due to road-shocks , bouncing on saddle , vibes , etc ...
most of the times you LOOSE precision on the SHIFTING .
gearbox don't like this and answer by a "false-neutral" or some bad sound .
many customers today ask me "how to correctly shift" and that's fun : i become kinda "teacher"
just this picture to explain the way i ALWAYS shifted with all my WLs and Big-Twins WITHOUT ANY PROBLEMS .
the tip is SIMPLE : if your hand stops movin' :
you got all the feeling and precision ya need to correctly shift .
( you also can FEEL the pinions comin'in touch together THRU the linkage TO your HAND )
by-bye false neutral , bye-bye "KRUNK" and others noises .
for those who don't already found this way to shift :
don't worry : the training will be very short .
