Banging 1st from N at 6k with no clutch is a no no.

I forgot about texting. I have a QS shifter so I can use both hands to text and shift easily.

Well I am not sure what the big deal is Zero you seam bent to try to prove everyone that doesnt use the clutch everytime like you is an idiot. Unless I am reading the post wrong.
I use the clutch to go into first. After that I dont really use it thru 6th, unless I am doing it in traffic type conditions. If I am hammering it ie hauling I def dont touch it. I do know when to hit it, my shifts are smooth.
This is my bike and after 2 years of riding it I know the feel of it, she talks to me, she tells me what she needs. You sir just need to learn to truly love your bike and stop treating her like a piece of metal
I also drove a 27'bobtail for 7 years and drove it without using the clutch 90% of the time. I was able to Drive my Honda accord for 3 years without clutching. Cept 1st of course. There has never been an issue with any vehicle I have driven so far. I have been riding bikes off and on over 10 years and driving over 20... fml im old. 8 of which I was a CDL driver.
You can sit here all day and preach that if its there you have to use it, but that is not true in all cases.

cause the OP was talking about NOT pulling the clutch lever, as far as i could tell by "blipping"



Simply jamming the shifter down... isnt that by definition clutchless? clutchless downshifting doesnt hurt anything, yet it damages teh transmission?

Im very confused here... either my bike is missing some shifting mechanism that ive never heard of or seen before, or you're just not making any sense...
youre a moron. read the original question, and read my response. if you still need help figuring it out, ill be happy to help.

Didn't say everyone else is a moron. Just never read in any manual that said not to use the clutch before shifting. They didn't add that to waste space I'm positive.

So you read all of your manuals. I suppose you also never spead. or not use your blinkers and you must always follow the 3 second rule right. Or do you pick the arguments that are written to fight online about.

SO basically you are a troll. ><
sweet you are like me!

Well it has been said you need the clutch to stop in gear and take off. So nobody said they were a waste of space except you. All this thread is about is shifting without using the clutch. Not about the clutch being useless.

They don't have to its the sarcasm and the way you write things. Believe it or not people can read when you are being stupid or trying to make them look stupid. And not everyone that is on this forum is an idiot that does not see when you are doing this.
