Clutchless shifting.

How many of you clutchless shift? Does it cause issues for the transmission? I do it occasionally when I am vigorously accelerating. Thoughs pro/con?

Hopefully this doesn't start an opinion "holy war."

I never use the clutch when upshifting from 2 through 6 and I have almost 24,000 trouble free miles on my bike

I really dont see any point in not using your clutch for normal everyday riding, unless you are just that lazy what is the benefit?

Saves on clutch cable wear, plus my bike upshifts so smooth without the clutch it's seamless

Usually don't use the clutch from 2nd or 3rd on up. Original clutch pack and I have over 40k on mine. Occasionally I will do it downshifting as well.

Shifting while riding "Right Hand Only" LOL
You don't have to bend down to pull the clutch and if you take a little practice, down shifting is just as easy. About 1/8 blip on the trottle will sync it up. Probably won't work too well if your really going to the wall, but for just cruising it's easy.

There was a video posted here about 6 months ago about a 1 arm 1 leg guy riding track. Figure that one out.
