I have my first dirt bike, a '94 XR600r. I bought it mostly for street duty (dual-sported, plated) and very light dirt (trails, fire roads). I'm used to my SV1000s street bike - a big ol' v-twin with tons of engine braking, which I love. I'm pretty smooth with the clutch/throttle as I downshift and set entry speed, but am I doing harm to the XR's transmission in the process? I assume that the tranny wasn't built to handle the "grab" that asphalt puts on the tire... I may have to learn a new riding style. What say the elders?
