so glad I've mastered clutchless up/down shifts - they can stuff their quick-shifters where the sun doesn't shine

with clutchless shifts (and proper chain maintenance) I've replaced the chain & both sprockets today after 32k kms of hard riding - rear sprocket still in perfect nick while front started to get a bit shark-toothed

could easily have continued without replacing the rear but from the advice within this august forum, it seems best practice to do the whole lot at once

I wouldn't go that far but, for me, a quick shifter on a Street Triple great fun .... do I ride my Tiger like I did my ST and think the Tiger needs one :084: .... definitely NOT.
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

I love the quickshifter on my wifes Street Triple. Only problem is its a lethal amount of extra fun on a bike thats way too much fun as it is.
But I think I like it even better on the Tiger. These bikes arent perhaps as nippy as a Street Triple but theyre no slouch either and the quickshifter, for me at least, enhances the road riding experience. Where it really shines, however, is off road. Suddenly realising you need 1st while part way up a slope or maintaining control while downshifting on a steep, loose decent are just 2 examples of where its incredibly valuable. In fact, Id rate a quickshifter as far more necessary and beneficial on an adventure bike than a sport bike (that wasnt on a racetrack). Anyway, I love mine.
