So got the factory quick shifter installed today without any issue until I tried to activate it on the bike...tried over and over and nothing. Tried the ways you guys said on the install threads and nothing. Anyone else have this issue?

It took me a couple tries, I don't know if it was me or the bike, it's a pretty simple process, then someone else said they had to do it multiple times I thought maybe it wasn't me.

Other than the apparent quirkyness of the process, the only other thing I can think of is maybe the connection isn't being made. Either the connector or the switch itself.

Thanks, yeah I have to test the connector on my next day off. Only thing I can think of is it's a bad unit and isn't communicating with the ecu.

I had this problem and it took quite a few tries. What I noticed is that when you are holding up on the lever enough, the actual gear indicator disappears. You really have to push the lever up beyond the shift point and into the QS activation point, and you know this happens when the "2" gear indicator just goes blank. So the bike was in 2nd gear (per the instructions, shift up into gear while the bike is off) and hold the shift lever up when you turn the key, and the gear indicator should read blank once the dash fully lights up. Then wait until the little QS logo appears.

IF you have the bike turned on and the gearshift indicator does NOT go blank when pushing up on the shift lever, you probably missed a connection or have a faulty component somewhere, but that is probably a good way to test and make sure it's functioning correctly.

Yeah, you have to pull up and hold the shifter higher than normal. Nothing crazy, but more than just a usual up shift.

Very helpful thank you I'll give it a try tomorrow. I did notice I need to shorten up the shaft a bit; the shifter seems a bit low and close to the peg.

This helped big time. Got it working today, thanks much!
