The reflash might help. I took a 1300 for a test ride at Thunder in the Valley a couple years ago and one of the things I didn't like about the bike was that in first and second gears there is a significant amount of drive line lash. At slow speed and parking lot manuevers you don't really want the jerking when on and off the gas. It didn't seem to be apparent in the higher gears. I don't think it has anything to do with it being a belt. I had a Roadstar and there was little drive line lash or drive line noise with the bike. It was two things I liked about it.
