Sounds about normal for a Gen 3 then. Most people will just adjust their riding style to accommodate the engine characteristics, like Fastoman says. But, just for comparison If you someday decide to do the ECU update, your bike would accelerate cleanly, without shuddering from 2000 rpm's, and when you back off the throttle, you don't get any sudden engine braking. The herky, jerky goes away
AND you don't have to "change down the gears a lot"!
