Hey Bloomington. I'm down in Decatur. I've never seen anyone use the clutch to shift while on the back wheel and it doesn't even appear you are at balance point while doing it. Not sure how you manage that. I would think it would drop as soon as you pull the clutch. May just be camera angle though.

haha yea I dont know I guess it's just what is comfortable. usually i get as close as possible the balance point when i shift and then come down a little. i have a yz125 free ride video and you can see i do it there too. i guess it's just what i am used to haha. do people not normally use the clutch when they shift? .. i've never really put much thought into it..

I use the clutch most of the time except wheelies. I'm still working on the shift while the wheels in the air, but I just power shift no clutch. whatever works for you. I wasn't saying it was wrong just never seen anyone use that technique

I always use the clutch too. It's not that hard to get used to, you just sort of "toss" it a little before you shift and then catch it in the next gear

No glove and no hand guards makes me squeamish.
