With my 2016 Pulsar Hatch, when I'm cruising downhill at speed (roughly 70 -100 kph) with no acceleration applied, there is a strange 'jerkiness' - where the engine revs go up and down intermittently between about the 1500-2500 rpm range (rather than just stable rpm). It feels as if I'm intermittently braking slightly, but no brakin... more
