FJR 1300 AE (LONG!)

I see this tendency a little on my WR450.  While the Revloc 
clutch isn't the same as the FJR, the basic idea is the 
same.  When the bike is at idle the Revloc disengages and 
you blip the throttle slightly to kick it back in which can 
make a situation like this a bit jerky.  The difference is 
that you still have the clutch available to use on the 
Revloc and can smooth the engagement if you need to.  And 
with a 38 inch seat height and my 30 inch inseam I 
sometimes need to.  ;-)
