Re: Dry Clutch vs Wet Clutch
Yeah, that's kinda how the whole topic came up. I belong to another board (where strangely, I am one of the more experienced riders) and this guy joins after buying his first bike. He mentions that he doesn't downshift and has a hard time putting the bike in first after he coasts to a stop. Sooo... I tried to find that 'how to shift' article I read a while back but ended up just re-writing the thing because I couldn't find the original. I gave both techniques, with and without clutch... and this new rider says he knows how car clutches work and that you can abuse motorcycle clutches because they are wet and not dry like cars. He then agrees to test out 'my' method of shifting without a clutch. *sigh* I hope he doesn't think I'm the only one that does this.
Anyway... I gave him the info, what he does with it is his business.
Cheers, and thanks for the answer ccwilli.
