oops.....late edit...................see below post
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.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?
yeah I know.....it's just when basically idling, and it shouldnt "snap" the way it does.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.

Hey mate- your in the blue mountains right? Have you had the shop look at it? Any fixes?
OK. Im northside as well. The shop know about it but cant fix it- but good luck anyway. And yeah it is a problem with the brand- notice the adverts say (or did when I bought mine) "new trans reduces lash by 30%" or something along those lines. Let me know how you go.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?
