It's too bad HM doesn't have an MV application. I put one on my Kwak 650R and it's great. A tiny pack of gum sized computer under the seat and plug & play connectors for the stick coils. The strain gauge sensor needs about 50mm out of the shift rod and is programmable for direction (push, pull, both), sensitivity (force required) and interrupt time (I use 65 msec on the Kwak). Factory is based in the UK. Might be worth a call. Unit is used in MotoGP and runs the $500+USD range.Quickshifters either work in "compression" (push) or "traction" (pull) depending on which way the lever rod moves to engage the next higher gear. The OE quickshifter is obviously a traction setup and as you've swapped the rear sets to a GP style shift you now need a compression shifter.
There are a couple "plug and play" options. SP electronics make a fairly inexpensive one for around £140, with this one you need to state at purchase which type you want, push or pull. Another option is the Cordona shifter which is apparently a step up in quality, this one has the option to program it to either push or pull on set up so it's universal, benefit of this is in the future if you returned the bike back to stock you could switch the shifter back to pull. You can get these for around £240
The OE shifters are £330+ to buy so you should be able to sell yours to cover the cost of the replacement. I'm not sure about the F3 but the B3 was available without a shifter so there may be a market for people looking to add one. My Brutale didn't come with one but after riding the Dragster I am now tempted to add one.
In this case it's just a switch and OEM software. So shouldn't matter. I have the SP one on my B3, as of yet no complains. Just need to fix the travel of the gear lever. :thewife: After that i'll be 110% satisfied. All my future bike's have to have a QS, i figured that out after just 50 miles.Chris is pretty spot on there redphu72, just remember , cheap q/s makes cheap work of gearbox.
No , with inox secure wire embraced with polyester bicomponent pasteIs that held onto the lever with chewing gum? :laughing:
I just don't see a need for a quick-shifter for street riding. It makes the rider lazy and unfamiliar with the controls. Even for track-day riding, it is unnecessary.
Now, if you are a competitive racer with money on the line and the ability to win by shaving a tenth off your lap times, then it may be worthwhile.
There are better places, IMHO, where the money would be better spent.
And no, I have ridden neither system, as automatics hold no appeal for me, and quick-shifters would provide no benefit.
You can actually just change where the shift rod attaches to the shift lever so its between the peg and the pivot point, and continue to use the stock quickshifterWhy is NOTHIN ever EASY when it comes to set-up? Went with MotoDesigns rearsets GP shift pattern and now I need a PUSH type quick shifter. Anyone know where I can score one at a decent price? Thanks.
