Re: Underbraking stutter
i have the same issue on my 954. ran through a few senairos. rotors, tire, head or wheel bearings. then i realized it only does it after engaging the clutch for the last second or two before coming to a stop. when the motor is unloaded from the drivetrain. it comes and goes, so its hard to pinpoint it cause it catches you a bit off guard when it happens. but i def feel it more on the clutch side of the bars. i dont know if its from slop in the basket or a bearing down there or what. i dont know enough about what goes on down there to make a firm opinion on what exactly it is but come spring i will do some r&d with the service manual and try to narrow it down. i dont believe it anything too serious, i mean i use my bike hard, really hard, and it has not occured any more frequent then when i first noticed it. which was about a month after i bought the bike in early 07. its def an annoyance. esp if you like your stuff to be right but i wouldnt sweat it. let me know if you figure it out before i get a chance to when the weather breaks.
* try shifting into neutral early and have the rpms at idle and then stop and see if it still rumbles.
