      Hey bro, quick question, I'm a new rider and I want to know: If you're in 4th gear and you're coming up to a stop sign, can you hold the clutch in and cycle back to 1st gear? Or do you have to cycle through 3rd, 2nd then 1st with a blip shift?

      Horrible video. You use terminology not understood by the beginner. Just what does "dump" mean, or "feathering"?

      Next, you assume we know how to go to first. You just stomp on the clutch, the same as down shifting ... how do we know the difference.

      And so on ...

      Totally worthless video. Horrible tutorial.

      I'm a complete beginner and it wasn't hard to deduce that dumping meant letting go of the clutch, its especially a very simple concept to understand if you had driven a manual car.

      The camera clearly shows and he also already explained to down shift you kick the gear down and to up shift you flick your foot upwards to push the gear up, again, very simple concept to comprehend if you just pay attention to the video

      Sorry but you are wrong, and given the like to dislike ratio and the positive feedback this video got I think its safe to assume that people agree with me..

      i hope you notice this sir , is it really applicable that you need to still slowly release the clutch when you downshift in second gear in low speed? and what will happened if you release it fast just like how you upshift the gear ? thanks sir

      will the motorcycle in second gear still stall just like how you start the motorcycle while on 1st gear by releasing it fast after you downshift?

      Is this the gear pattern? 1-N-2-3-4? How to go back to neutral? I saw u switch from 1st to 2nd and vice versa.

      so holding down the clutch you can go straight down to first gear? you dont have to release clutch every gear right?

      TheUnknown no... First has a very slow speed. So taking from 3 to 1 directly will cause trouble, I guess.. Cos bike is rollin in high speed and suddenly engine is put into a slow speed.. It will damage engine or gear..
      But if you are in speed range of first it is okay I guess.. I am also learning it..

      Let's just say your coming to a stop and your in 4th or 5th gear you bring your clutch in then come to stop then gear down all the way to 1st ... Basically not gearing down through all gears as you coming to the stop ..does that not harm your engine or does it ?

      ste mak87 if you stop bike completely, shifting to 1 is okay..then you can start rolling again.. Cos 1st is gear to start rolling.. Otherwise you have to match the gear and speed..
