Well, clutching while rolling on doesn't make much sense. Before I had a slipper clutch, I would, uh, slip the clutch while braking and downshifting, sure. But not while accelerating out of a corner.Alex_RR said:do you slip the clutch while rolling on the throttle to keep it smooth, or is your finger just there for when you shift?
It doesn't make a difference. In fact, you don't need to use the clutch at all on an upshift... but I find using the lighest of pressure makes for a smoother shift. This also works best under moderate to heavy throttle and medium (7k+) to high revs. Give it a try sometime: find a nice, quite road, get going about 40 in 2nd, then give it 50% throttle and when you get to about 8k, apply slight pressure on the gear selector and close/open the throttle (like a normal shift). Repeat as necessary.Alex_RR said:I have always used 1 or 2 fingers on the clutch when shifting, does it hurt anything by doing this because the clutch can only be pulled in till it hits your other fingers instead of being flush with the grip?
Right. So you can adjust the clutch slack so the lever is closer to your hand. I keep about 1" of slack which is slightly more than recommended. But like you said, as long as the clutch is engaging and disengaging completely you're fine.shraz said:my fingers too short
anyways as long as it disengage you are fine
