I just bought my 06 VTX 1300 R about a week ago and overall I love it but I have a couple of concerns, hope somebody can help me. First one is shifting into 2nd gear and also back to 1st, this thing is so loud shifting to 2nd I grit my teeth every time I do it. I was riding beside a buddy of mine the other day, he was riding a Suzuki with Harley pipes and even he could hear it and made a comment to me. Second is popping and bucking at low speed low RPM's. I can be running about 25 in 2nd gear and it will just pop and buck and then pick right up where it left off and away we go again. If anybody has any input it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and I do love my bike what a sweet ride it is.
