Shifting in more spirited riding question

Hey all,

I noticed in more "spirited" riding, in between upshifts, the bike revs slightly like it's in neutral. Is this because I'm pulling in the clutch faster than letting off the throttle? Mind you I've only been riding little over a month so I'm still new.

Re: Shifting in more spirited riding question

that would be my guess, especially with only a month of riding its just your timing. y exactly are you using the clutch for upshifts? get your timing right and as you are about to shift let off the throttle to a sweet spot and you can shift with no clutch.watch at 2:22 and again down the straight at 2:44 through 4 gears.

Re: Shifting in more spirited riding question

Yea I think it's my timing. I never tried clutchless shifting yet. I'll try it out sometime later down the road. I do remember I accidentally did a clutchless upshift in the MSF course when I took it awhile back.......lol

Re: Shifting in more spirited riding question

never tried a clutchless shift, but as smooth as mine shifts into gear with amsoil, I don't think the bike would struggle at all doing a clutchless shift

Yep, you're most likely letting go to slow like said above.

Shift up without a clutch, it's very easy. It took me forever to start doing it!

Re: Shifting in more spirited riding question

Can you upshift w/o the clutch at any RPM? Is it bad or harsh on the clutch? Isn't this what a Quick Shifter was made for?

Re: Shifting in more spirited riding question

a quickshifter is so you dont have to let off the gas and shift. yes you can do it at any rpm. i never ever used my clutch to upshift even on the street. only time i would was when i had a passenger to make it really smooth for them.
