i dnt use it when im upshifting, but i do use it when im downshifting that way i could prevent the rear wheel from locking and stalling my bike (especially in turns). I use it to downshift aslo because u get better control when u are engaging a turn...

somtimes i down or upshift while in the air, depending on if there is a straight or a quick turn, but i usually pull the clutch a lil bit to maintain the RPM through turns...BUT IT WONT HURT UR CLUTCH...

ohh yea make sure to get off the throttle when u shift without the clutch...So basically using the clutch when upshifting won't hurt ur transmission, thats just how 4 stroke clutches are made.....

I always down shift with the clutch out unless I'm doing a brake slide to prevent the motor from stalling just like Gary said.

explains how the transmission in most common motorcycles...

i use the clutch to start moving, stop moving (stopping completely), and feathuring it to maintain power...just make sure if u do not use the clutch, to roll of the throttle to decrease the "load" and u will be fine. i've been doing it for a while...search it, just type clutchless shifting on TT, this has been a very controversial issue..

im talking about when i just start to go and i dont do mx so i dont have to worry about that. Yeah im talking about wen im just getting going when i let the clutch go wen i shift into 1st from neutral im always so slow letting my clutch out cause i dont want to flip so if you could just tell me how to let my clutch out faster without doin a wheelie or flipping it would be much apreciated
