Does anyone else have this issue with their Bobber ...
My Bobber has 300 miles on it so will be going for it's first service shortly. I am loving it but have an issue when commuting to work. If in 1st or 2nd gear and trying to cruise at a constant speed in traffic the bike feels 'jumpy'. What I mean is if trying to hold a constant RPM, say 2500, the bike will not cruise but is twitchy with the power coming through not consistently. It is not a massive issue but does make cruising at a constant speed a bit unenjoyable.
Sometimes I pull the clutch in slightly and that makes it better, but I don't really want to be doing that as I'm sure that isn't great for the clutch. I must admit I'm a bit ignorant with motor engines and the such like (could the clutch need adjusting??), but wondered if this is usual for the bike in general or whether the first service will sort it out.
Any advice is appreciated.
