i am putting a 2-5 override in my bike. i would like to know exactly how they work and how they work with the lock up? Also how do you race the bike with the over ride? i am under the impression that you dont have to use the clutch while shifting with the override. i have a triple ported stock set of cylinders, stock stroke welded crank, sb oof cpi pipes, 35mm airstrykers, lightened frame, +8 swinger, cool head, lock up, new clutch and soon to be 2-5 override. all i do is the sand 300ft drags. my gearings is 15 and 46 i beleive not 100% positive.

have u already bought it ? now im not 100 % sure.. but i believe the true overide >u must come to a complete stop before u start down shifting.

and also on both overides.. u dont want to just let off the gas and let the motor backload, it will blow the tranny. u must pull the clutch in while ur still on the gas.

im sure more people that have ran them for yrs will comment.. i have a 1-5 n down duneable from wcr

Transmission requires
the rider to pull in the clutch whenever he
or she is decelerating in one of the
override gears. The best way to think of it
is, you always want the motor to push the
wheels, not the wheels push the motor.

You're not gonna wanna do much 'putting' around with a regular override. I'd recommend doing a search here, and on BHQ and read up quite a bit on these, especially since you got a regular one and not a duneable.

It is best practice to pull the clutch and then let off the gas. Excessive back loading could bend/break shift forks...

Remember it this way, the engine should push the bike, the brakes slow it down.

Click in second, use the clutch to take off then shift with no clutch full throttle.... Maybe overrides of old, non-dunables, were a little less forgiving.
But if you mess up a few times and don't pull the clutch, don't worry about it...

(Pulled in)
I wouldn't go slamming down gears just after you go through the traps...but, if you're within a reasonable speed, downshift.

yea thats what i meant.
good info to know. pretty much gonna be my first override. so trying to learn and figure out everything about it.

I just want to put the power to the ground. i have heard alot about them being a pain. im an easy going guy so its gonna take alot of screwing up for me to bad mouth them. i just put the new cylinders on and im hearing i wont be able to shift with out one of these. so this is where i stand.
