[COLOR="DarkGreen"]from your short description of the problem to me it sounds like your bike is pinging (detonating)(http://en.wikipedia....Engine_knocking)
Run a better grade fuel
Maybe you got crap fuel the last time you filled the can or tank

My '09 sounds like a coffee can full of rocks when I'm a gear high and climbing on the power...it's normal. As said above, it could be your fuel if your running lower test. I run the highest I can find here...94 octane. It's pricy but worth it.
