www.cycle-tek.com only way to go.

I like knowing when I come up all I have to do is push a button. I can still drag my feet and catch another gear. It seems like a no brainer to me. I have had the quickshifter and I know how nice they are. With the airshifter I can leave the air off and use it like to push button type quick shifter on the street. I have become dependant on the quickshifter, but it doesnt allow me to drag my feet.

700$. The one I'm looking at is 360$. I dont have the wallet to support all of the mods I would like to have. I would do the Pingle if I wasnt already needing lowered,Brocks,PC, and a shifter. , I have not had the bike a week and I'm already into it for a sizable chunk of change. I hear ya though.

Not really drag his feet(although I still do for the first bike length or so) but in the midst of trying to get a good launch and 330', trying to bounce your feet up on the pegs can disrupt the clutch hand, throttle hand and the chasis of the bike, all at the same time.... Launch, drag feet, concentrate on rpms, traction and wheelies, if it stands up, just stab the button and save the pass. Go to 2nd, pull your legs back up once the tire is settled down, concentrate on the tuck, stab the button for 3rd...... Much easier this way.
