s1000rr Clutchless shifting

mikethebike2011-04-12 23:21:12 +0000 #1
My S1000rr has clutchless shifting assistance. I read the manual, did some research online, nothing and no one is clear about it.

Must be the german to english translation or maybe I'm slow, but I don't get it and I'm too much of a chicken to try it on the road.

Can someone please explain how that works? Do I just shift up without touching my clutch lever and even cutting my throttle and thats it?

Many bikes can shift without pulling the clutch. Put some weight on the shifter, then briefly chop the throttle like you would when rev-matching during shifting, and the bike will be in the next gear. It's usually a little jerky at first, gets better with practice. Do it in a higher gear to minimize jerk, I wouldn't shift from 1 to 2 without clutch though.

It's also possible to downshift without clutch.

When shifting up, just apply some pressure to the gear shift and the bike will do the rest. It all happens pretty fast! I have used it on all the newest K1300 bikes and S1000RR. While it's pretty neat feature unless were racing I don't see the street use for it.

Humm ok, i'll have to try it out on a deserted straight street one time.

Thanks.

No, do you generally answer all questions like this?

Only when I can't stop laughing at the question!!

You've got the most technically advanced, most powerful litre bike on the market and you asked a question that I'd expect from a new owner. I don't understand how you could have a bike like that and not have a full understanding of the systems that it uses. Not trying to be a dick here but it just didn't make sense.

Heck when I put and HM strain gauge quick shifter on my R1 I sure as heck new what it was supposed to do and how to operate it!!

PS: fuck off Peewee!!!LOL
