Despite an Idle Air Control Valve (IACV) that Honda claims is designed to help "provide smooth response to small changes in throttle position" this is exactly the problem I am experiencing. Ever driven in rush hour traffic and tried to maintain a constant slow speed while in first gear. It's nearly impossible without reverting to slipping the clutch. Try it! Attempt to slowly cruise at 5 or 6mph or accelerate from 3mph to 10mph and back again simulating rush hour stop and go kinda driving. The bike bucks back and forth between accelerating and decelerating in 1000 rpm intervals. Once you get some practice with this you can minimize it but it requires very minute movements of the throttle. A work-a-round is, of course, slipping the clutch but we shouldn't need a work-a-round if the IACV is doing what it is designed to do! This problem seems to be compounded by the fact that the bike demonstrates a lot of engine back-torque for a small single cylinder. Anyone else notice this?
