as mentioned in my introduction
I've had the crf1100 now for about 700kmers so i'm still adjusting to it, and one thing in particular i'm wondering if it is normal.
When driving slower in 1st and 2nd gear say 30kph / 15mph the bike (or me?) has difficulty maintaining a constant engine power (i feel the revs are barely changing). I can feel the engine holding in and then coming back to life.. then holding back in, which makes it very stuttering / unpredictable to drive at lower speeds. The RPMS are not super low, say around 2500-4000rpms. The throttle position is minimally open. At first i thought it was just my hand not holding the throttle stable (which i suppose still can be the case but i don't think it is).
When going through roundabouts it makes it quite a concentrated job, going in first gear it gets a bit nervous because the high revs and low gear, in second gear it gets nervous because of the engine power gone, engine power on experience.
I've ridden the cb500x and did not have this issue, nor on my old ZZR600 (4 cylinder so maybe not comparable since the powerband comes in at higher rpms).
The bike has run 11.000km (6800 miles) and other then this issue the engine seems to be running very well.
I'm just curious if this sounds like a familiar thing for a new rider which i just need to get used too and i just need to adjust having more power in lower rpms with less throttle, or that something maybe wrong?
