Upshifting isn't bad and can result in quicker shifts if you don't force it.

never really are you "suppose" to use clutchless shifting. if i am correct, the track people do it so that rpm's don't drop when you pull the clutch lever in.

I rarely use the clutch, street or track...

its just not needed after you get into 1st.

and if you do it correctly, it saves your clutch.

from time to time I'll do it but the wear and tear I wouldn't recommend.

If on the street you can pull on the shift lever and blip the throttle and it will shift automatically; but you are still wearing the for and gear by pressing against it.

up to the rider...

It works best when the spacing between gears isn't too much (like between 3-4, 4-5, 5-6) but not from 1-2 or 2-3. And the higher the rpm, the smoother it is (in my experience).

1. "Load" the shifter (put a little upwards pressure on it, assuming you're not set-up for gp shift). 2. SLIGHTLY let-off the gas. 3. Shift. 4. Get back on the gas. Getting off the gas, shifting, then getting back on the gas should be in quick succession, like one smooth motion.

When used on a long straight (or at the drag strip) you definately get quicker shifts.

No wonder it never worked for me...!!! I tried it from 1st to 2nd shift and the transmission made an horrible sound. After that there's now a permanent sound comming from the transmission....bummer..hope is not an expensive repair. :/:

Sorry man..!!! I was just kidding...!!

I'm dumb but not stupid. I always use the clutch. I think the best way to perform this is with one of those Dynojet clutchless shifting kits.

Fair enough; question was asked in a QandA section; requires an answer by someone
