00 426. Noticed this a couple of times. 5th gear about 3/4 to full throttle. Bike lurches back and forth like the transmission or the clutch is slipping for a split second. Doesn't happen every time but enough to be concerned. Any thoughts????

Juts my experiance on my 00
I noticed this or should say agonized with this becouse of me Big Butt Feet.

In 4th and 5th if I was really on it standing up in long trail straights My foot would get caught in the shifter and lift it slightly.

Only when I was standing or transitioning

This caused the effect you are asking about "FOR ME"
Not sure what the situation is for you. if its simular I did the Peg Mod and have not experianced it yet
