mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...

General riding question- my bike doesn't seem to care if I pull the clutch when shifting. It changes gears just fine with or without it as long as I close the throttle, with no crunching or anything. I've read pros and cons regarding this, with some people even claiming it's better for the bike to not use the clutch to shift.

Thoughts from people smarter than I?

Works with cars as well.
The important thing is what range the rpm's are at. It will when it's right. It will not when it isn't.
WC2, that is so classy

I practically only use the clutch from a stop or going into a complete stop. The mesh in the ratio's is soooo close on most bikes that it is completely harmless. Just don't grind it until you find it...

Fun fact: Especially on looser transmissions (Trucks and bikes in particular), the clutch is only really there to make your shifts smoother. If you shift in the optimal range, the clutch is basically unnecessary.

That said, it never hurts to use it.

Oil goes in, smoke goes out. #oldmotorcycleproblems

My CB750 seems to be burning a lot of oil in the #1 cylinder. Might have to switch to a hotter plug. Gonna have to keep a good supply of 10W-40 around.
