    Healtech Qucikshifter easy

    Anyone here ever try out this type of after market quickshifter? I searched the forum and only one topic on the process came up. It might be a neat add on. But, would the Trophy transmission be able to handle it? I'd be concerned given all the negative stories I viewed here about transmission damage on this bike.

    I've not tried one, and have no intention of ever doing so.

    Apart from having no problems changing gear on my Trophy,
    I don't think I could justify the equivalent of around USD $320
    just to be able to "...shift like a Pro!"   :164:   :015:

    My other bike, 2017 BMW R1200 GS, has this as a factory installed option. I was apprehensive about holding the throttle wide open and shifting, but it is smooth and works quite well!   It shifts about as quick and fast as an automatic transmission feels.

    Hi, I'm quite happy to "manually" change gear on my TTSE, but I did have one on my 2011 daytona 675, that was a race replica, played about with on behalf of Jack Lilley in Ashford  Middlesex, the bike was a little bit quick to say the least, I wish I still had it, but my back complained like hell after half hour, I traded it in for a Sprint.



    And at the Ace Cafe, London, with a friend on it  :164:....She had a Street Triple

    I can see the benefit on a Sports / Track bike, where you might be able
    to shave a few milliseconds off your lap time etc,
    but although the Trophy is classed as a "Sports" Tourer,
    such things just don't interest me personally -
    in the more relaxed style of riding I bought it for.

    Relaxed riding style, mmmhhhhhmmm!  That only suffices for so long and your wrist starts to cramp, and the tendons tighten, and the involuntary rotation of the joint occurs, and it lasts, well, not long enough! :002:  Ask 2slow, he's had it on numerous occasions and is a self described expert. :745:

    Quickshifter is standard on the new Tiger Explorer as I recall.  Would like to see it on my Trophy and especially my Sprint, with its spotty gear change mechanism.

    I loved the quickshifter on the Tiger 1200 when I test rode one for the day. It was addictive and changed seamlessly for all types of changes - even when I tried to mess it up - but especially full throttle up-shifts when overtaking. I would love to have one on the Trophy, as I enjoy the "sport" side of riding that this bike offers, despite 98% of my current mileage being on Motorways.
