It works awesome and I absolutely love it! Never had a bike with a quick shifter and didn’t even know it was an option until my sales guy suggested it. Now I will never own another bike without one.

Fast shifts and my left hand thanks me already. Stay on the gas and shift, doesn’t have to be at high speed or with the throttle pinned. Just consistent gas and don’t roll off the throttle.

I’m still in break-in and won’t be going over 7k rpm until after my 600 mile OC. Can’t wait to really pin the throttle and let her rip!

I have my quick shifter waiting in a box as well. Glad to hear it is working well. I'll put it in some day soon.

How does one "activate the quick shifter"?
You just shift up as normal, but you do not need to clutch. You do not let off the gas or even roll off it at all; you need to be under consistent gas, but it doesn’t have to be pinned. It will give you “track-like shifts” all the way through the gears, very fast shifting. For around town and for shifting when you are backing off, say already going 65 in 5th, you won’t quickshift into 6th for cruising at 65, you’ll clutch and shift. It’s just for accelerating fast or at least under consistent gas. I don’t seem to have enough opportunities to use it yet, I ride with my wife on her Rebel mostly. When I’m by myself, especially when using a ramp to merge on a highway, or when you get a chance to just let it go. The Yamaha QS is a pull (up) style, by there are numerous makers. Some make versions that you can set-up for shifting up by pressing down rather than the standard pull to shift up.

I love quick shifters and don't want another sport bike without it.
Now just wait until you ride a bike with the auto blip downshifter. Sooooo awesome.
Just bang down thru the gears and it rev matches for you. No clutch.

Yes!! That sounds awesome!! I’m pretty sure if/when I get my next bike, it’ll be a new R1.

From Yamahas R1 site:
  • Up & Down Quick Shift System (QSS)
    The Up & Down Quick Shift System (QSS) uses a sensor on the shift linkage to modulate power during shifting, allowing for split-second clutchless shifts up and down through the gearbox. Full-throttle upshifts maximize forward drive under power, while the ECU precisely matches engine speed while downshifting for nearly instantaneous gear changes with minimal chassis disruption. The QSS can be adjusted between three settings with independent downshift function control.

My apologies for not being clear. I know how QS's work, but this line on their site makes it sound like something in the bike's programming/ECU needed activated before the QS would work
"All you need to do is install our Quick Shifter on your 2017-19 Yamaha R6 or 2015-19 Yamaha R1 and activate the Quick Shifter function and you are clutch less shifting your Yamaha R6 or R1."

Yeah, the R1 Quick shifter seems to be alot different than the R7 version in respect to the up and down features

There is a “program” change as the quick shift icon now shows on my display as it didn’t before it was installed. However, I didn’t do the install so I am not sure on how to “activate” the QS function. Sorry!
