To change gears, learn to coordinate your throttle and clutch (if so equipped).
- Release the throttle.
- Change gears (use the clutch, if so equipped).
- Release the shift pedal as you slowly reapply the throttle.
Be sure to release the clutch slowly. If you “pop the clutch” by releasing it too quickly, the ATV could jerk suddenly and cause you to lose control or fall off.
