the right RPM for street and shifting technique
I just spent 1 hour searching in the "How To" section and the "track and riding tip/technique" section, to find LOTS of mixed suggestions and confusing advices for someone that may not have the need for such technique usage. The more I read, the more I'm confused. I seriously want to learn how to shift properly, obeying the law, at the same time keep the noise to the minimum, and also maintaining my bike's clutch and engine...
I will start flaming on those suggestions as I state my questions regarding my riding style. I use my bike on the street, no track EVER, 1 year of riding exp only so I'm still learning.
1. What RPM to shift for a normal HUMAN being? And I mean in ALL gears, taking in SPEED LIMIT in consideration. I remember reading someone suggestion to shift at 10K RPM, which, I will definitely cause the entire neighborhood's car alarm to go off. So I don't even think that's an option.
2. Pros and cons of non-clutch shifting? I ran into this non=clutching technique a lots while surfing around. I, myself, accidently up shift w/o clutch yesterday too and was curious about it. But I read around and saw some comments saying it's not good for your clutch, some said, it's great and easy for shifting... so then is it good or is it bad FOR THE BIKE?
3. Blipping pros and cons? Yup, found this, too. Say you blip the throttle a bit to gain RPM, np if u match rev right... but if you don't, what now? All I saw were suggestion how one should rev match with blipping and get use to it with experience, but what is the trade off for that experience if u take too long to master that, would ur clutch be dead by then?
I hope to get serious replies and not anything from a clown or a risk taker OR someone that can afford more than 2 bikes and feel free to abuse it.
