HM Quickshifter’s 2019 Auto Blipper range updated

LOOKING FOR a sweet bit of bike jewellery as a xmas gift? Then this could well be just the thing. Okay, most superbikes come with a quickshifter these days, but Brit firm HM Quickshifter offers an upgraded auto-blipper part, using a strain gauge sensor rather than a simple sprung switch device as used on some OE fittings.

The strain gauge has no moving parts, so is more reliable, and many racers (like Keith Farmer, below) prefer the feel of the ‘solid’ sensor rather than a switch device. Developed to simply ‘plug and play’, the device fits directly into the existing wiring loom so it’s a piece of piss to install. Suitable for both road or race (standard or reverse direction) gearshifting and fully adjustable for sensitivity, it also fits both standard and aftermarket rearsets.

HM Quickshifter General Manager Ben Varley said “We’re excited to be able to offer the benefits of ‘strain gauge’ technology to riders of the most sophisticated superbikes. Racers can save tenths every lap, trackday riders can concentrate on their lines, whilst road riders can enjoy smoother gear changes and maximise their riding enjoyment, so it’s a ‘win-win’ for all types of riders!”

The HM shifter setup comes as a kit, for just £366 (inclusive of VAT). More info from
