Oh just leave him alone , we are being too hard on him , who has gotten hurt on a bike anyhow ?

Just go out and ride and have fun, Worse thing it can happen is you fall off.

We don't want you doing it. You don't have the required experience to attempt it, and you shouldn't be riding a 636 anyway.

If I'm ever looking to total my bike I'll let you ride it. You wouldn't get a quarter mile down the road.

Baby Jeebus helps those who help themselves.

If he wants to fock up, let him.

OP,
I just hope you're talking about how to do clutchless upshifts and not the whole shifting in general.

Mini Dirtbikes like 50 or 80cc have no clutch and you can only shift by unloading the tranny with shutting down the throttle and click it in gear in that moment.

Go try those small things in someone's backyard and you'll understand how shifting gears work.


I got chased off the race track pit once cuz i was having fun dragging knee (and rolling over my own foot...stupid kick starter in the way) on our pit bike XR50. I was wearing gloves my pants with already srubbed down sliders and race boots. Apparently if I would've worn a helmet, the paramedics wouldn't have complained and let me do.

No, he is talking about regular shifting. If you read the OP you'll see he was holding in the clutch lever whenever he wasn't accelerating. I don't know how or why you get the idea to buy a ZX6R when you don't have even the most rudimetary knowledge of how to ride.

I've learned shifting bike on a Shadow 750. Did that for 20min.

Got my CBR125 a week later, had my MSF 3wks after that while I already put on 1200km.
In Germany 95% (not exaggerated) are manual driven vehicles. Only the old or rich drive automatic.
So I grew up with stick and know the concept of clutching inside out.

It's a pain to watch people when they don't get the hang of how to use the friction zone!

That 125 was built so cheap, you had to be more accurate in anything you did except for brakes.
It got the bitchiest clutch ever, that's where I learned a really steady hand for grinding the friction zone.

Without that ability I'd have launched my bike half a dozen times by now due to loss of balance.

Yea that's cuz were hardcore over here in the States.. Ok guys so today makes 1 week since I've had the bike. Been riding at least an hour everyday, my shifting is very smooth, changing lanes is great, turning is getting better but need to work on downshifting while entering a turn.. I wound it up to 10,000 running through 1-3 gears, I finally got it to scream guys, it was great. If I leave the throttle cracked slightly while quick shifting, its smooth as silk. Did an oil change today, 4 quarts of kawi 10w40 and a kawi filter. Also replaced the brakes, front/rear pads cost about $90 from the factory. My lever pull is still extremely long, I'm guessing a good bleed is necessary.
