There is no clutch lever on the handlebar for the old "automatic" Hondas. Also, I was the one who typed in like fifty shift patterns - just ignore that message completely, sorry.
I was trying to say that I think that Dennis (dez1) described how to shift your bike correctly.
Jerry correctly described how to shift a certain type of Honda engine (now copied by Lifan with some success), but I swear that the Hondas sold in this country in the 60s and 70s didn't use that method. Newer Honda cub copies might, though.
