    Has anybody fitted a quickshifter to their Honda Crossrunner? Mine is a 2016 reg . Are they worth the cash and cost ?
    Also can you downshift with them .

    Many thanks  Bob

    Yes (mine's a 2015)
    Don't know (mine was 2nd hand, but I like it)
    Yes, but only in the same way as without one (i.e. they give you no added benefit)

    I've just fitted one to mine Bob and used it for the first time yesterday on a run up to Rothbury, Alnwick & Seahouses.
    I really liked it and pleased I fitted it but it's a personal choice if you can justify spending the full price on a one.
    I'd contemplated one for ages (mine is a 2016 bike too) but was reluctant to pay Honda prices so was keeping my eye out for a used one when mine came up - my unit was brand new and very kindly got offered it for 2nd hand price so I had to go for it  :001:
    I mainly ride with the wife as pillion and found yesterday, when I was riding with a bit of va va voom, that it was much better for her as the up shifting was so smooth and I could just keep the throttle pinned.
    There is no change on down shifting, the quickshift doesn't assist with that at all so still have to use the clutch.
    If you want to have a go on mine before deciding, you're more than welcome - I'm only in Cramlington

    I have one too on my 2016, fitted it myself, easy job. Really find it useful for those times when you need to get away fast. Doesn't work on the downshift, very smooth on the upshift.

    I have a Crossrunner 2017. I want to install a Quickshifter but before buying one I woulod like to see the installation manual and see the instructions.

    I found one for the VFR800F but I think the steps of finding the connector in the Crossrunner is different. Can someone help me with this?

    I think it's the same and certainly mine was easy to fit. They're the same engines so no reason to suspect the connector is in a different location.

    I found the installation guide for VFR800F and the harness where I need to connect the cable from the quickshifter is easily located under the left side fairing (behind the radiator) and the quickshifter OEM part is: 08U70-MJM-D11

    For the VFR800X the OEM part number is: 08U70-MJM-D60 and it is way more expensive that 08U70-MJM-D11.

    So, not sure if the kit for each motorycle is different and if the harness connection is different :S
