Who does and who dosn't??

So here is it is..

When riding who use's there clutch every gear change up and down??

I only use the clutch when coming to a complete stop or leaving from a dead stop and no other time if I want to change gears I just back off the throttle just a little bit and all is good..

Is it going to damage the gearbox if I keep doing this??

I've always used clutch for both up and downshifts on the street and track, force of habit I guess. Looking forward to testing out my quickshifter in the spring to go clutchless ups.

Clutchless upshifting is harmless. There are mixed opinions on clutchless downshifting.

Mostly clutch on up and down shifts. There have been a few instances where I went from 2nd up clutchless while racing with a few friends. Rarely do any clutchless downshifting...usually when I'm coming down gears, I stopping, so I sometimes drop 2 gears at a time and allow engine braking to help slow me down.

I almost never pull the clutch when shifting up, even before I got my quickshifter. sometimes 1st to 2nd but never 2nd +

Downshifting it's about 50/50 with 2nd to 1st being the main area for the clutch pull

I guess i figured they had good reason to include a clutch lever on the new cbr, so i use it.

For me it's 50/50 on the upshifts ( after 2nd gear), but I always use the clutch for downshifts.
