Never even heard of it... but it looks cool and would probably work well... the PC knows your RPM and all....so with that and the Dynojet name.... sounds like a good part.... I'm sure SpeedWerks can tell you more about it!

I have one for my bike. Its basically a limit switch. right when the gear shift lever is going into next gear it kills the engine long enough to allow it to go into gear without letting off the gas. it does not do any shifting for you like an airshifter would. you still have to foot shift. Mine isnt installed yet so i cant tell you how much i like it.

Full throttle clutchless up-shifts are cool :)

The quick-shifter replaces your current shift linkage. It's a momentary switch that is activated when you shift gears, telling the power commander to cut fuel for X number of milliseconds (this is an adjustable setting, most applications seem to want about 100ms of cut time). The result is that the transmission is unloaded for that fraction of a second, and the tranny slides into the next gear. For racing, this can shave about .5 seconds off your lap time, depending on the track.

Basically, it's the same thing as doing clutchless upshifts by snapping the throttle closed and back open with your wrist ... it just does it a whole lot faster than you can :)

So all you have to do is just pull up on the shifter (or push down if GP style) and it automatically cuts power while you keep throttle at full twist?

okay here is a question for all ya......on dirt bikes if you are riding hard sometimes some people dont use the clutch to shift up at all anyway but you still have to cut the throttle and then lift up then mash the throttle back on... without the clutch.... would that screw up a street bike???i wont do it i am just curious??

There's no difference between a dirtbike transmission and a streetbike transmission.

You can upshift without the clutch. As I said above, you just snap the throttle closed with your wrist, shift, then get back on the throttle - no clutch. Before all this new-fangled technology, that's what we all did on the racetrack :)

The quick-shift add-on for the power commander does exactly that - when you shift with your foot, the momentary switch tells the power commander to cut fuel delivery for a fraction of a second, unloading the transmission and allowing the tranny to move into the next gear. The difference is - you keep the throttle pinned wide open while you're doing it.
