Like Me, I only clutch when downshifting, I don't even clutch between 1-2, just let off the throttle a bit and it goes right into the next gear nice and smoothly. I may try to train myself to actually use the clutch this summer because I have no Idea how clutchless shifting is going to effect the longevity of the gears.ND4SPDSHO said:Unnecessary. Just blip the throttle and click the shifter. It's how I shifted on my F2 for quite a bit, it's mostly how I shifted on my 929, and mostly how I shift on the RR with no ill effects. I know of plenty of other people, including those who race that do not use the clutch for upshifting, except for the 1-2 shift.
basically it momentarily interrupts spark and causes a "stall" just long enough to unload the geartrain and allow you to upshift without resistance. That sounds dramatic but it actually happens so fast you almost don't feel it and certainly not enough to upset the bike when cranked over. As soon as the unit senses your foot applying upshift force to the shifter lever it sends the interrupt and that resistance drop pops you into gear.cbrsexrr said:How does it work? Does it let off the throttle for you or something?
Yep, you could just mount a thumb switch on your left handle bar and momentarily kill the spark. That way it wouldn't do that when you clutched, which it probably will do.cbrsexrr said:Cool, thanks Jetblast. Sounds kinda pricey if that is all it does though, but then again I couldn't make one.
Great followup on the dynojet version - thanks for the info. I've been looking into the translogic one all along because fuel delivery interrupt & latency is not something I want to guinea pig.bellshonda said:Not to contradict Jetblast, but the one offered by Dynojet simply cuts the injectors. Since thier box only controls the injectors, that's all they can shut off.
This is where the problem is with the 600RR. They only control 4 injectors instead of all 8, therefore the current system will not work on the RR until they develop one that incorporates all 8 injectors (which means a new harness as well ).
I actually spoke with them yesterday and the have no estimated ETA for the availabiliy for the RR.
Yup...I saw a mod on cbrworld.net where a guy wired the side stand safety switch to the horn button and removed the horn. All you would do is tap the horn to 'stall' the engine.Actually you could make a crude one by using the stock side stand safety switch.
