  1. when down shifting coming to a stop do you have to indivually clutch each gear or one long hold? and i also work at ups but in cali

  2. Thanks. Very informative. I was shifting gears and hitting the throttle at the same time. I didn’t know.

  3. Just got a Ninja 300 and this video is by far the most informative video I’ve seen so far. Thanks!

  4. It looks really easy. I think I kinda know. I’m 5ft 2″ what bike would you recommend me???

  5. So, I am a beginner rider, I have taken my MFS test and passed! Super excited!!! I purchased a Ninja 300 and the first time rode it, it did a wheelie. What did I do wrong? I am so afraid to get back on because of I do not want it to do a wheelie. Help please! The video was great and thank you for posting!

  6. so when you break while in 2nd gear or 3rd gear ect.. when you are fully stopped in 2nd gear, do you have to put it in neutral before you take off again?

  7. So what happens if i was strolling at 60kmp on 3rd then red light comes up, (I would normally pull in the clutch, front brake, rear brake and down shiftto first, all at the same time) then green light suddenly comes as Im slowing down. (I pull out clutch, then give gas) but my bike get jumpy and it gets rough. Ive been having that trouble.I have ninja 250

  8. Taking my MSF course in a couple weeks. It will be my first time driving a bike. Thank you so much for all the help. I hope I do well and pass and can get a ninja 250r that I have been eyeballing

  9. Hey, thanks a lot for the video. I’m a 65 year-old looking to get my first bike. This was great.

  10. thanks mate GREAT video !! im 24 and looking to get my first bike and i have a question when lesy say im coming to a junction do i have to go into nutral so say if im in 3rd do i have to got 2n 1st nutral ?

  11. hey man, is your Kawasaki Ninja 250 still working? they say that Kawasaki motorcycles are not durable. thanks for the video man 🙂

  12. hey I just recently got a 2016 kawasaki ninja 650 abs but only problem is stopping and going. and when to shift

  13. What rpm would you normally change gears at going up and down? And at regular cruise speed, say 40 mph, what would the desirable rpm be?

  14. just got new bike…im completely new too the bike too…so as you were saying always left off gas whether accelerating or decelerating. I’ve tried that but it always seems the bike drops drastic speed when I let off the gas to clutch. it seems to work better when I apply gas gives me a smoother transition. can you guess what I’m doing wrong? 2017 ninja 300 btw…

  15. how do I switch  up gear and not get a little jerk? I notice I have to give similar amount of throttle where ever I last was off…to make it a bit smoother. down shifting I found doing a quick double rev helps with the down shifting…

  16. if your rpm is 5-6 what speed and gear should you be in? I hit first time going 50 mph but lost track of what gear I was in think I was in 5th by the time I was 45-50…not sure if I’m matching my rpm right with my gear…

  17. one thing I haven’t figured out is how to maintain my speed or keep from slowing down while I’m up shifting I seem to loose 10 mph of speed every time I upshift playing catch up always lol….think I to slow shifting…still learning

  18. Did you stop while in third gear? Or were you downshifting to one while you were braking? I’m 5’1 and 100 lbs. Will I fit on a 250r

  19. I’m picking up an 06 250 Ninja on Wednesday. My 1st bike. I’ve not ridden any sort of motorcycle since 92, lol. Thanks for the video it was very helpful.

  20. you didn’t really explain breaking on 2nd or 3rd gear,do i always need to downshift before breaking?
