What’s the advantage with the quick shifter here? I find the cb to be so easy to do clutchless shifting up and down, why would we need a quick shifter? Am I missing something? Anyone try both?
No one needs a quickshifter. It's a want, a luxury. Since my CBR1000S1 has an OEM QS, I decided to add the Honda QS to my NSC. I've owned many bikes and those two are the only ones that have a QS. I've always done clutchless upshifts from 2nd - 6th on other bikes and they were smooth as silk, however all cabled throttles. I found the NSC difficult to be smooth on ALL upshifts.why would we need a quick shifter? Am I missing something? Anyone try both?
Yes I tried both.What’s the advantage with the quick shifter here? I find the cb to be so easy to do clutchless shifting up and down, why would we need a quick shifter? Am I missing something? Anyone try both?
You use standard shift and I'll use a QS. I bet I'll make it to the end of a quarter mile before you, and on a circuit I'll bet the QS will allow me to brake later into the turns.With the QS, shifting is slower than you can do yourself. If you can already master the gearbox, you won't really get much out of having the QS.
Too many unknown factors in an exercise like this for the results to have any true meaning.You use standard shift and I'll use a QS. I bet I'll make it to the end of a quarter mile before you, and on a circuit I'll bet the QS will allow me to brake later into the turns.
Really? I have a 2017 CBR1000S1 that's had an ECU flash.Too many unknown factors in an exercise like this for the results to have any true meaning.
My Fireblade will definitely beat you.--
Shoot a video of you upshifting from 1-6 with the throttle absolutely fully pinned the entire time without a QS. Then, starting at 120mph in 6th, bang down through the gears to 20mph in the shortest distance possible without a QS or a clutch lever.Yes I tried both.
It works best to either open the throttle at a position that gives you the desired acceleration rate and hold it there, or to keep it pinned wide open. Changing throttle position during shifts is counter productive and not always smooth.I still find myself rolling the throttle though probably more out of habit then anything.
I know that the lever places the bike in gear whether the bike is on or off or whether the QS is turned on or off. My left foot lifts the lever at the same rate no matter if it's a QS or non-QS. Try upshifting your bike through all the gears with the throttle locked wide open. Don't unload the transmission to upshift. Report back on how that worked out for you.Apparently you don't know how the QS works.
I’m not 100% sure wot makes a difference since the ecu and quick shifter is basically doing what you would when you roll off the throttle to slot the gear I n clutchless. Think about it. You’re at 10k in second gear, and you roll off to 7k to get into third. Same thing the qs does. So maybe you save half a calorie in wrist action and remove some technique from the experience.actually you do.
1. you can up-shift with WOT
2. have a perfect down-shift every time
And on a naked bike neither of those things seem too appealing since at 100mph you’re gonna get blown of the butt end of the bike without a windshield if you hang out there for too long.
Hell, I can hit 90 in 1st on my S1 and Honda put a QS on it when they built the bike in Japan. No one needs a liter bike either. GROMs are popular AF, so let's all ride them.Not to be obtuse but I can get to nearly 60mph in first gear, second at the most. So again, not seeing the value of the qs. But hey man, you do you. Whatever brings you joy go for it
