Manual Shift
Shift Pedal
The gear shift pedal is located in front of the left-hand footpeg. One
full stroke of the pedal shifts the transmission to the next gear in the
shifting sequence. The pedal automatically returns to a horizontal
position when released.
To upshift to a higher gear, place the toe of your boot under the gear
shift pedal and raise the pedal one full stroke.
To downshift, place your foot on the gear shift pedal and depress the
pedal one full stroke. See page 65.
NOTE: To shift into reverse, see page 66.
Shifting without releasing the throttle and disengaging the clutch
could cause loss of control or vehicle overturn. Always release the
throttle and fully squeeze the clutch lever while shifting gears.
