I do it when lazily cruising around , but not at wot. I fan the clutch on upshifts and use the clutch on hard deceleration shifts. It feels smoother to me this way. My advice is to try it out a few times if you like it do it if not don't. But if you are trying to full throttle upshift with out rolling off for a sec you are going to bang the gears around.

If you want to be fast you're going to eventually have to learn how to do this. I can't think of a single trackday rider, novice racer, or pro that clutches his shifts. , I'm not sure Rossi even knows where his clutch IS.

Also, is it necessary to have a power commander to use with the dynojet quickshifter? I've got carbs so not sure if I can use the quickshifter if a power commander is needed.

Always clutchless upshift on the gixxer and sometimes down. On the chopper never clutch except for 1st. My cluch should last a very very long time.

If you can't change gears without the clutch, and it requires you to pull in the clutch halfway you're not doing it right. In order to perform a clutchless upshift you BARELY roll out of the throttle at the same time as shifting. When I mean barely, I mean barely. Like.....maybe not even roll OFF just momentarily stop rolling on. What you want to do is disengage the dog rings. If you're accelerating you're locking them together, if you're decellerating you're locking them together on the other side. There's a magic spot in between where they're momentarily not locked which is the "magic moment" to perform the shift.
That sounds good. I may have been letting off the throttle too much. I'll try different scenarios and see what works.

You'll start to feel it. Apply slight pressure on the shifter as you roll off, and it'll pretty much change gears on its own.

I only clutchless upshift when I'm "RIDING". Everyday commuting not, but definitely on the track. Never had any problems to date and that's about 2 years of riding.
