When engine braking, then opening throttle, it really 'kicks'. What could it be? Clutch fault (measured 3.0-3.1mm friction plates, little pits on clutch housing/boss), or worn balancer driven gear springs, or something else? :eek: Any ideas? Thanx alot.

This is my initial thought, as well. Pulling the throttle is taking up the top chain slack for a brief moment before actually pulling on the sprocket.

Have you checked your chain tension? A loose chain could cause this.

Most motorcycles use a rubber damper system to integrate the sprocket to the rear wheel in order to damper the felt chain snap as the slack is taken in from engine braking to engine pulling. I don't think the TW200 does this, I think it's a bolt-on direct to hub system.

You are correct Sir!
