Quick Shifter

Hi Guy's,

I have been away for a while but have returned. I have 2012 Fireblade. this is my second Fireblade. My previous bike was a 1999 Fireblade. What a difference in power and handling. I am wanting to put a quick shifter on the bike. Not sure what brand to consider. I also would like to know can you get a blipper for this model or is it only 2017 Fireblades onwards.

I look forward to your replies, as I am keen to get the right quick shifter on a soon as I can

Re: Quick Shifter

Welcome back. Sweet new blade. If i were in the market for a quick shifter I would probably be considering 3 brands. Dynojet, Bazazz, or Healtech. They are all reputable companies and are current in the marketplace. The Healtech one is a different style, as it doesn't use a traditional push/pull sensor. You would have to look it up. I think Lambchops did a video review of the Healtech one he got for his Beastie Blade, but you would have to google that. Good Luck!

Re: Quick Shifter

Sorry we can’t be of more help, we’re mostly into the older carbed stuff so not many of us are up to speed with the newer Blades.

Hi, check out the quick shifters, power shifters and throttle blippers made by TRANSLOGIC. They are one of the best if not THE BEST.

Re: Quick Shifter

I am speaking to local dealer of Translogic today. They have the intellishifter for fireblade but no blipper. I think a blipper can only be fitted to 2017 and after fireblades. I will keep you posted.

Make sure it's set up ok, otherwise you get this (pic) and wonder why it jumps out of gear

Re: Quick Shifter

Hi Guy's

I have installed the Translogic intellishift for Honda, it is only a quick shift no blipper. Went for a ride to day with a mate he has Kawasaki 900. It was awesome. No clutch just tap, tap, tap. Why did I not get one earlier. So all I can say is very happy with Translogic, very happy with the guy's that installed it. Just about to sit down with a Jack Daniels and watch the GoPro footage of today to see the speed difference. I will keep you posted.

Re: Quick Shifter

Its been a few weeks now with the quick shifter. What a difference once I am in 2nd, no more clutch. If you tap up in first you get neutral, so worked that out pretty quickly. Its great for around my city and awesome in hills and on the straights. I fully recommend getting one. I appreciate all your comments. I would also recommend Translogic. No adjustments required just plug and play. Went out today, its Easter break in Australia. Went for a ride in the country where there are some long stretches of open road. You got a love the blade, my 2012 is like a race horse, just can't keep it down. Lucky for me, passing cars still flash their lights when there is trouble a head if you now what I mean. 5 cop cars on a country with an RBT, not speed cameras. Back out again tomorrow. So now just sitting back with a a Jack Daniels and some GoPro footage of today. Go the Blade.

Re: Quick Shifter

Hey @Drybo , you must have had too many Jack Daniels!! Your second most recent post repeats half of the first.

Fully agree with you about quickshifters though. More a 'fun' mod for street riders, but great when doing rapid overtakes and just bang, bang, bang. I have one (up and down with blipper) on my 2018 SP2.

The reason for no blippers on the pre-2017 Blades is that the ECU cannot be programmed to accommodate it.

I think there's a learning experience in this for us all. I'm up to speed (woops, sorry) with the current models, but sadly lacking with the early ones.

We could definitely use some more knowledge with the newer stuff, as it will bring in more members. Glad to have you as our “modern blade” specialist Nigel.

Re: Quick Shifter

Blipper capability is usually dependant on throttle being RBW, no?
