Default Jerking of Bike

Well as I am still fairly new to the Biker's world. I have been noticing jerking of my bike...it mainly does it when I am shifting gears and accerlating. It goes away the faster I go. I thought it was from me not shifting correctly or to early but I have been working on that but it still does it...any ideas?

Probably needs a tune up.

If you are riding it like an old lady you are probally shifting to soon. The V twins like to be reved (within reason) and not luged.

New machine?

Sounds like your are either lugging the motor by shifting too soon or, maybe, the clutch is slipping under load which may be a maintenance error in that the cable is adjusted too tight and not completely engaging when released.

Takes some first hand experience to learn that last bit.

There's a bunch of different bike wobbles and jerks. From out of balance tires, to clutch grabbing, to misfiring, to who knows what.

Assuming you're not talking about giving your bike a hand job (you were all thinking it), can you get someone to take a short video of the problem, and post a link to a youtube vid?
