I up-shift only all the time, from third thru sixth. It's down shifting you don't want to do. Just back off the throttle all the way and shift when your back all the way down, be quick about it. The gears will go right in, they are not made of glass. Just perform this in the higher gears and not in anger when you're snake eyed and bustin' the curves. To practice this, just give thee clutch lever a slight squeeze, like 1/16th of an inch. My God it's a BMW........not a Yugo.
