szazbo, why would the donor bike need the original programming? If it's working with the thing bolted on to the shifter, why wouldn't it (the bike) still work if you took it off. I'm not saying...

That sounds familiar. I think my dealer told me that when I mentioned reading that it couldn't be uninstalled, when I was talking to him about buying the thing. Getting old is hell.

I agree with Cug. I've had mine a couple of months, and don't use it much anymore. Downshifting going into a corner it's great, but upshifting, using the clutch is smoother.
