Quickshifter on F4

Hi, has anyone here fitted a quickshifter on his/her F4 1078? I'm thinking of fitting it to my bike. But my local dealer, following advice from the principal in Italy, is advicing me against it. If you have fitted one, let me know how it works? Reliable? Any problems? Which brand is the best out there? Cheers

Nik - I have an HM one fitted to my 07 1000R

(apologies for phone pic)

I researched the make quite a bit, but kept landing back with HM. You'll need rearsets (I was told by Harris in the UK that I would land up with a race pattern shift, but it doesn't) and a Power Commander. Some (most) Japanese bikes can take the QS straight into the loom, but MVs require the PC - having a map doesn't hurt, obviously. Total cost was about £1200 all in, and gained 10hp.

IMO, a QS should be a standard fitting as I really rate them - the graph showing the before and after power loss during a shift says it all ...

I have a Dynojet quickshifter on my bike, and there is no difference with yours on that area. Mine works perfect.

Agree Jomarti - the 996 has a much bigger John Hackett Performance one, which works just as well, although it's quite a bit more sensitive - I probably need to jiggle the rearsets
