How to Shift Gears on a Motorcycle?

Shifting gears on a motorcycle is no walk in the park! You must be familiar with the clutch and the shift pedal. First you must make sure the motorcycle is in neutral, which is just between 1st and 2nd gear. Once in neutral you must keep the clutch pulled in which is on the the left handlebar to start the motorcycle. Keep the clutch pulled in once you have started it. Then put the motorcycle in 1st gear by pressing the shift pedal down or up depending on they type of bike you have. Once you have the motorcycle in gear slowly release the clutch while increasing your RPM’s with the throttle. Continue to roll the throttle to increase your speed. As your RPM’s and speed increases you will need to shift to a higher gear. Make sure you keep your hand on the throttle while shifting gears. Each time you shift a gear you will need to pull the clutch back in. Have a great time riding and remember to always be safe.
