    down shift

    does or has anyone tried this method for downm shifting instead of bliping the throttle?

    If the clutch on the mille only works on closed throttle then tis seems like a good idea to me!

    It also frees up your right hand to concentrate on braking and would be usefull to learn if you plan on backing it in.

    Any thoughts?

    this ones interesting. well to me!

    Hmm try that on a Twin and I suspect that this will follow very quickly



    And when you open the engine this is what will greet you

    Is he just dipping the clutch without throttling off? Yeah, I'll come and practice on your bike mate!

    I find it better when dropping 2 or 3 gears at once to feather the clutch out, makes me bike smoother, old fashioned slipper clutch.

    I downshift like the man in the vid, off throttle clutch out after every downshift.
    Hardly use rear brake, prefer to let the clutch out and let engine brake the rear into corner.
