    Re: Do you use your clutch?

    This is the interwebs and talk is cheap but so is smooth.
    Load is load and F'g up a shift is a load which you feel. That said a proper rev match and means you transitioned from one gear to the next with minimal load and can apply power again.

    This gear box is constant mesh. That said it is NOT the gears being abused by a bad shift but the clutch dogs and to some extent the synchros.

    Smooth is smooth. Fail is fail and the 1 - 2 or 2 - 1 shift being at 40+% gear change is easy to F up for many.

    Any of this sound harsh to the gear box? Granted not all is clutchless... but it helps me sleep... lol

    Re: Do you use your clutch?

    Interesting topic. Riding season is almost here. This makes sense, I will try shifting from 3rd gear to 4th --> 5th and so on with no clutch and report back. It might be actually smoother than using the clutch!
    Yeah downshifting I think I will stick in using the clutch

    Re: Do you use your clutch?

    I can honestly say the only times not using the clutch is a lapse in thinking.. like wth just happened? I forgot to clutch

    Re: Do you use your clutch?

    I clutch from 1-->2 and on all down shifts but do not use it other wise. Now whether that's right or wrong I haven't a clue. It seems to depend who you ask.

    Re: Do you use your clutch?

    I did test this out and if I am on fairly high rpm this works like a charm but at low rpm my gear does not really want to release so I don't force it.
    I think I will use this technique if I am in a hurry\racing otherwise I wont...
