Got mine.....AWESOME!!

Added the full Akra system headers and slip-on, just sounds the business when shifting now!

No warranty issue with Acro headers? I was told not too fit them by BMW saying they would not honor the warranty then.

Got my shifter and it is cool how it works, not really using it that much though. For regular riding I just use the clutch as always. Only really to embarrass other bikes at the lights as the acceleration has improved. Also feels as if the gearbox is smoother.

I will try it at Redstar on Friday and it is sure to make a difference. I will also try it off road the weekend although I can't see it making much difference, maybe when you are standing up.

I will update.

I will never buy a second hand BM with a quickshifter  :peepwall:- shows you what kind of riding was done  :patch:

Your going to stop riding BM's then? The new ones will all come out standard with quick shifters.

Small power gain, a little weight loss and it sounds better :thumleft:
