You can keep the throttle open during downshift. It probably isn't advisable while the bike is screaming its knackers off, but holding a partial throttle isnt an issue at all.

You can also downshift with the throttle fully closed as well of course.

It definitely shouldn't feel clunky either, not unless the bike was labouring at the time? It can sometimes feel a little hesitant and clunky at low revs, but 99% of the time its a nice slick gear change.

One thing the quickshifter is sensative to, is the chain tension. If its a bit slack the shifts can be a bit imprecise and not as snappy as usual.

How about reading the user manual?  All instructions for the shifter are there. On the 2019 bikes (same as 2020?) the throttle has to be closed for a downshift.

How about read the manual and double check in English on here ? The manual seems to say keep throttle open so I ask on here from users of the bike thats all

On my 2017 you had to roll most of the way off for the bike to downshift (like 5-10% throttle application) otherwise it would just not shift.

No need for forums if every one trusted the manual
