Thing I am noticing when I race, is that I have a hard time building my momentum from a low speed, once I get it up I am ok, but if I ever have to build it up, it seems like it takes me twice as long then everybody else. but the thing is, I never shift to first, rarely do I go all the way down to first, it's risking miss shifting through Neutral, I do it a lot some reason from 2nd to 1st, but I am fine from 1st to 2nd. I got a smaller counter shaft sprocket to help, but it seems like I would have to feather my clutch a lot more than I should have to. I kinda wondered if my PV is a bit sticky, but I also like to ride of the bottom end a bit more. I'm thinking I need to use my clutch more than I do, I just don't want to ruin it faster than normal.
