Clutchless shift on track

Hi, for those of you who use SF on track, do you shift your gear without using the clutch and without a quick shifter?

I always shift (on a street and track) without no clutch. But the bike does have a DP quick shifter.

I do it on wheelies sometimes but have noticed if the up shift is not assertive it does at times goes into false neutrals.

Thanks all. Will give it a go to see if it gain time on track, hopefully I won't damage the clutch and gearbox too much. May try a quick shifter if it is not too expensive

Get the quick shift setup. It kills the ignition for a split second to break the torque, and that's easier on the shift dogs in the tranny.

I upshift all the time (track and street) with no clutch - I've also used the QS and they are cool but I don't really see a need to spend the money.

I don't deny that you can. But sooner or later it'll booger up the engagement dogs on the gears, and it'll start popping out of gear. Then you get to split the cases to replace them. That's acceptable with a race bike that gets pulled down every year, maybe not for a street bike. You can pay a little now or a lot later.

the momentary ignition cut is no different than a quick throttle blip to release tension on the drive train...
