Does Rekluse = no engine braking?

Just curious as I was about to buy one and a friend asked me how I would like no engine braking and I guess I had never really thought about that :applause:

You won't have as much engine braking but, that's what the brakes are for. Since you can't stall it, you just jump on the brakes whenever you need to slow down. Get rid o fthe clutch lever and stick a brake lever there to activate the rear brake and you'll be good to go.

When you roll off the throttle, the clutch stays engaged and you have engine braking , just like a standard clutch. Once you take off and are riding, the clutch stays engaged until A- you roll to a stop(or slow enough speed) and engine rpm's drop low enough, or B- you lock up the rear wheel. If you lock up the rear wheel going down a hill, the clutch will disengage, and when you let off the brake you will free-wheel. A quick blip of the throttle to engage the clutch, and you have engine braking again.

When shifting, you are shifting without the clutch, since engine rpm's don't fall low enough to disengage it.
