Shouldn't be.

Remember most of the time at the track they will ding you for less than a 1.5 inch chain sag at tech. You ALWAYS run the chain loose so that it doesn't bind the rear suspension.

If the throttle is being that agressive that you can't roll in (and I don't mean from 1,200 RPM more like 4 grand) smoothly you can always drag the rear brake a bit, its something that I have done for years since my Speed Triple is pretty bad with driveline lash.

If you aren't completely off of the throttle it won't lock the rear.
