Used to be a SoCal Busa
With a stock clutch, what's the best launch technique? Rev a certain rpm and pop the clutch, rev a certain rpm then let the clutch out controlled, or just get into gear and open her up then?
If you have full throttle on, you have to ease it off to shift... Tranny won't go until you do. Also, never do clutchless from 1st to 2nd, 'cause it is very hard on gears.hey Mike, This clutchless shifting your speaking of, your holding the throttle and not letting off of it at all while shifting or do you let off of it for the shift?
You are fine from 2nd to 3rd also. You just need to get the timing down with the throtle. Many do down shifting if you do it right it will not hurt the tranny. i agree with you on this, I prefer not to down shift with out the clutch. Up shift all the time.Cluthless Shifting Defined-
The easiest way to clutchless shift is to start in 3rd going into 4th gear. You need be going FULL throttle, and "flick" your wrist to cut power, shift, and get right back on it.
When I clutchless shift, it's literally a quick "wrist flick" with upward pressure on the shift lever.
This is how your do it. Get into 3rd gear and give your bike full throttle. When you are ready to shift, QUICKLY left of the gas, click into 4th, and GET BACK ON IT HARD!
You'll see the bike will shift gears smooth as a hard boiled egg. It's fast. Just wrist flick from 100% throttle, to 80% throttle (shift), then back to 100% throttle
Dont ever do it downshifting, you'll wreck your tranny. Only do it upshifting from 3rd and up. Dont clutchless from 1st to 2nd, sometimes you'll get a false neutral.
I also advise moving your shift level down a notch to get a more "positive" hard shift.
Just remember "quick wrist flick" and you'll do it perfect every time.
Hope this helps
