blipping when downshifting - is this something one can learn to do when bike is on a stand (pit bull type)?

I wouldn't recommend it... besides the obvious safety issue, there is no load to the rear wheel and you won't have the same feel as when the bike is actually moving.

When you do clutchless upshifts you should let off the throttle slightly and at the same time shift and thats it no blips.

He is referring to blips during DOWNSHIFTING

Re: Throttle blip when shifting - do u do it?

It is considered good practice to BLIPP the throttle while downshifting. I do It now without even thinking about it. The trickier part is downshiffting while on the brakes and still blipping the throttle. Again it is second nature to me now. And with a little practice anyone can get the technique down. As far as the clutchless upshift thing. There is a lot of debate on whether it is GOOD for the tranny and what not. I feel that it unecessary for the street rider to be doing it. It does help roll in faster times on the track. It takes very little practice or technique to do. Just preload the shiffter while on the gas ( preloading is pulling up on the shifter with you'r foot ). After you have preloaded the shifter and still applying pressure ( not much either ) you let off the gas a little and the bike will shift. You cannot do this for downshifting. Well actually you can but you won't have fun with the results, so don't do it. I only do clutchless upshifting at the track. hope this helps.

Re: Throttle blip when shifting - do u do it?

On the street you probably shouldn't do it, but if you have to just give alittle gas while down shifting to the next gear or if you are going to skip a couple gears then you should blip for each time you hit the shifter. The main point to give it a blip is to keep the back tire from chattering when you are hauling ass and are coming to a corner that calls for a much slower speed, to help keep control. But for the street it just sounds cool, it may also be better for you clutch because if your engine is just at a idle you really don't want to bring the rpm's up to a much higher rpm just by releasing the clutch.

Re: Throttle blip when shifting - do u do it?

All your trying to do is match engine speed to the speed of the rear wheel. When you get squirley (besides cold tires and road conditions)its cuz your engine speed is different than your rear wheel. So blipping the throttle brings up the RPM's, matches your rear wheel and you start to decelerate. Doing it correctly, you really shouldnt notice any chatter or anything to upset the rear wheel. Practice that, than brake while blipping the throttle. Same technique, just apply some front brake pressure.
