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.
The HM shifter setup comes as a kit, for just £366 (inclusive of VAT). More info from www.hmquickshifter.com.
The Auto Blipper is available for these bikes, (as well as the huge range of standard upshifters for many other machines):
