Quickshifter improvement?

Still a very new guy to the 1299 S. I've used BMW quickshifters for years, the most recent being a Gen 3 S1000RR. Both the up and down QS worked well and required only a bit of technique.

The upshift on the 1299 seems pretty good (could be better), but the downshift has so far eluded my attempts to master! The upshift works quite well on a short-shift; a little hard on shifts under a lot of power (expected). Sometimes downshift works OK, sometimes no shift but a Throttle Blip (speedup) etc. Seems like downshifts need some work.

Is it merely more time required of me to develop better technique, or should I look into something like Translogic QS kits?

Thanks,
Brad

Yeah don't waste your time with the OEM shifter sensor its garbage so get the Translogic. I ran the old ones for quite some time they worked but got sloppy quick. Been running one of the new versions for months now its a better improved design so here is the correct part number for the 1299.

Throttle has to be closed for down-shifts. Are you closing it fully?

Yes, but good on you for checking me. I've also tried lightly unloading the gears, a technique that sometimes helps on other bikes: nothing. It works a good deal of the time, just sub-optimal. I need to spend more time on the bike and see how it goes, but I believe there is a lot of room for improvement.

Thanks

have you got throttle spacers installed?
Try removing or repositioning them. They may interfere with the full closed throttle, meaning your throttle is never really closed.

Brilliant idea. This forum is fantastic. I bought the bike used (1700 miles), so I don't know. It's super easy to check, so I'll do so today.

Thanks

Took the throttle apart despite some slack: no spacers. Great thing to check tho...

The hold kit or just the sensor? Where did you get them from in the US?

Just the sensor it comes complete with plug/shift rod and is plug n play. Order directly at Translogic it's faster then getting it from dealers.
