Motorcyclist Magazine Z125 Pro video

https://youtu.be/8DuHkYS7YRk

I cringed watching this. I'd never treat my own bike so roughly.

Apart from the downshifts at very high RPM looks like my usual commute to work

Don't mind the orange either, reminds me of my much loved and modified 2003 Z1000

I have to say I also cringed watching that video. Wonder how long the engagement dogs in a z125 transmission will hold up to clutchless shifting? They aren't exactly built MX bike tough.

No cringes here, just a dude getting to work...

I don't downshift through the rev limiter but I do ride WOT all the time and only use my clutch between 1->2.

FWIW I clutchless shift my "nice" bike about 50% of the time too. Unless you're horsesh!t at it it causes very minimal gearbox wear.

Dropped a gear... . . . . . . . . . . ...still here

This is essentially the same as a KLX110, how well do those gear boxes hold up?
