On an R6 I think burning the clutch is the least of your worries...
Have you taken the MSF course? if not they will teach you all the basic controls and technique you need to safely ride a motorcycle. I HIGHLY recommend it.

Screw the clutch,messing up any of your body parts will be way more expensive.

Take the MSF, don't do burnouts, and don't worry about blip-shifting just yet. Take the MSF course. Do it before you ride anymore.

You have your entire life to ride. Don't rush it. Do it right, take your time.

until you get over 28, then you're old. and you can't ride sports bikes any more.

As for the OP, seems your question got taken off course. What part of town do you live in ?

Just so you know the clutch is maybe 200.00 in parts to replace. Price the plastic on one side. I wouldn't worry too much about the clutch.

I do see a lot of newer riders with their clutches adjusted wrong therefore causing slippage. Not misuse.

Welcome to MH, also what side of town are you on?

But I do find these post to be a little funny. Not sure if he has taken the msf but why buy a bike before that. At least it lessens the chance of it getting messed up by rider error. But in regards to his question, its some what hard to burn a clutch from a few bad shifts unless something is already broke. You will eventually get the hang of it and will be shifting like a "pro", it just takes time.

You'll only burn a clutch fast if the clutch is not adjusted properly like Klassik mentioned. Wear all your gear and go out and ride and get use to it. Make sure you got full coverage insurance.

Keep your fingers off the clutch lever and the clutch will never burn

Just curious, why are you worried about burning up the clutch? What are you thinking might happen or what have you been told?

So you have taken the msf course and have your license? Using the clutch is the first thing they teach you in that class.

Taking the MSF at AwesomeCycles gets you a badass discount at all the best motorcycle related shops in town. You can a discount on the bike, the gear, and insurance. AND you end up saving EVEN MORE money by keeping your first bike longer than you otherwise probably would have.
