preload? do you shift with no clutch?

yeah, in the higher gears. I have trouble rev matching and being smooth in 1st or 2nd upshift w/o clutch. but I generally try to keep my toe pressed against the shifter on any upshifts and downshifts, I've found I can shift smoother that way and it just feels less abusive on the trans. It just clicks in, kind of like double clutching a manual trans car in a downshift where the shifter feels like it's sucked into the lower gear.

I have a 04 636 motor that is of no use to me since the bike intended to use it on is a 05. If your interested paid $800 never I have never used it just collecting dust. Was told less than 300miles in this engine prior to buying it.
just make a realistic offer the ownwer of the motor needs cash.
