O.k. did a search and came up with 660s & 700 answers. But that does not answer the 350 question is it possible or is it not possible. Those who have experience I need your input.

A manual clutch is a manual clutch, at least on the vast majority of sport atvs. Anything you've found as far as feasability and reliability will be applicable to your warrior.

just make sure you let off the gas before you shift.

I have done it with all my machines including my old 1986 200x ATC and have only had to put in 1 clutch in 21 years. The key is to learn at what RPM's each bike likes it and like 06Rappy700R said let off the gas when doing it and it will slide right in.

I don't do it all the time but when on fast trails or open sand it is sometimes easier.

Thanks everyone for the closing arguement in my mind about clutchless shifting. I often wondered if just race quads could acheive this method as 450Rs and others. I only got to try clutchless shifting going into turns too fast by lack of skill. But will give it some practice thanks again. :thumbsup:

clutchless shifting

The only time I use my clutch is to take off and stop. One of my friends tells me not to use the clutch unless I have to. He says using it to shift every gear is just burning up the clutch plates which in turn will cause me to have to replace my clutch more often.

technically you dont have to use the clutch... gears are synchronized enough that wont be that bad but i always do...

"Crashing" through the gears is very possible. I have done it on all my bikes and do it some on my 350 but it isnt good for it...not that i had any problems out of any of them but it isnt something that should be done 100% of the time.

I agree 05 Raptor 350 Blue. also it much cheaper and easier to replace a clutch then it is to replace stripped or broken gears. I know people do drive without the clutch but unless you can line the speed and rpm's up perfectly every time it is more whear on the trans that should be soaked up by the clutch.

in my VERY LIMITED experience, i have noticed that downshifting without the clutch slips into gear much much easier than upshifting. but i'm pretty fast at upshifting so I just use the clutch. same amount of time virtually. hope this makes sense, i've been drinking...
