I only use it on downshifts, along with a little rev match to make it smooth as butter. I have a bazzaz zfi TC/QS now, but I did it before I had the quick shift as well. Just ease off of the throttle to take the load off of the trans, and shift it up. If you get it right it's smoother than using the clutch.

@SamRR I do the same. I shut my engine off before the turning the key off. I'm OCD like that.

After 2 tranny rebuilds on my 06 I believe chutchless upshifting does tear up the tranny. I always use the clutch on downshifts.

Save yourself some headache and get a quickshifter.

Using a quick shifter on upshifts is no different than not using the clutch..... The only difference is that the QS controls your "throttle blip" between shifts.

With a quickshifter the shift is always "on time" whereas rolling off the throttle and upshifting may cause the shift to occur early.

I only use the clutch lever when I am about to pick it up and put it on 1 wheel. Otherwise I almost forget the lever is there.

I understand your thoughts about the whole clutch thing I don't how ever understand using the kill switch everytime you shut the bike down I was always under the impression that it was ment for emergency's ie a stack

I always use the kill switch to shut the bike down. For me it's a matter of convenience as it's easier to hit when I'm coasting up to my house and into the driveway.
