If you are not used to the new V, and had ridden other bikes, you may not get used to the juddering. The juddering is cause by using the wrong gear and low RPM. I came from a Carbie bike that seems not to have this juddering at all but when switching to the V, it took me a while to get used to it, as I tend to rev low. When going at very low speed, use the 1st gear. A 44T rear sprocket helps.
The juddering did reduced significantly after changing the air filter to high flow rate DNA filters. Vacuum hose mods seems to also help but this is according to those that had done it, not me. A loosen up bike after 3000 miles should also has lesser juddering. I had forgotten the juddering issue as it doesn't come on. I feel the engine lugs, doesn't judder, and drop a gear. My mileage is around 9k km but at 5k km, I haven't had the juddering issue.
