Default Re: Is a jerky ride at slow speeds normal?

Before a motor is broke in they can be a bit jerky, specially at low speeds. If they are still jerky at low speeds after broken in then you might look into tuning the carb a bit. Mine used to jerk badly, after tuning the carb she runs really smooth at the slowest speeds, I can pop the clutch going a couple mph and the motor starts right up and the bike rides smooth even at slow speeds. Right now my carb is tuned a bit rich due to a change in the air filter, I haven't had time to tune the carb to match the air filter yet. I noticed when tuned a bit rich its extra smooth at slow speeds, but the top end is a little lacking...
