i am very sure that Jason rides a race bike so he might have very different equipment compared to our stock bikes, plus he is riding at a higher speed than us so that might be two variables that needs to be taken into account.... its like schumacher's F1 race car only takes milliseconds to make every shift and our production cars just can't perform the same way....

Apparently Pridmore believes that for most MH riders, locking up the rear end upsets the bike less than does blipping the throttle

the answer is there is no proper way. There is some ways that some think are better, but just do what works for you. Experiment my friend.

You don't have to blip the throttle and you don't have to downshift. You can come to a complete stop and then shift all the way down to first if you like. However, if you downshift and release the clutch while moving you will cause more wear on the clutch and rear tire if you don't blip the throttle.

Im with bevo on this one. blipping the throttle and back rapping gears is for the track. on the street, spare the motor and gearbox.

I just down shift a few let off and slow down fast on the street with corners work fines, now downshifting a few and popping the clutch in a corner scary business.

I don't think he ever blips. He does all of his gearshifting on decel. Or at least, thats the way he demonstrated it.

Didn't know a stone stock '09 GSXR 1k was a "racebike with different equipment compared to our stock bikes" but, ok.

Which is why I asked about track vs street, initially. Blip shifting on the street coming up to a light is pointless, and if you're carrying enough pace to be concerned about unsettling the suspension.........you're just riding too fast for safety.

Yea, if you are totally unconcerned about clutch or rear tire wear. If releasing the clutch after downshifting causes the RPMs to increase, you're causing wear on the clutch and rear tire

I just hammer the brake hard enought to get the rear in the air, then slam down all the gears.. let the clutch out when you come to a stop and the rear tire lands...
