Roll off throttle, pull in the clutch, shift up, release clutch, roll on throttle.

Also,

Pull in clutch, shift down, match revs to next gear, release clutch.


Good luck.

Ask if you can use your own bike for the class, or take up 392's offer of help and learn on your bike. It's true that you have to respect the 600, but it shouldn't be such a difference that you're uncomfortable. A lot of people start on 600 or even bigger bikes and they don't have these same problems. As for shifting - I have always used the clutch; my bike has nearly 70k miles.

Did you really already go down? That may be your problem - you may just be scared to ride it. That's fine - take it slow, but do get help.

I have only ridden the bike about 6 times since I've had it l, and all were in my neighborhood. I just need experience riding. If I can't seem to get the hang of it, I will definitely hit up Challen later.

I do almost everything that MSF has taught me, but I have forgotten a few things because I took the class in December, then it got cold and I didn't ride. I just started riding regularly around the neighborhood this week. Im going to re-read that BRC booklet that I revived from awesome cycles. Maybe I should have done that first.


1.Why wait and see in a few weeks? Have you read your previous posts? Your asking "how to shift" basic stuff dude.

2.You only ridden it 6 times? Ok, you have already crashed it as well.

3.Get your experience at the MSF

4.You forgot a few things from your class? How to shift the bike?

Man I'm not trying to bash you but come on. You obviously are struggling and I'm just trying to help you. Either take the class again (like everyone on here is telling you) or bring the bike (on a trailer) to my shop and ill help you.

I want to see you enjoy the bike not get hurt and destroy yourself or the bike.

This is pretty much what you should do. MSF again or get this awesome guy to help you.
