I almost always use the clutch, if nothing else feathering it. Feathering it saves wear and tear on the driveline, and also is much smoother. The girlfriend doesnt like to be bounced around, either. Upshifting hard and in a hurry I dont clutch, but I always feather it on the way down.

Rubber side down!

I'd recomend for 1st to 2nd to always use the clutch & from then on you can upchange without.

I use the clutch all the time when I'm just cruising but when I'm giving her some stick I mainly change without the clutch.

I heard somewhere there is less of a need on the '03-04' to use the clutch as there's extra dogs. I rarely use it when riding hard. always use it down shifting though.
