It's OK to upshift without the clutch, but you'll have to "back off" a tad anyways to get it to pop into the next gear. The gear dogs are undercut to help keep them together under load. The only way to allow them to disengage properly is to preload the shift pedal, back off the throttle slightly, and bang it into gear. It won't hurt anything if done properly. If done sloppily it can damage tranny parts such as forks, shift drum, gear dogs, etc. The quickshifter interupts the ignition signal when a gear change is made to allow the tranny to unload in this same fashion for a split second while the throttle is still held open.
If you've never done it before, I'd recommend practicing it outside of a dragstrip environment first.
It shouldn't cause the front end to wobble or come up unexpectedly when doing this.
I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.
