Changing gears

Can anybody tell me if it can damage the gearbox when i shift gears without using the clutch.

If so how do you guys do it standing up and use the clutch and shift gear.

I rarely use the clutch to shift, been doing this for more years than I care to say, and have never had any transmission problems whatsoever.

Do not "jam" it into gear while under power or you will hurt your bike. Turn the throttle off for a second to relieve any load on the transmission and shift. When standing, be careful not to turn the throttle off to much or for to long, or you may end up taking a real close look at your front fender or worse.

Hope this helps.
