a difference.
I do find it has a fair bit of snatch at lower speeds. Sometimes annoying in traffic. May just be a characteristic of the brand?
