Are you referring to something like: acceleration (maybe hard acceleration?) from less than 3,500 RPM in top (6th) gear?
Or a shudder under 3,500 RPM in any gear?
Low revs -- how low..?
There are a terrible lot of lies going about the world, and the worst of it is that half of them are true.

I think I know what you mean. Although obviously bikes don't like being in really low revs in a higher gear the Tiger seems to be more juddery than others in this case, if I do 10-15 mph in second it's not very happy, it kind of feels like it might stall. It never has though.

I ride a large single as well as the Triumph triple and below 3k the single is very lumpy and reluctant to rev but I wouldn't say it shudders. My triple will do the same at low revs in a high gear. If you think it may have a problem, I would take it to a qualified motorcycle garage and let them test ride it.
