  • CHANGE GEAR SMOOTHLY

    You must learn how to change gear correctly to be able to ride on the public road. Selecting the correct gear for the speed of the bike is imperative to riding smoothly and being in control at all times.

    You need to be aware of how gears are matched to the road speed, it is also important for you to understand how gears are selected in relation to varying road conditions.

    So that you do not become confused in which way to operate the gears, a nice way to remember this is:

    • Speed up – change up
    • Slow down – change down

    While you are being taught, you will learn about the motorcycle’s sequential gearbox and how to use the controls correctly to aid a smooth gear change.

    CHANGE GEAR SMOOTHLY
  • CHANGING UP THROUGH THE GEARS

    • Throttle off before each gear change
    • Pull the clutch fully in
    • Push gear lever up to select the next highest gear
    • Don’t rush the gear change
    • Release the gear lever
    • Release the clutch fully
    • As clutch is released open the throttle

    CHANGING UP THROUGH THE GEARS
  • CHANGING DOWN THROUGH THE GEARS

    • Throttle off before each gear change

    • Push down to select the next lowest gear
    • Don’t rush the gear change
