When riding, in any gear, when you let off of the gas for decel then go to accelerate, there is a violent jerk as you accelerate through. It feels as if your chain is really loose so there is alot of in between decel/engine braking and the engine catching back up to load the chain and for the bike to pull, kinda hard to explain. My bike is an 06 r6 with about 13k on it, I do not clutch any wheelies or burntouts. My chain is tight, also checked the front sprocket nut, it is tight. Also checked the rear sprocket for tightness and any back and forth movement, good and tight.I know some bikes have rubber bushing to help eleminate that kind of feeling, but not sure if this bike does or not. Any of you guys he any ideas. Any info will help. Still have warranty so thinking of bringing to the shop. Thanks

check your chain on a stand - check it for frozen links or overly tight parts. Your chain may be rough and on its way out.
