  2. Bought a new MT09 in 2018 which comes standard with a QS in Australia but have never used it. Been riding without one for 40 years and muscle memory just reaches for that clutch lever every time. Maybe one day……..lol.

    Reply

  3. The 3rd best thing i did to my mto9 is add qs….no i dont need it…but it makes the ride 200x more fun. …Its like you dont need double cluched pedal shift in a car , but heluva fun playing with it……

  4. If you don’t like it , don’t use it . I think it’s pretty cool option or mod can be handy cutting down time in racing if you’re into that.

  5. Best motorcycle upgrade???? a QUICK SHIFTER absolutely love my bike with it I use it every day

  6. I’m only 2 minutes in so I’m not sure what else you’ll say, but of course you don’t NEEEEEEEED it, but you have the freedom to do it, so why not do it if you want! I don’t particularly want one, but if they want it for the street, let them have it!

  7. Quickshifters are so cool it's not even funny. U don't have to use it every shift only when u want/need.

    Reply

  8. Hop on your little trail bike and head north, say 2000 miles, until you run out of road. Your toy becomes your tool. Get your zen on man.

    Reply

  9. I never understood quickshifter on a bike cuz really the only time it would come in handy would be in the downshift cuz in upshift if ya reving hard the gear up will just slip in anyway

    Reply

  10. For new riders I agree, a quick shifter may divide the riders attention between the street and the speedometer. Whereas knowing your in 2nd/3rd gear and within the speed limit without looking.

    Reply

  11. Part of the enjoyment of riding a motorcycle is shifting for me. I think quickshifters take away some of that sense of finesse and skill that you may feel proud of. For the track definitely makes sense but even then it takes away from rider skills and gives more credit to the machine.

    Reply

  12. Shifting and clutch work is what riding is all about. Might as well buy a scooter if you are too lazy or stupid to use a clutch and rev match.

    Reply

  13. I agree with you for the street 👌 if it hasn’t it cool but more important mods you could do if your bike doesn’t come with a quick shifter especially if you never plan on tracking the bike.

  14. Ive only got a bike with a QS a month or so and i can already tell that itll be very i mean very useful on a long ride. Specially here in asia maybe not in america but here if youve seen the traffic and add the high humidity and heat youll wish you have a quickshifter. One time on a long ride My left hand started to cramp up luckily i was already close to home. QS is usefull on track and long rides with alot of traffic. So i would say it is overrated yeah in america. Ive driven on american roads and it made me sleepy thats how nice your roads are

    Reply

  15. Wouldn’t want a quickshifter on a bike like your YZ 450 BUT on our Tuono 1100 Factory V4 it’s a MUST! Reason you don’t use yours CC is because you still have that LAME OEM stock exhaust on your bike man, geeez break down & spend some mula on a nice exhaust so that you can hear (and feel) our Tuono’s awesome power, sounds nowhere better than when your quickshifting too!

    Reply

  16. Quickshifter are amazing you don't have to be on the track to appreciate quickshifer, It just one thing you don't must to own but when you do it's making your life easier.

    Reply

  17. IF YOU DONT WANNA SHIFT. YOU NEED TO GET OFF THE BIKE COME ON GUYS ITS LIKE HAVING A AUTOMATIC MUSCLE CAR. WTF.

    Reply

  18. I hear you, I probably wouldn’t pay extra for it. But my panigale 959 came with it. And I do like to use it every now and then. Specially if I want to punch it hard. Remember is was designed for racing so, it is kinda fun.

  19. I love the quick shifter on my zx10r was the best toy other than a pipe I bought!

    They sound frickin awesome when blipping up all the way through the gears

  20. Did I see you at mid-Ohio? I’m sure you would love it. Next year let’s get you out on the track.

  21. Is the "quickshifter" a necessity? Of course not, it's great to have even while riding on the street. But it should never replace the skill of rev matching, that's something you should certainly know how to do. The reality with most that are fitted to sport bikes is that, if you're not in a highish rev range they don't work well or at all. The MV quickshifter you have to be high in the revs for it to be smooth, otherwise it's very clunky. My Ducati's sometimes won't upshift if you aren't giving it enough gas. So in a way you're correct, there's no real "need" for them, but they are awesome to have if it comes stock.

  22. For an extra $130 on my MT-09, you’d be foolish to ignore it. I love it, keep your fingers securely planted while rippin full throttle. I can shift as quickly as the quick shifter. Keeping me safely attached to my handle bars with wind blasting me in the chest is what I like about it.

  23. Quickshifter is one the absolute best mods you can do to a street bike. Stop giving people bad information CycleCruza

    Reply

  24. Says a person who only drives when there are 3 cars on the road lol Quick shifter is great for merging onto freeways, and even better when you are in traffic having to down/up shift all the time. It for sure has applications for people who commute daily or enjoys spirited canyon rides. That said, its a pretty expensive addon and it sure is not "needed", but I don't believe they are overrated, just might be for your style of riding.

  25. I disabled my oem R1 quickshifter.
    I like working the clutch
    Its what comes natural when
    you're driving a manual transmission
    Some limp wrist snowflake must
    of come up with the quickshifter
    I never use that shit….
