First of all, I've done a few searches trying to find this information, and haven't been successful. I've read a lot about shifting without the clutch, and I'd like to give it a try. Could someone explain the best technique? I know that some "pre-load the shifter", and I've taken this to mean applying pressure on the shifter as you're easing the throttle back on. I've also heard that this will probably cause premature wear to your transmission. I tried the other day, but it seemed as if the shifter wasn't going anywhere. What's the best way to do it, and what sort of RPMs should I be looking at? I'm riding a 2008 1000rr, by the way. Any help is appreciated.
