Here's an example (not perfect - example, but you'll get the idea): MSR Houston. 17 corners Begin coming out of turn 1 ( 2 upshifts), go thru 17/16 then 3 upshifts on the way to the launch, maybe 1 upshift between the keyhole and the bus stop, then 3 upshifts on the back straight, then 2 or 3 upshifts between diamonds edge and the carousel.

Total upshifts per lap 10. For easy math call it 2 minutes per lap which is 5 upshifts per minute (average = 1 every 12 seconds). In a 20 minute session that is 100 times you have to twist your wrist / preload your shifter and shift. And heaven forbid use the clutch if you are living in the stone ages.

If you are riding with Buck or @ Harris Hill - it is multiplied x 1.5 (30 minute sessions) or you have to do all that 150 times per session. Take 100 x 8 sessions and you have to do this 800 times in a day or 1200 times if you are riding 30 minute sessions. Add that to the downshifts (quickshifter doesn't help here) and you have to go throught the motion 1600 or 2400 times per day.

With a quickshifter you eliminate 50% or as many as 1200 motions per day. You still have to gently mover the shifter, but no wrist snapping / clutch pulling or firm preloading of the shifter prior to the shift.

At the end of the day you will be much less fatigued - it really does make a big difference! That is the MAIN reason I have one.

Now you KNOW these young'uns don't think like that!!!

by the time you get ready, the bazzaz will prolly have all the traction control built in and for the same price if not less.
IMO the quick shifter's only advantage is consitency on lap times.
you still have to get lines,entry speed and all that good stuff down on your own.
of course i dont know how much experience you have.....
but they sound awesome down the straight aways.
Bazaaz makes a unit with all three FI/QS/TC for a retail of $999. Just set it up on my buddies GSXR1000...it rocks. Just a main unit and the quick shift rod.

Retail is $999....you know I didn't pay that much.

, Dyno Jet is practically the same price or more for FI/QS and I don't even know if they do TC.

Man, I hear you, but I just have a problem with a $1k price tag for something like that... I'd have to be racing in the National series to justify that kind of expense I think. Of course if you're going to endurance a liter bike, it can help take the worry out of causing a high-side with the TC.

I have the Bazzaz qs and Im running an air shifter on top of that. I know there is a knock off comp. out of Germany. I cant think of the name now, but its only 150 for the qs for the PC. I had one on my last bike.

Heard today the Bazzaz unit is only somewhere around $400. It's very tempting......
