Rossi's shifting style

So was watching the race last weekend and something caught my eye...

They had one of the on bike cameras pointed at rossi's clutch hand and he was just barely even tapping the clutch lever to shift, isn't that bad for the clutch? I mean I know they can afford to fix it but I was taught to squeeze the lever all the way to the grip when I shift... Thoughts?

Re: Rossi's shifting style

Theyre running quick shifters...

The ignition cuts right at the moment of shifting...less wear on the clutch...

Alot like one of these:

I took my clutch out to save weight.

So buying one of these where I can set it up both for the track and the street separately I can hypothetically increase my clutches lifespan??

Yes and no....just depends on how you ride...

The less that clutch slips, the longer its going to last...

Re: Rossi's shifting style

You don't "need" a quickshifter to upshift without the clutch. Many people have been doing it for years. Do a search on clutchless shifts.

The quickshifters allow you to do it at full throttle without the clutch by just hitting the shift lever above a given RPM. I'm not sure of the streetability of that. But it's a good mod if you are running track.

Re: Rossi's shifting style

At the strip I only used my clutch to launch. When I raced MX, I only used the clutch to start and feathered it in corners when need be. Old news fellows.
