What does the quick shifter do?

BikerJan, the quick shifter is a device which attaches to your gear lever and wired into the ECU or power commander of the bike. It can work in many ways but 1 is that when you ride, you set the device so that at a certain RPM the motor will be killed for a milli second( either by fuel or spark) and you can change gears in a fraction of the time it would normally take to do it manually.

You can keep a pressure on the gear lever which the sensor pics up or you can have a actuall switch fitted to the bars where you can change gears while keeping that pressure.

Lots of variances and benefits but I would say mainly aimed for superbikes, used for dragging ect... I've ridden a plenty bikes with quick shifters and yes it is FUN if set up right and does improve times.

Hope this helps  8)

Thanks for the explanation, does not sound like somethng one needs when doing gravel riding, which is what I do 99 percent of the time

 Eish dudes.  Why on a GS?

Where will this all end?  A base model LC is R140k. You can't even buy that in SA.  No!  We need to fork out R188k and from September when the bloody shifter become factory fitted probably R198k. The "extras"  will be 30% of the total price.  Sjoe!

2013 LC
2014 changed LC
2015 changed again LC

Will the thing have 4 wheels and a roof by 2016?

The BMW version is more advanced, check the link I posted. It does not affect technical riding in any way.
