quickshifter problem

Hello folks I have just bought a PK-POWER quickshifter which looks identical to the dynojet version and have a couple of questions....should it click or move in any way? the little barrel with the threads is solid...I thought it might move like a switch?.....also does it matter which way round I mount it, I have harris rearsets on my 929 and the supplied rod is way too short so I am thinking of cutting the harris shift rod and drilling and threading the end to mount the quickshifter but it would mean mounting it with the threads on the shifter facing rearward???? any advice is welcomed..........cheers guys

Never seen one but I wouldn't expect it to have noticeable movement in it. Put a mulitmeter on it and measure continuity under compression and tension.
Can't see why direction would matter.

Re: quickshifter problem

I'd say, it could be a solid no movement pressure switch. For the directional thing, which ever way is prettiest.

My question is.. Is it pull or push though?

These things have no noticeable movement.. If they did, it would just make shifting feel sloppy.

Re: quickshifter problem

Re: quickshifter problem

I looked into these before I bought the Dynojet version instead. There will be some movement in the unit and yes id expect it to be push. I'll get a pic for you if it helps.

Re: quickshifter problem

You may have to fab something up to make it work with the bent rod, Im sure it can be done. Do you have pics of the pressure sensor itself?

I went with the powercommander too but I went with a pull style sensor and found a shifter that works just right so now its a "gp style" pattern 1up 5down.

Re: quickshifter problem

well.. I have made a makeshift rod until Harris send me a custom made rod.......the result is not good....I have plugged it into the powercommander and kept the default setting of minimum revs at 4000rpm and a kill time of 75ms....I dont have an install program for the quickshifter......it just recognised it on its own is this correct? there are no downloads for any quickshifter programs at dynojet etc, anyways the gears grind like hell when I try to change with the bike on an abba stand with the revs at 6000 ish......any ideas?

Re: quickshifter problem

does it have a light on it? Mine has a little light on it you have to adjust the rods so that the light is green, and when you move the shifter up it should turn red

Have you actually ridden it to see if it shifts cleanly while the driveline is loaded up?

Re: quickshifter problem

theres no lights on it at all I havent rode it yet bladeracer because the rod is too short and the gearshift is unusable with my foot but it can be changed by hand and its not under tension before I attempt to change gear...is there a way to test it with a multimeter?

Re: quickshifter problem

Re: quickshifter problem

I have only had this one a few days???? I will keep tryin to get this one working, it might be software related? someone on the forum mentioned activating in the powercommander software but I just had the settings pop up on their own.....I will do a resistance check although I have no idea what to expect (and I,m rubbish at electricary lol)

Re: quickshifter problem

You need the power commander QS software disc to activate it mate, you open the programme and activate it from off to on. When I was looking into PK they said they would supply the software, id give them a bell. Failing tht I have the original disc, could burn you a copy if all goes wrong.
