i noticed my 929 is picky about shifting from 1st to 2nd, if i dont shift super fast without letting the rpm drop hardly at all i wont get a smooth shift, or it will hit neutral and ill have to re shift to 2nd. if i shift about 6k or above its smooth but under 6k or so it has to be shifted super fast to have a clean shift. this is for normal street riding ,

Anywhere from 4k to 11k, depending on the situation.

Lol I saw this and thought to myself, "Anywhere below redline and at least 2k above idle?" Sounds like it prefers load. How well does it make changes with clutchless shifting?

it does prefer load thats a better way to put it, if im just holding the throttle enough to keep the bike moving i have to shift super fast. if im on the throttle about half way or more it shifts alot smoother when i blip it . it shifts ok clutchless but i dont wanna keep doing that

So when you do your standard clutched shifts you still have some twist in the throttle? Even if you back off a little bit, the engine will climb in RPM once the load is let off. Proof is- what happens when you're on the highway and you just grab the clutch with no throttle adjustment? Your Rpm goes up. I suggest letting out more throttle for your clutched shifts and rising to match the speed. If you want the perfect shifts, keep up on clutchless and maybe consider getting a quickshift. They are pretty wonderful :)

so your saying to let off the throttle fully when shifting ? if i do that it will lose alot of rpm. i usually just let off a hair then shift

You need like 3 hairs ;) is this your first sportbike? I had a friend go from a 250 to a cbr600 and he thought something might be wrong with the transmission because it wasn't half as leanient as the 250. He cleaned up his shifting and no problems.

There's your problem. You're supposed to have 6 before downgrading to a Honda litrebike ;)

haha. well i went out and bought a pair of boots , problem solved, i think the soft shoes i was wearing all along were causing the shifter not to move well enough.. i didnt have any problem shifting the whole ride home at any rpm. of course it will still clunk a bit if you shift to 2nd at too low rpm but other wise i think bike is normal, and as far as downgrade i dunno lol. my 04 gsxr 750 was very comparable to the 929 power wise. i think id even give the gsxr the edge on high end power and looks but i do like the 929 too
