your right you revs will drop and you bike will SLOW down just a tad, but if you pop it in N it lets it drops just like pulling the clutch in, then you put the clutch in and move to say a 5th to 2nd and then rev up around 3k and this makes the shift smooth, that way when you let off the clutch all the way the car doesnt just dive from the sudden gear shift down

Plus with todays trannys, power shifting is a lost art. Too weak and most have too much slop in the linkage and cables...

Now the old Muncie M22 in my 68 Camaro would sing a song.. but it took some work to get it right. Flat to the floor with the loud pedal, just tap the clutch pedal about an inch to unload the clutch for a milisecond and grab the next one.. waaaaaaaaaAAwaaaaaaaaaaaAAwaaaaaaaaaaAAwaaaaaaaaaa a!

Kids these days have no idea what they missed out on; and I missed out on in the late 60's being too young myself.

I sure thought this was about double clutching your bike.

The only reason to double clutch is to sychronize the gears in a vehicle that does not have a sychronizer.

The ONLY definition for double clutching is when you engage the clutch when you put the gearbox in neutral and when you shift it into the next gear.

It works BOTH ways. Up and down. Not just for downshifting.

I have never heard of anyone needing to double clutch a modern race car. They have synchros just like normal cars. You heal-toe a race car. But that's a whole nother pickle that no one understands.

We used to have an old Ford 3500 jetA truck at the Abilene airport. The synchros were worn, so sometimes it would grind through the gears. If you double clutched it, it wouldn't grind.


And why the would you try to double clutch on a bike? It has constant mesh gears!

oh... don't go off topic and bring up heal and toe and RPM matching your downshifts... wayyyyyy TMI!! LOL!!!!!!

That's why they came up with slipper clutches for bikes, because people were hopping the rear on downshifts...
