Shifting

I'm a brand new rider. I've rode race quads for awhile and the shifting was different from techniques I've read about. Anyone want to share the best way to shift.

There's only one real way to shift, but different riders shift at different times. Besides shifting from 1st to 2nd, I usually shift around 7,000rpm's. It really just depends. I never want to strain the engine, but I want decent acceleration as well.

With my ATV I had to roll of the throttle and shift no clutch was necessary. I realize I can't do this with my bike. Is it OK to 1. Let of throttle 2. Pull in clutch. 3. Shift up. 4 let clutch out. 5 roll on throttle. Or must I roll on as I let the clutch out after shifting

that part that's in bold is what you should work on. Don't make pulling the clutch and rolling off/on separate moves. As in, when you have the clutch pulled in halfway, you should have rolled off the throttle halfway, and when you have let out the clutch halfway then you should have rolled on the throttle halfway. They should work in unison without revving the engine. It should be a smooth transition and it does take practice.
