I have a few different questions that popped into my head after reading about preloading the shifter in motorbikes, here's one of three:
Shifting between 1st and 2nd on a motorbike - will the bike auto-shift into neutral because of preloading and that being in neutral doesn't require any kind of "engage" to happen? If not, could someone help me clear up the specific mechanism going on here?
EDIT: I didn't realise you can only post one question every 40 minutes, so I'll integrate the other two questions into this one:
Shifting between 1st and 2nd - as there is a greater gap to kick up from 1st to 2nd, do you need to do anything differently to allow for a smooth transition?
Shifting with preload: how much pressure should you put on the shifter? i.e. Should you apply light pressure until you feel it go and then harder pressure to then getting it into gear? Does this differ depending on gear? ...I'd like to know as much as possible before potentially damaging my transmission!
