Looking at buying the quick shifter but want to know how well it works before I buy any reviews or thoughts? Thanks in advance!
I had the QS installed with my 1K service. It’s nice, but they need to line the software out a little better. It’s rather abrupt and clunky, but is still fun to use for spirited riding. Wouldn’t call it a necessary upgrade by any means.Looking at buying the quick shifter but want to know how well it works before I buy any reviews or thoughts? Thanks in advance!
It also happened to me. I was on the road and suddenly I wasn't able to shift anymore. I stopped and saw that I had lost the screw. Was saved by a piece of wire and a pair of calipers. Was ale to get back home and just installed a new screw.Its fun coming off the line or powering out of corners. It does take a little time to get use to in. The Directions do not indicate to use any threadlocker. My rear bolt fell out at 700 miles. Lucky I did not loose it. after 45 min I was back in action. The rear bolt is tricky to get to. Its a fun addition, but I do not think its a must have.
That could explain why some work well, and some don’t. I went out and checked mine and the lever arms are parallel. Thanks for the feedback.I was having trouble with my quickshifter. It was installed by a HD dealer.
I took the bike to a specialist in performance bikes and he fixed the quickshifter for me.
He told me that this is a common problem with all kinds of quickshifters from all brands.
The problem was that the lever weren't in parallel. They MUST be for the system to work perfectly. They don't need to be VERTICALLY. They must be PARALLEL to each other.
See the images I posted bellow. In my case mine were in the RED position.
After adjusting it my quickshifter now works just fine - UP and DOWN!

This is good to know, I tried to order one and it said they wouldn't ship to California, but the dealer can order it! It's a California registered bike so I'm wondering if a trip to Vegas would yield the appropriate flash? I'm near Torrance BTW.I had the QS installed at delivery in Yuma, AZ. When I had the 1K service done at the CA dealership in San Diego, the QS no longer functioned. When I asked the tech about this, he wasn't able to help me and said they not permitted to flash the bike for QS functionality (CA..yay). So, I'll need to ride my back to Yuma at some point to get the flash down that will restore functionality. But I must admit that I'm not really missing the QS all that much.
