    I don’t’’y know this brand

    And I don’t understand the need to a quickshifter ?
    Maybe for track day ?
    Tell me ?


    i would rather use my clutch myself to keep smooth shifting.

    With the quick shifter you can do upshifts without closing the throttle and without using the clutch.

    Clutchless upshifting is possible without a quick shifter but you must close the throttle.

    A quick shifter is certainly not a necessity and people do complain that the upshifts in the lower gears can be rough.

    I'm looking at it as an experiment, stay tuned. I hoping that the little CB will be noticeably quicker with the quick shifter.

    A QS shines at higher rpm in any gear. Stretch her out to 6k+ then slap the shifter. It’s amazing fun

    Thanks!

    I could set the shift light to 6k and use the QS when I see the light, clutch when I don't.

    The quick shifter has arrived. Ordered from Healtech on Tuesday afternoon, arrived Thursday afternoon. Healtech is based in Hungary!

    I'll watch some Youtube vids tonight on it's installation.

    Screenshot from the above video.

    See how the cut-off time can be adjusted for the RPMs via the phone app.

    As far as I know none of the OEM quick shifters have this feature. Dino says his BMW R1250R does not.

    Although, I have seen claims that some OEMs "learn" the optimal cut-off times.

    BTW The app for iPhone is now available. It's a good thing since I have an iPhone.

    Has any body put one of those Chinese pipes on their bike -question is the mid pipe the same for all the 300 series-some advertisements say yes some no -my guess is the R uses a different mid pipe but you never know

    A couple of people here put on the Akrapovic exhaust, didn't like the noise, and went back to the stock exhaust.

    I reckon the Chinese exhausts wouldn't be any better.

    I had a Chinese pipe on my F quality was good so good I can't see paying the outrageous price for a name brand-it's just something to play with-I enjoy tinkering with my bikes

    So like I said I like to tinker -today I was looking at the thing Honda calls a rear fender after removing the extra piece Honda added to widen it and noticed three sets of holes where the licence plate bracket bolts to the long fender stay only two sets are needed--it looks like you maybe able to shorten how far the plate bracket sticks out by moving up to the next set of holes- that would be 50mm closer in -when I get a chance I will investigate---anyone else noticed this

    I have no idea where the ignition coil is or how to access it.

    Can anyone help?

    I'm trying to install the Healtech quick shifter. It plugs into the ignition coil.

    I reckon if I could see the spark plug wire that it would lead to the ignition coil. But, the top of the engine is hidden beneath the battery box. I'm wondering if the battery and battery box have to be removed.

    I've removed the seats and tank cover and the front bolts of the gas tank. The gas tank is tilted up and resting on the battery box lid.

    With the tank tilted up you should be able to see it bolted to the top of the frame-as you follow the spark plug wire-use a mirror and flash light if needed

    OK, I see the ignition coil. It is visible through a triangular opening in the frame on the right side near the head tube.

    It looks like this. I can see the green terminal.

    [​IMG]

    The Healtech instructions say to determine which terminal is the positive and which terminal is the negative. Does anyone know if the positive is the green or the black terminal? Seems like they should have made the positive terminal red.

    I see no other way to access the coil other than removing the battery and the battery box.
