Re: what is speed shifting and how, or should I do it?
Noleman you say yes and then describe something different. ????
There are devices on the market called speed shifters and what they do is for a moment they kill your ignition, this unloads the transmission. This prevents the need for what Noleman is describing which is a clutchless shift. With a speedshifter it allows you to keep the throttle wide open and still shift.
Noleman describes a clutchless shift and I wouldn't think there would be an advantage to a clutchless shift on the street, why take the chance of abusing your transmission for shifts not done properly. When racing every fraction of a second counts. I don't know about 2 seconds a lap. Putting a speedshifter on my bike was good for a quarter second a lap but no way 2 seconds even on a big track.
