Ok..I know this is gona sound crazy!but my friend has a foot shift fourwheeler and they won't let me drive because I have no idea how..I know how to shift up and down.I'm just not sure when ur suppose to..cansomeone explain how and when to shift? Help would Be much appreciated! Thanks!!!
It's kind of hard to explain....it's going to take practicing to get used to it. I drive an old fourwheeler every day to go feed the livestock. It would be good if you could ride on the back for awhile and have them tell you when they're shifting so you can hear the change in the bike when shifting is needed. As you gradually speed up the bike will need to go into a higher gear, so you take your thumb off the gas and pull up on the shift with your foot and quickly put your thumb back to the speed you were going. Hope that helps a little....wish I could just show you in person cause it's really hard to explain. It will take some getting used to though to figure out when to shift up and down.
K, well first of all, it depends if there is a clutch or not. If there is than you need to learn how to use that in order to shift, that's called manual. But if there is no clutch than it is an automatic. To put it in first gear, you click up, than once you hear the engine start to get "louder and whinier" than you let go of the gas to get your rpm's down (revolutions per minute) and shift up again into second gear and so on. You just do the same thing to gear down, except you just click the shifter down. Lol its hard to explain, I drive manual dirt bikes and stuff, but for someone who has nvr learned, than it takes a while to understand, but good luck, ask more questions if you need to!! :)
Its an automatic..no clutch..thanks for the help..I know how to like shift up
And own it's just when to shift I have no idea!lol...like what you mean wen the engine gets louder it's always loud to me!baha
You can hear, when the engine will start to make a wierd noise, than youll know to shift, once you get used to it, itll be no problem. Its hard to explain like I said before, haha, sorry, but yeah, youll figure it out. Good luck ! :)
In a car I always figure shift to 2nd at 20 mph, 3rd at 30 mph, and 4th at 40 mph.
On a 4 wheeler I'm sure that won't work. The best way to explain it is listen.
When the engine is loud and it feels like your not going any faster and you should be, then its time to shift to the next gear. The opposite for shifting down. If it feels like the motor is quiet and its going to die, time to shift down.
