I have to ask. My Buddy has a 2006 Honda 250 ex. It has a clutch, However he never uses it to shift. he treats it like an semi automatic. It does not stall when he shifts and he does not use it even when he comes to a stop. Whats up with that. Thanks Tom

The "sport clutch" in the 250EX is a joke. It is still an auto clutch system that engages when the shifter level is first moved, and they just added a clutch lever and cable to allow manual clutching.
It can be engaged either way, and is not a strictly hand lever operated clutch we are all used to seeing. The 250EX also has a centrifugal clutch internally that would prevent stalling anyway.

So I quess it would be a good step up for my daughter. No ? She had been riding another friends Suzuki 250, which was semi auto. So this machine would give her an oppurtunity to learn to shift with a clutch , with out the headaches of stalling. Thanks

Yes, that setup would be idea for a new rider wanting to learn the best of both worlds.
