Quickshifter
« on: October 31, 2020, 07:37:20 AM »
The only thing i miss on my Tiger is the quickshifter,I had one on the RT1200and even though it was a little clunky i loved it.Has anyone had the OEM version fitted and was it an improvement?

Never had one fitted to my 800 Tiger, but had one fitted to my 900 GT as an extra, best quick shifter I've ever used.(others being a GS / Multistrada) ..

Cheapest and more easy ones to install are these https://www.healtech-electronics.com/products/iqse/

But I don't think you get rev matching for downshift, then there is the pro choice, but might require a more experienced person for setting it.

I was possibly going to go with the Triumph option not sure fitting a aftermarket one would void the warranty

To my knowledge the Triumph shifter is not on the option lists, so I've heard it's not compatible, maybe other will shine in on this !?

enquired about this for a 2019 XCA - dealer told me it's not available - either the wiring harness or the ECU doesn't allow for it?

would have been nice but now that I've mastered clutchless up/downshifts, I'm not missing it at all

You can learn clutchless up & down shifting. It's only timing and finesse.

Absolutely, especially that the Tiger gearbox is the most user friendly gearbox for clutchless shifting, my yami in contrast, is a lot more firm and  not as forgiving.

I agree the Tiger gearbox is awesome for clutchless shifting, absolutly a doddle going up coming down needs a bit more care, obviuosly itll never be as good as a quick shifter, ive used it on 1200, the speed triple R and the new Tiger 900 GT and Rally pro, the last 2 were by far the best and I think its purely down to the Dogs bollox gearbox that the Tigers have always had.

Clutchless downshifts are only fun if you have a slipper clutch or similar though.
