Yeah, when the rpms rose again it wasn't because the engine was producing more power, it was because the engine is being forced to speed up from your transmission being reengaged.

So the engines torque wasn't really related at all.

Your tires spinning cause the transmission to turn at a certain speed, so letting the clutch out causes rpm and transmission speed to synchronize and that happens only as fast as you let out the clutch.

This is why if you rev up with the clutch in and let it out quickly the bike accelerates quickly (and does a wheelie, or a burnout, or just burns the clutch plates unnecessarily)

If the revs are below where they should be your engines internal friction and compression will slow your transmission down fairly drastically until they match again while simultaneously speeding up in rpm.

Someone else said it I think, but what you experienced was the back tire slowing down too quickly as if you were applying the back brake and losing traction.

If you aren't able to rev match then let out the clutch slower to prevent this. Though you should really get use to rev matching or just hanging onto the higher gear until you're comfortable with it.

first off, I'm willing to bet it wasn't as violent as you think. If you see the video you'll likely say "that's it?" Been there, done that.

Secondly, no, that's not a tank slapper. A tank slapper is when the front end is out of control, not the rear. Your whole bike was pivoting around the steering head, a tank slapper is the exact opposite.

Need a wire harness previous owner cut up everywhere and has open connections

That previous owner was me. That bike was never intended to be a streetbike again. Open connections in the lighting system didn't seem to really matter on a bike that would never have lights.

Chris 5.0 is, unquestionably, riding my old bike. I sold it to the guy up there.

I came back to 372 random lengths of wire that appear to have been cut with small rodent teeth, "PoPo wuz hur" scratched into the drywall on the ceiling, and the next door neighbor screaming that both him and his identical twin were just instantly circumcised. The really strange part? The twin lives in San Diego...

I don't have either. The bike was sold 100% as a track bike. There weren't wires dangling, though. In fact, I don't know what wires are back there that COULD dangle that far. Up front maybe, but not out back.
