How to Use a Clutch on a Dirtbike

Steps

  1. Go out to an open area.
  2. Start the bike with the kick starter on the right side, beside your right leg.
  3. Always let your bike warm up before riding to prevent damage to your engine.
  4. When ready, pull in the clutch all the way, then on the left side, push down on the shifter to put the bike into first gear.
  5. Gently give the bike gas while letting the clutch out slowly.When you need to shift gears, it is up to you to use the clutch to shift up or down. However not using it will tear up your gears.
  6. To put the bike in neutral when the bike is not on, depending on the bike, shift down until it is in first then lightly click up a gear.If it rolls forward without stopping then it is in neutral. For bikes with only 3 gears neutral is always the lowest gear. To be sure, tap down about 5 or six times.

    How do I know when to shift?

    Listen to the engine. When the engine gets louder and you hear it sound like it is stressing more than it should, that is when you shift.
    Thanks!

    Do I have to change gears, or can I leave it in first?

    You have to change gears if you want to go faster, because if you rev the motor up too high, the motor will blow out. Even when you just want to cruise, you have to at least shift up to the second gear.
    Thanks!

    Slowly, slowly let the clutch out and slowly give the bike gas and you should be able to do a nice start.

  • Question
    Do I downshift when I want to go down?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    By going down, I assume you mean slowing down; so yes. But if you downshift while going faster than a gear can handle, you will destroy the engine; only downshift if the engine is at low revs [2-4K].
    Thanks!

    Your clutch is not by your foot, it is by your left hand. But yes, you need to use your clutch when braking.
    Thanks!

    When I release the clutch, do I have to be in first gear?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    Yes, when first starting the bike, you must start in first gear, but as the RPMs increase, you must shift up to a higher gear.
    Thanks!

  • Question
    How long does it take to let go of the clutch?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    It depends on the amount of revs you're at, but just release the clutch slowly until you feel the bike pull back.
    Thanks!
  • Question
    Can I shift back into neutral while the dirtbike is on?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    Yes, but no power will be going to the rear wheel, so you will be coasting and the engine can work freely without the clutch being squeezed.
    Thanks!

  • When you feel the bike start to pull you, let off of the clutch slower and give slightly MORE throttle
  • When riding in the woods or through technical terrain, it is necessary to slip the clutch. This is where you basically bring the clutch back to its engagement point while moving forward so that you can build revs while going over rough terrain. This sometimes helps on hill climbs if you are going too slow and starting to bog the engine.
  • You can also just shift the gear without using the clutch. However, sometimes when you shift from 2nd to 1st it will roll in neutral, so be careful.
  • Let the clutch out very slowly at first, think " centimeter (0.2 in) per second"
  • To do a clutch wheelie, give the bike gas, pull the clutch and rev the engine super high then let go of the clutch and off you go!
  • Lean forward when climbing hills.
  • Make sure to always clean your bike before and after a ride.
  • For two strokes, you don’t need to use special mix fuel, just make your own. To do this, mix normal fuel and two stroke oil together. Mix really good, and it runs like race fuel.
  • If you feel that you are giving too much throttle when starting, let off a little while still doing the clutch.

Warnings

  • Check the bike for any problems and also make sure you clean it.
  • Make sure you are wearing protective gear.
  • Do Not mix synthetic oil and regular oil!
  • Be careful with the gears when you are on a track.
  • Change oil after every ride if you ride for a long time.
