When downshifting I find it hard to precisely match the RPMs to the new lower gear. I have a 2008 BMW K1200S and I just can't seem to get the downshifts smooth. So, I developed the habit of pulling in the clutch, downshifting while holding RPMs steady, then letting in the clutch to get the RPMs up without making the bike jerk. My question is - will this put too much wear on the clutch? Should I expect a drastically shorter clutch life? The bike has 33,000 miles on it now. BTW I can smoothly upshift without using the clutch and do this most of the time.
