HM Quickshifter

#1 Post by MrBrightside » Wed Aug 09, 2017 12:52 am

So my HM quickshifter plus has arrived. Has anyone had any experience fitting before? Straight forward enough? I'm no mechanic but not a total ming mong either.

Any helpful advice before I start?

Slightly less hassle than changing plugs... still not a job id want to do very often but so worth it.

Do you have one on your blade? I had one, which is exactly why I bought one for this one. I think quickshifters are one of those gadgets when you use one, you'll always want one.

I'm gonna deffo give it a shot, looks fairly straightforward but as JRH mentioned I'll deffo have the plasters on standby I can see some scraped hands looming :)

Yeah, one of the first things i done to it. Find it weird riding a bike without one now.

Just wish it was east to install a downshift blipper :lol:

The blade was a paint to i stall as the frame covers the outer coil tops making it tricky to get access. Busa may be more open and accessible.
