I think I will dare ask for a small clarification. How much driveline lash is there from a lightly loaded cruise to full power? I would say none.

Also, I would use for an example of a peaky power curve, the old Yamaha two stroke engines we use to ride. They would lift the front wheel when they came " on the pipe". Really something for an inexperenced rider.
