Finally I can change gear smoothly on the motorbike

Sep 18, 2016

God I love you tube videos. Essentially I have learned how to change gear without the gear lever getting jammed. The sequence is
1. Put foot under or above the foot gear lever and apply slight pressure. I should feel the gear lever start to move.

2. Quickly roll off the accelerator so the engine revs start to drop.

3. Apply more pressure to the gear lever so it continues to move then immediately pull the clutch lever to disengage the clutch.

4. Complete the gear change.

5. Increase the revs slightly and release the clutch lever so the engine drives the gears.

6. Let the bike pull away.
