I have a 2008 nine LE with just 2600 miles on it, i use to ride a CBR600 crockrocket. I love this bike however I'm having some issues coming out of first gear. The front end slides on me and it jerks. This happens about 50% of the time I take off. It seems to clear up once the bike is warm, but I'm not even sure of that either. I got the maintence done and Suzuki told me it was my driving technique. I give it a nice flow of throttle then ease off the clutch and the bike jerks and jumps like it's in a lower gear. But I'm only taking off!!! I insisted to Suzuki something was wrong but he said I may be riding it wrong. This happens alot when first riding the bike and then off and on moderately during riding it. I refuse to think I'm having a procedural issue as I been riding for 8 years and have been on plenty of bikes. I also road a friends m109r and didn't get the jerk reaction. Please advise on what it could be, unless it's me!!! LOL, thanks!
