what does low end torque have to do with downshifting?

That's called not having a slipper clutch.

Not a tank slapper

The handlebars quite literally slap the tank.

What you're experiencing is "back torque chatter" but also goes by other names. This phenomenon is what a slipper clutch is designed to solve.

The guy who sold you the track Gixxer, drove all the way down from Forth Worth on Sunday to TWS (Texas World Speedway). He hadn't registered and it was a full house. He begged the whole staff, and Ride Smart finally let him in. Was in level 3 and on second session out, crashed and broke his collar bone.

Was it a tank-slapper?
