Shift normally on up shifts without backing off the throttle or using the clutch. You have to have the throttle closed to use the auto-blip clutchless downshift feature.

For the record, that sounded like a troll question.

i've been at it for quite a few miles...it seems to me that unless you are aggressively downshifting, you're better off using the clutch until you coordinate the throttle action you need to stay smooth - i'm referring to street riding, and after years (countless miles) of throttle blips i'm "having fun" re-coordinating it all :)

Not true. It downshifts just fine with throttle open, and I can hear the blip.

Ya? The reviews were saying it had to be closed. Good to know

No worries. I think you may have misread the review. If you think about it, why would you need auto blip if the throttle is already closed?

You lost me. I would imagine it would've been an activating trigger for the AB to work so the electronics know it's time to blip, I dunno. So does it work above 10K or were the reviews wrong in that aspect too?

Now this I do not know, as I only have 800 miles on the bike and I am strictly following break in procedures... Will find out soon enough though.

Blipping the throttle means cutting the throttle for a split second as you are shifting.

I always thought blipping meant giving it a little bit of throttle to ease downshifts and match engine and wheel speeds closer. That's how it's translated in the 1299, no? Auto-blip means it automatically "blips" the throttle to increase revs to match engine and wheel speeds on downshifts.

Im only referring to downshifting here. Upshifts are different in that the DQS cuts the throttle to allow for a clutchless up shift.

Yep, my bad on my definition. Sorry about that. Will have to watch the tach when riding this weekend to see what is actually happening.

Thanks.

So now that we understand blipping, does the throttle have to be closed for auto-blip, or...?
In the 7K to 8K range that I am now keeping it to during this stage of the break in period, I am getting the auto-blip with open throttle. The sensation and sound are much the same as an F1 transmission downshifts in the Ferraris I have driven. This is as much as I can now confirm.

Wouldn't a closed throttle be even more reason for a good 'blip' on the downshift ??
