Default Re: How choppy is too choppy for stock china girl?

This is a common problem and is more prevalent with youngsters who have never been exposed to vehicles with manual transmissions. There is a 'feel' that one acquires for engine speed and clutch engagement that only comes with experience. Coordinating those two elements takes a little practice but almost anyone can master the technique given enough time.

Of course it helps if the person has at least a rudimentary understanding of the mechanics involved but not absolutely necessary. I don't know how a computer works, but I can use one.

Tell your friend to ride more and practice using the clutch properly. Both he and the bike will be happier.
