Far more people do not use the clutch for up shifts than use the clutch.

Done properly, it does not cause any extra wear to the transmission.

I do know people who do clutchless downshifts. I do not recommend doing this.

I like them. Sadly though the FZR is a little rough on shifts and many times require the clutch. The Ducati with GP shift and a quick shifter is the bomb and I swear I must have shaved at least one second a lap.

 :wtf: Someone just explained to me that there's a transmission on my bike with more than 1 gear - why didn't someone tell me this a long time ago!  :wtf:

*raises hand*:biggrin: 85K miles on the original trans. drums fine, shift forks are fine gears are fine. Has created a couple "entertaining" moments clutchless downshifting though.

New clutch basket for the FZR every now and then solves that issue. Also, you can file the splines on the basket at least 3 or 4 time before you need a replacement. ;)

so what the process of making a smooth clutchless up shift? I assume, off the throttle, shift,  and back on the throttle?
