The gear change foot pedal pivots on a bolt, which is a large allen head. Remove that, then you'll separate the pedal from the rear set. Then you can pivot the pedal around and remove the bolt which attaches the quickshifter to the pedal.

well lets go try that now...

no dice - that thing is set tight. Tried anti-clock wise and clockwise just in case it was a reverse nut but its going no where.

Its NOT reverse threaded. There is threadlocker on it from the factory. If you have a heat gun, or a hair dryer and more time, warm it up.

If you're using allen wrenches, its going to be harder. Its better to go out and buy a set of allen head sockets which attach to a 3/8" drive ratchet.

It will come off. It will help if the rearset body is bolted on. I wouldn't try to take it off with the rearset loose.

Yes, definitely easier if the rearset is bolted to the bike and internal hex sockets make life a lot easier. When I did my quickshifter last week I removed the bolt holding the gear lever to the rearset to remove the gear lever. I then unbolted the clutch slave cylinder so I could get to the bolt holding the other end of the quickshifter on easier. I then removed the whole quickshifter and gear lever while it was still attached, put the gear lever in the vice with soft jaws and undid the quickshifter from the gear lever.

Holy crap, was writing this when you posted that you had taken a fall. Hope your ankle isn't broken!

I have your answer as I just changed my oem qs for my TuneBoy qs.

You have to take the 3 #8 (I think) allen bolts to remove the clutch reservoir (not the clear plastic one up by the lever, but the one where the line ends up down by the shifter).

Where the clutch line ends up that blocks off access to the pivot bolt holding the shifter rod. Remove the 3 bolts, lower the clutch reservoir, and voila! You will not have any clutch fluid come out btw. Just do not touch the line bolt.

Then you will have great access to the #8 (I think) forward pivot bolt holding the shifter rod. The clutch reservoir will be orientated in such a way that you can't really mess it up when you put it back on but do your best not to damage the rod that centers assembly.

Did mine this way and all is fine. Took me 20mins to replace the shifter

Oh, this is all in addition to removing the 2 rear set bolts you already had off.

Happy New Year
