Question I have was that my S3's shifting is fine but seems to be not as smooth as it should be? What I mean is that going into second and jerks the bike down unless i really am giving gas. If im in first and give it gas also its very very touchy. its hard to coast at all in first and second without tossin me back. If im rolling through a town in second and let off the gas to coast it chucks the bike forward (and me as well) more so then I would think it should. But i may be wrong . :)

The bike has had the sprocket changed to 1 down in front and 1 up in back.

My buddy thinks its a throttle cable adjustment is needed? Could this also be normal for the change in sprocket and the S3?

or could a faster idle help as well? its quite low currently



thanks !

There is no give\play at all so I adjusted it a bit.

I think when the new grips were put on it was pretty tight since then maybe.

Sorry was on vacation so late response. I think its a little bit of everything. Sprocket change and just the bike and getting use to it. There just was no way of being any more touchy then I was being. So hope this helps

thanks
