Normally during "up shifting" you must roll off of the throttle and pull in the
clutch in order to engage the next higher gear. In racing (both drag and road race),
split seconds count. Rolling off the throttle, even slightly, slows your times and
can be the difference between winning and losing. The Dynojet Quick Shifter (DQS)
allows full throttle, clutch less shifting. This is done by momentarily cutting
the fuel and or ignition, which unloads the transmission. During this time, the
rider can shift up to the next gear without rolling off the throttle or using the
The Power Commander incorporates all of the Quick Shifter functionality in with
the main fuel controller and is fully programmable*. No cutting or splicing of your
bike's wiring harness is necessary. The amount of "kill time" is adjustable by the
user via the provided software. The user can also set a minimum rpm for the system
to function. This keeps the system from activating at too low of an rpm, such as
low speed road riding.
*Note: Certain bikes require an ignition module for Quick Shifter
Shift Rod Pressure/Tension Sensor - This universal sensor mounts
inline with the shift rod. The customer must provide the appropriate "length and
thread" shift rod. This sensor is available in both "push" and "pull" styles depending
on the direction the shift rod moves during an up shift. For most applications,
a Shift Rod Kit is available.
Linear Travel Sensor Kit - For applications where a bike does not
have a shift rod, or the Shift Rod Sensor will not fit, we offer a Linear Travel
Sensor. One end of this sensor is mounted to the shift lever itself and the other
to a fixed point on the chassis. This sensor is available in both "push" and "pull"
style to suit all installations. A universal mounting kit is included.
Handlebar Mounted Switch - A handlebar mounted activation switch
is offered for situations where a Quick Shifter sensor is not legal for a particular
racing organization, impractical to fit, or not preferred by the rider. The button
features gold plated contacts for durability and the least amount of electrical
resistance. The CNC machined handlebar button bracket has been designed specifically
to position the button for the most comfortable operation and accessibility during
use. To use this type of switch, the rider must first slightly pre load the shift
lever, press the handlebar mounted switch, and then complete the shifter movement.
Each Dynojet Quick Shifter Kit includes instructions and software that activates
your Quick Shifter through your Power Commander.
