Quick Shifter Plug Connectiion
on: September 02, 2016, 09:13:52 PM
Is there anyone out there that has a quick shifter fitted to a 2015 model. If so I could really do with a photo of where the connector comes out of the main harness under the left side panel. This has a blue waterproof connector on it.

with the quick shifter, if you aren't under hard acceleration will upshifting with the clutch still work like normal (if that makes sense)?
VFR800X (just a bit quicker than the 500X)

Yes it does, the quick shifter is still a mechanical connection, it just incorporates a switch that earths out a connection on the ECU, this momentarily reduces power to enable the shift, the same as reducing throttle but faster.

My Honda dealer told me no to use it under 4000rpm, do you use it under?

Do you use it only to go up or down too?

Sorry about the long time taken to reply Greg, I've been away on holiday.
Good advice from your dealer i'd say, but you shouldn't be watching the rev counter so closely, you will get a feel for when to use it, but I accelerate to at least 4000 in each gear before changing up. I don't use it for first to second as I just use first for the initial pull away and short shift up to second using the clutch. The shifter is for shifting up only and as far as I'm aware doesn't work for downshifting, not that I've tried it, I wouldn't want to damage my gearbox. You can use the gear shift in the normal way at any time in partnership with the clutch. Hope this helps buddy.
