Wanna get my bike checked... No more strange smell and running ok but the throttle is not feeling as smooth as before and bike almost feels jerky at the lower end of the rev range. Do not wanna take to my dealer, they get my book stamped but after the last time I picked it up I've lost confidence in their mechanics. Jerky sounds really bad it is only a slight feeling when coming off and on the throttle.

Could this be a lubrication problem and just need to lubricate throttle cable...

Check your tyre pressure?
When my tyres were flat, my bike slowed down very harshly when I let off the throttle...

May also be worth lubricating your throttle cable, and chain...

Did my chain on Monday. Do I need to disconnect throttle cable to lubricate? Did tyres also on Monday. Really bugs me as I do not trust anyone to touch my bike without charging me for something they have not done.

Hmmm, well yeah I understand.
I only go to a couple garages that I know well!

I don't think you do.
There SHOULD be instructions in the service manual I imagine...

If it were me, I would open up the switches (the box with the kill switch etc.) on it, and lube the area that the cable runs through.
And then lube the other end. But really, I wouldn't know :S

I booked my bike in for all that... Had ALL cables and moving parts adjusted, tightened, and lubed. Only cost me £35 odd for a half hour labour.
