929RR roughness in drivetrain

If I at a steady lower thansay 50 mps speed it my drive train seems rough. Seem to buck and chug somewhat. I thought it was chain and sprocket. When I changed those it made no difference. Anyone else experience this?

If you're in a high gear at that speed (50mps?) it's probably normal.
Keep the rpm above 4000rpm and it should be smoother.

Re: 929RR roughness in drivetrain

Thanks but happens in lower rpms too. I get the chance to ride all different bikes and this rides rough for some reason.

Lower rpms would certainly make it worse. That's why you ride in a lower gear to keep the rpm up.
How does your 929 compare to the '00 GSXR750 or R1 or similar sports bikes?

Re: 929RR roughness in drivetrain

Seems to be an inherent issue with 929 and 954.I have had both and they feel similar to what you describe.
