Have a 800ssie and there is an annoying snatching when at low speeds and when i'm n & off the throttle. it a problem with low speed tight long bends when you are balancing the lean withe the throttle (if you know what i mean) and need a smooth throttle. chain is adjusted correctly. its a 05 bike with 3800miles. its most apparent when carrying pillon when you don't really want full throttle of corners. I suspect its poor fuel mapping on the ecu but anyone else had problem and found a cure with out a power commander.

Daren,

I've found the same thing with my 05. I notice it more at low RPMs. Unless you are VERY slow with the throttle, you usually get a kind of "clunk". Same thing with you?

No mods on mine yet, and as with yours, the chain is fine, etc.

No mods on bike and it occurs 3-4k rpm and its a chlunk so i guess from your replies its a standard ducati ie feature. just didn't experience it with the carbed 750ss from years ago. anyone found ways to minimise it.

apparently there are 2 ways to minimize it....change your gearing to maybe a higher rear sprocket or trying to put a 14T on the front....or just don't ride at 3-4K RPM's.
