Anyone want to talk about Donald Trump while we’re at it? Lol
My quick shifter was enabled when the bike was delivered. I kinda wish I could turn it off but I can't.
Ah, the ignore button. As useful as CC.
You can unbolt the sensor and zip tie it away from the magnet and disable it without issue.
That didn't seem to work for me. I got a check engine light on all of the time, until I put the sensor back in place.
FWIW, I don't see much use for QS for the mostly off-road riding that I do, but having to pay just to disable it seems pretty cheesy.
I think you can: click Set - scroll down to Motorcycle - scroll down to Quick Shift + and turn it off. Might be different on your bike?
I own a 1290SAR and have been looking at the 790. I really like the QS on the 1290, but in some technical situations in which I prefer full manual control, the clutch lever is there for me. Why on the 790 is it necessary to pay to have the option to turn QS off, as opposed to simply not using it?
O, I read that someone else had done it and it worked fine with no light.
As Ronski said above, it didn't work for him but I read that another inmate had done it without issue so who knows? Worth a shot maybe but sorry if it doesn't!
You have to pay extra for that option
You can use the clutch normally as you said. The only issue is if you lightly bump the shifter with your foot or forget qs+ is enabled and go to preload the shifter out of habit...
Obviously that is rider all dependant and it sounds like plenty of folks never run into that problem. I found it happening rarely but often enough that (for me) it was better to just leave it disabled and not have to learn new habits. Whether that's smart or lazy is up for debate, lol. Regardless it's what works for me.
Mine came with it enabled. Only downside is a couple times I've put just enough pressure on the shift lever to make it think I'm going to downshift but I didn't actually downshift. This causes the engine to rev in anticipation of the downshift and you end up getting a little surge in speed. Could be an unpleasant surprise if it happens at the wrong time.
Not quite right. My S came with QS enabled. It's been to the dealer twice, once to enable Cruise and Rally Modes and another for the 600 mile service. QS is still enabled.
Would it still be enabled if the dealer did a firmware upgrade?
CSM is down the hall. We insult each other frequently in the basement. No need here.
Tell that to the esteemed veteran who started it. I’ve been trying to talk about quickshifters this whole time buddy!
Mine came with the QS enabled, has been back to the dealer twice and it still works, I think it is better for downshifting, it is just unnatural to upshift without bliping the throttle.
Mine arrived in June '19. No quickshift up/down or sideways. Happy with that too. Left foot and right hand is QS.
My dealer just called me and reported my 790R (to be) is in. This might make this discussion more interesting- he said the QS comes enabled shifting up, costs extra, $329-ish, to be able to quick shift down. Maybe that is what everyone is saying but I missed that, if so. So, cool, I'll use the clutch down and QS up- when I feel like it. I have QS both directions on a 790 Duke. There is no way I can shift/work levers as fast as pulling up on my toe without letting up on the throttle. And, you do have to learn not to diddle with the shift lever unless you are intending to do something.
