With this auto clutch you still have to manually shift gears....you must still select the proper gear using your foot and left finger. However, it relieves the need to fan the clutch in technical sections. If you're trying to squeeze between trees in the the wrong gear the bike will most likely stall. So as always the bike will still need to be in the right gear for the clutch to work.
