I have owned several bikes over the years and presently own an Ultra. I remember many years ago not bothering to use the clutch when I shifted and it never seemed to cause a problem, actually it was quite smooth and fast. With my Ultra and with a couple other Harleys I have owned, I always use the clutch when shifting.
My question is: Is it necessary to clutch everytime you shift? Am I wearing out the clutch cable for nothing?
I am just curious as to what experiences other members have had and what the general feeling is.
Thanks for any input.
