    Default Small displacement BIG fun

    This video just made me smile a bit

    The bikes make the right noises and there's some halfway decent riding...

    My thoughts exactly. No real reason to pull the clutch on any of his upshifts.

    I've heard of EX500 guys doing similar, rather than no clutch and slightly closing the throttle you basically 'snap' the clutch while keeping it WOT. You just pull enough to get it to shift and then open your hand allowing it to snap back. The idea is you never close the throttle so you maintain full velocity through the carbs (Same benefit a quick shifter gives you), plus you get more flywheel effect to help with the drive into the next gear.

    There are a couple times where he does traditional throttle based quick shifts and they're all where he's not looking for maximum drive... If you tried the snap trick on something with more nut you'd end up on you back but because it's a 400...

    Lol, that's how ysr racing is, green light -WOT -checkered flag.....never take your hand off the throttle, just bang the gears.

    Doesn't that risk burying the needle and blowing the motor?

    Yup. Although in my case I *KNOW* the high RPM cut out in my V&H Power Pak still works thanks to sticking flatslides... Also learned I can wait to brake far later than I'm used to too...

    If you're doing it right the motor doesn't have long to spool up, and ideally you're not waiting till you're already just below the limiter and well past peak torque...

    Depends if you shift at redline or when your acceleration tails off

    I started out racing by doing the "power shift". I think it's silly now.
