I had this and solved it!
2009 1700 Classic
I have noticed consistently that when accelerating there is a lurch or a skip....seems to happen as the revs go up whether slowly or quickly but after 2nd gear doesn't happen.
I've asked the guys at the shop but they says nothing seems to be obviously wrong.
Very annoying but I can't figure out what this is. Has anyone else experienced it?
I had adjusted my throttle cables as described by Ray in numerous other posts, and never had any of the issues as you described. A while ago when I was bored I got to fiddling with things and readjusted the cables making them even tighter. (I know never know when to leave well enough alone)
A short time later I started developing the same type of lurching or skipping or hesitation you describe.
I was starting to think the worst and how many dollars it was going to cost when
I remembered my latest foray into the world of do it your self mechanics.
So I got Rays instructions out again readjusted the cables and low and behold the problem vanished. Three weeks now and it hasn't come back. I obviously tightened the cables so much they were binding then releasing somehow.
Even if you haven't adjusted your cables maybe it's worth following Rays method
and see what happens. Nothing to loose but a bit of time.
