I went to a motorcycle mechanic and he said he raced motorcycles and shifted gears on mine a few times without clutch. Can this mess it up?
I'm not a motorcycle except and I have a 1982 yamaha 650. On the way home after the shop, the bike felt fine. I just was wondering if what he did can grind the gears or any damage if he did it a few times to show me it's possible. I hear both sides about it's fine, but I was just concerned it could lead to a problem. (I'm not sure how motorcycles work, especially the old models)
