Proper Way to Use a QuickShifter?
I recently installed HM Quickshifter SS but there's little to no instructions on how to use it. Granted that it's only been 2 days but I find it harder to shift up without clutching in and this applies to all gears. With the clutch engaged, up shift or down shift is buttery smooth. I did come to light that it works better when I do a hard shift up and continue to apply pressure until it clicks up while accelerating. Is that how it supposed to work? I don't know if it matters but my bike is barely broken in at 1,4xx miles. There was no indication of which direction is up or down on the module that goes inline with the shift rod so I just wing it. I also noticed that at first gear and I press down on it, the engine seems to cut-off for a split second. My shift pattern is standard (up to shift up and down to shift down). Is that normal?
It's currently defaulted to 60 ms cut-off time and I'm guessing that I would have to use it more often to know where the sweet spot is.
