Though you may here that its no problem to kill the motor with the clutch, the truth is, you dont see the problem till it wont run anymore.
That's bad advice Bikeguy Joe. Using a clutch to induce sudden stoppage is bad not only for the clutch with increased wear, it is not good good for the engine. You may do this regularly with normal motorcycles but the HT engine is notorious for its poor clutch and difficulty in finding replacement clutch pucks.whatchootalkinboutwillis?
Using the clutch to kill the engine has no ill effects whatsoever. I have done it with dirt bikes and motorized bikes for a looooooooong time, no problems.
