Power Shift

Jun 14, 2007
I have a 98 KTM 200 and the last few times Ive taken it out on the trails I have been power shifting through the gears. Usually the only time I pull the clutch in and release is when I want to get the bike going (from a stop).

I know that 2 and 4 strokes are a lot different and an older buddy of mine who has a ton of experience on bikes told me that he never uses his clutch on his Honda450.

Is this okay or not advised?
