I'm just afraid that if I let the clutch out and the throttle in slowly, that I'll burn out the clutch a lot faster than normal, hence why I prefer to quickly release the clutch and accept the jerk.

Ok, let's say from a stop, I started moving on 1st gear, when is a good RPM to shift to 2nd? It seems if I let it above 3.5K, I'd get a jerk when I go 2nd.

Dealership won't fix 2012 TSB about the cricket noise on my 2013 FR-S

Well..my phone's got the NFC sensor so it *might* have probably triggered the weight sensor somehow. But I always put it on the passenger seat, why did it only beeped once at exactly 1001th mile?

What do you mean by 'turned off'?

The beep isn't too subtle, like that beep when you set your rev warning, but like 3 seconds long.

Some says the supercharger gets in the way when doing other maintenance work, but it's easier to install in the first place.

Beep at 1001th mile?

Mine did when I reached 1001. Probably the signal that the break-in period is over?
