Alright this might sound stupid so here goes. Does it hurt anything to down shift without using the clutch. I have been doing it that way just pushing on the shifter and it slipps down very easy but my roomate told me its bad for it so I've come to the experts.:bow

The 06/07/08 have a slipper clutch which is designed to downshift without using the clutch. And you won't hurt your bike for the most part. I recommend all of you who didn't know you can clutch down with a slipper clutch research the technology.
