Ok, I was just on the "Off Topic" forum, and one of the threads there gave me pause. LayinLo put up a link for a Yoshi product that claims you don't need to engage the clutch to shift... Umm... My bike already does that
Is that good.. bad.. or not a concern?
Don't get me wrong, I always clutch when shifting, but I also know that I can upshift without squeezing my clutch (never tried this while downshifting yet). I can just pop it up to the next gear without effort. The guy I bought my bike from, mentioned that to me, and although I tried it a few times, I still refrain from doing it while riding; more like I tried it out just because he said it does that. I've never actually tried that on any other bikes, so I don't know if it's the same all the way around, and I've never asked before... So now I'm asking.
