Before the WR I rode a 1986 TT350 which I still have. I got into the habbit of not using the clutch under hard acceleration in tight situations. Also, sometime down shifting under similar circumstances. I browsed the archives looking for info about this. Thought I once saw something about it but can't seem to find it now. I would like your ideas about doing this on the WR400. Is the clutch on the WR not as bullet proof as the old TT or can they handle it. Do any of you do the same thing. I would like to get your feed back pro or con. Thanks, Paul M.
