Power shifting basically. Just pull the clutch ever so slightly and it will go in the next gear with ease. I can't seemed to get the clutch less shifting thing down lol so that how I do it. Would like a quickshifter at somepoint.

After thinking about it, I wasn't sure how I shift, so I had to go for a quick ride to Sonic and back I seem to keep the throttle steady and ever-so lightly flick the clutch and she jumps into the next gear with ease.

Yeah, this is what I do. Keeps my RPMs up, but be careful you don't fan the clutch too long as the bike can lose traction and low side.

I used to shift without a clutch as that's how my dad taught me. I would peak my RPMs, keep a little bit of pressure on the shift lever, and ever-so lightly let off throttle, jolt my foot, and "Boom," you're in gear

Strictly for the GEN2's Sporting the undertail with pride!

When dealing with 160hp + bikes this doesn't make sense to take your fingers off the handle bars but with that being said beanedisel is doing it and he is the one if not the fastest riders on this site.

I have been power shifting for decades last couple of years had someone evaluate my my data logger on how quick I get back on throttle power-shifting he was amazed on the times I still don't have a quick shifter never have all foot shifting and to be honest I am proud of my Lack of Mods on a bike to go fast seems to be sweeter with less mods but still a 9s bike with fat ass.

I use my index finger only at high speeds. It's essentially a power shift, but I guess it gives me peace of mind knowing I pulled the clutch lever 2mm

Bloo, if you really want to decrease your numbers even more; just get a G4. Completely stock G4 will burn your modded G1 because it's a G4 I was informed this by someone who has owned and ridden hundreds of bikes for thousands of miles each.

lol...if I really want to decrease my #s I buy a Gen 2 ZX14...it's not about the #s for me like some others it's the challenge to launch a Stock Wheel Base bike at 54in. or longer foot shifting as a heavy guy to boot....everything else is gravy but do like the Wins.
